Lawyers...In Need of Some Work Life Balance?

Working over 80 hours a week? Can't seem to get it all done? Stressed all the time??

Well you're not alone.

Today an increasing number of lawyers are experiencing burnout, low productivity, insomnia, and stress related illnesses...undoubtedly due to a lack of balance between their work and personal lives.

Although the concepts of achieving balance are simple, actually creating a balanced life isn't easy, but it is definitely worthwhile.

Here are some steps to help you on your journey toward life balance. It's a process so be patient with yourself. It will also require that you closely examine your personal and professional life.


  1. Living for the expectations of others at work and at home
  2. Consistently putting the needs of others before your own
  3. Fear of change
  4. Hung up on appearances
  5. Perfectionism

Once you identify your blockers pay attention to when you use them as excuses to justify why you can't achieve balance in your life. Explore ways to accomplish your balance goals in spite of your particular balance blockers.

Share some of your current work-life balance strategies. What's worked? In what ways does your employer support you in creating work-life balance?
