Mindfulness 101: The Reemergence of Lawyers—Better, Smarter, More Efficient, More Mindful, and Healthier

Debi Galler

In order to best serve our clients, we lawyers have much to do. We have pleadings or contracts to prepare, clients to meet, checklists to check. We are often in perpetual motion, rushing to meet the needs of our clients. We check our to-do lists, we check them twice (and no, it is not to determine who has been naughty or nice). It can be an exhausting process. Add to that the blessing and the curse of digital technology, by which our clients and colleagues measure our response time in minutes, if not seconds. As a result, we lawyers might be placing ourselves on a treadmill that we do not know how to stop.
