The Joyful Practice for Women Lawyers with Paula Price | How to Deal With Anxiety

The feeling of anxiety is extremely common among legal professionals. Whether anxiety is part of your personal experience as a lawyer, you have friends and colleagues who struggle with it, or it’s something that you understand anecdotally, there’s been an increased awareness of anxiety in the field of law, especially during the pandemic.


There are lots of places anxiety can show up in various aspects of your legal practice, and it might be prevalent in your personal life too. From smaller day-to-day triggers to bigger-picture stressors, we’ve learned that the number of lawyers struggling with anxiety is significant.
