Managing Stress And Improving Wellbeing: Our Favourite Apps For Lawyers

Apps to help lawyers reduce stress

Law is a demanding profession, and at times it can feel like significant stress is an unavoidable part of life as a lawyer. But in more recent years there has been increased awareness of the mental health issues that prolonged stress can cause for lawyers, and steps are being taken to change how the legal profession approaches mental wellbeing.

At an individual level, lawyers can use a range of strategies to manage their stress levels, time pressures, and deal with difficult situations. All of this can help lawyers to better manage the demands of the law and build resilience. As part of Mental Health Month this October, we have put together a shortlist of great apps lawyers can use to manage stress and build resilience - both inside and outside the workplace.
