About this course
At Warrior One, we're lawyers. We understand the challenges: huge volumes of work, difficult cases and really difficult people, a culture that rewards perfectionism and competition, and living surrounded by conflict. All of which can lead to overwhelm, anxiety, exhaustion, even reduced competency.
Extensive research shows that mindfulness helps overcome these obstacles and leads to competent, resilient, joyful lawyering. The 2017 ABA Path to Lawyer Wellbeing Report, the seminal treatise on the matter, states that, "To be a good lawyer, one has to be a healthy lawyer," and offers this ringing endorsement of mindfulness meditation:
Mindfulness meditation is a practice that can enhance cognitive reframing (and thus resilience)..., reduce rumination, stress, depression, and anxiety[, and] enhance a host of competencies related to lawyer effectiveness, including ...focus and concentration, working memory, critical cognitive skills, reduced burnout, and ethical and rational decision-making.... Evidence also suggests it can enhance the sense of work-life balance....
