LawCare champion gives conference speech in Greece
LawCare champion, Sam Jardine, did a fantastic job speaking about mental health in the law at the 15th Panhellenic Conference of Legal Services Lawyers in Athens.
Sam spoke about our Life in the Law report, the effects of stress, and unhelpful thinking styles such as catastrophising, emotional reasoning, and black and white thinking.
He also shared his 3 top tips:
- We can get to know ourselves better. If we learn who we are and how we work, we can improve things.
- We can learn to like ourselves. Many mental health problems stem from our lack of compassion for ourselves. If we can learn to accept ourselves, with all of our unique qualities, as well as our weaknesses, then we have started on the journey to good mental health.
- We can learn to look after ourselves. Think back to when you were a child. What did you love doing? Do you still love doing that? Do you still make time for that alongside your work?
