Each week, eJournal highlights a wellness resource to bring attention to the helpful organizations, articles and websites that are available for members or anyone who may need assistance.
In honor of Emotional Wellness Month this October, we’re sharing strategies on how to improve your emotional wellness from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). According to the NIH, “Emotional wellness is the ability to successfully handle life’s stresses and adapt to change and difficult times.” Check out the helpful checklists in their Emotional Wellness Toolkit to help reduce stress, improve sleep and more.
Find additional wellness resources on the MBA's Health & Well-Being page, which was launched in April 2020 to support member wellness during COVID-19. It features helpful resources for coping with stress, anxiety, panic, substance use disorder and more during the pandemic, with links provided by the ABA Commission on Lawyers Assistance Program, as well as the MBA’s own Lawyer Well-Being Committee.
