There’s no question that legal technology and productivity are key for legal professionals. But why is ‘wellness’ a focus?

One Legal’s Customer Success Manager, Lili Daniel, has also been teaching yoga and leading energy and intention-setting workshops for several years now. She shared her thoughts on the importance of prioritizing personal well-being in and out of the office.

Wellness matters

“Lately, self-care has come to the forefront in many areas,” Lili said. “People have come to realize its importance in the workplace. It is now highly accepted in many companies that self-care is needed to do the job properly.”

Working in an industry that is considered to be one of the most stressful can be very taxing, with a deadline-driven, billed-by-the-hour work requiring a lot of hustle and not a little hassle. But that doesn’t mean your own wellbeing matters any less.

“In order for us to be focused, present for our clients and our team, and for yourself, you have to take care of yourself, so you can have more space to take care of others,” said Lili. “Doing well at this can tie into doing a great job anywhere in life.”

Workplace Wellness at OneLegalLive 2018

Each Wellness session during our four-day virtual conference has been chosen to give you tools to, in the words of Lili, “combat bad days and savor good days.” Most of the session leaders have their own corporate jobs and other responsibilities. They know the long days and the importance of doing something for yourself and can provide insight with the understanding that we’re all balancing something or many somethings.

These courses will help you balance, too, to create space for what is needed in your life.

So,a what exactly will be featured during these sessions? What can you hope to learn?

Intention setting

One Legal’s own Lili Daniel will lead this session, inviting participants to take a moment to set intentions for their lives. Learn a little more about what that means and how to set yourself up for success in whatever you do.

Breath work

Chair yoga

Can’t make it to a yoga class every day? There’s nothing to stop you from giving your body a break while at your desk. These basic moves will increase blood flow, ease tension in your neck, shoulders, arms, and hands while helping with fatigue and stiffness throughout your day.

While planning this event, the One Legal team has strategically placed each session of the conference at times where we hoped it would work for your week. Start your week with a focus on you, on what and how you want to accomplish. set the intention to learn. Then follow the flow all the way to the final meditation and beyond.
