Corpus Wellness: The Path to Attorney Health

Robert S. Herbst, Esq.

 

Lawyers know about stress. In hunter-gatherer days, the “fight or flight” response served humans well when dealing with imminent threats. But what about stressful professions today when the pressure never ends? With prolonged exposure, this same fight or flight reflex can lead to depression and issues such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease. Some turn to drugs, alcohol or other means to try to cope. Hear how one New York lawyer-who also happens to be a 19-time world champion powerlifter and member of the AAU Strength Sports Hall of Fame-deals with the stresses of law.

 

Robert Herbst shares some practical tips on:

·         Using exercise to combat the negative health effects of stress

·         Making yourself your own client in committing to wellness

·         Healthful eating

·         Setting realistic goals
