LawCare’s Coordinator for Ireland, Mary Jackson, participated on the panel of speakers at the Law Society of Ireland FINUAS Network conference, Professional Wellbeing For A Successful Practice. The event took place in Cork on 4 October, in The Kingsley Hotel.
The conference included three workshops: Less Stress More Joy from Walt Hampton, JD/ Executive Coach; What makes me tick? from Antoinette Moriarty, MSc MIAHIP, and The Enjoyable Lightness of Being – Craic Therapy! from Sean O’Tarpaigh, MSc MIAHIP. Ms Jackson gave an overview of LawCare’s work, focussing on the mental health aspects of wellbeing.
“Everyone went away armed with ideas for living better and more mindfully,” says Ms Jackson. “Many had plans to take themselves less seriously, to block out time for themselves, and to learn how to better manage the e-invasion.
“I particularly like this quote from Sean O’Tarpaigh’s hand-out: ‘It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly, my friend, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them’.”
