Activities

Smiles of women lawyers

One of the most attractive and enjoyable activities of the SLWLA is organizing the annual Local Trip and the Foreign Trip. This enhances the networking abilities among members, their families and their friends.

Taking a vacation may not only make you happy, but increase your job performance. Rest, relaxation, and stress reduction are very important for people's well-being and health. This can be accomplished through daily activities, such as exercise and meditation, but vacation is an important part of this as well and it decreased risk of heart disease and improved reaction times as some of the benefits from taking some time off. Our mind is very powerful and can help with healing, so a rested, relaxed mind is able to help the body heal better.
