Lawyers Living Well
a compilation of resources to help attorneys find a work-life balance focusing on mindfulness, fitness, and overall wellness.

Being a lawyer is a high-stress job. Our focus is always on the client’s problems and the “to do” list is ever growing.  However, in addition to serving our clients, we must also pay attention to our own mental, emotional, and physical health. There are many available resources to assist attorneys in doing just that.
