As legal professionals, constant stress is often a part of the job. If we don’t effectively manage chronic stress, however, it has the potential to cripple our productivity levels and make it physically, mentally, and emotionally impossible to effectively advocate for our clients and ourselves. Further, we run the risk of running afoul of the rules of professional conduct. Instituting even 1 or 2 minutes of meditation and mindfulness into our daily routines can have immediate and far-reaching benefits in our professional and personal lives. Become your best self now. Join us as we demystify meditation and focus on the basics of mindfulness: what it is and isn’t, how to do it, and how to maximize its benefits. We will delve into specific methods of integrating mindfulness into your day-to-day law practice.

This 60-min session will empower you to:

• Protect yourself from burnout
• Improve focus and boost your overall productivity and efficiency
• Curb anxiety and stress thru quick, effective “spot treatments”
• Use mindfulness to enhance ethical decision-making and conflict resolution
