As attorneys, constant stress is often a part of the job. So it’s fair to say that we were stressed before COVID-19. Now...no comment. But if we don’t effectively manage and cope with chronic stressors, this additional stress and uncertainty have the potential to cripple our productivity levels and make it physically, mentally, and emotionally impossible to effectively advocate for our clients and ourselves. It’s called burnout, and I can tell you from personal experience that you can’t simply “power thru.” Invest in your cognitive resilience now.

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. Harvard Medicine recommends it, ABA encourages it, and Keanu Reeves lives by it. 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.

This 30-min workshop 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"
  • Prioritize mindfulness in your professional practice and personal life

Take the first steps to safeguard your livelihood and your well-being.
