I think in our hearts we know this but its good to hear it from people trained in the field
Jamilee (Rochester Hills, MI)
I didn't realize how stressed out I was until I watched this. Good tips on taking care of oneself. All three instructors were enjoyable to watch and to listen to.

I wish I had taken a course like this years ago! I am definitely going to come back to it periodically for refreshers.

I think the presenters gave great ideas on how to manage stress on a daily basis. Not just for legal situations, but throughout life.

Lynne (Rutherford, NJ)
Kenneth (New York, NY)
It's good to know I'm not alone with stress. The techniques and reasons given by the presenters I hope will motivate me, particularly in the area of taking time to take care of myself, rather than work, without thinking I don't have the time to do both.

This was an excellent overview of the challenges of dealing with stress, which affects many attorneys. I also liked the 'hands on' experience of mindful meditation.
Lori (Riverside, CA)

Daniel Guerra's introduction to mindfulness meditation is worth the price of admission. If all attorneys incorporated this into their routines, oh what a wonderful profession it would be!

A lot of common sense but also a couple unexpected bits of wisdom in here.
