Balance Managing Self Wellness

Quick recipe for shifting mental gears

Written by Allison Wolf

This week at Attorney With A Life the focus was on what to do when our friends are troubled or when we are troubled.

Ultimately every day things go sideways.  A partner throws a hissy fit.  A colleague takes credit for your brilliant idea. The legal assistant puts the wrong address on the invitation to a client  and the envelope ends up back on your desk “return to sender”.

Do you roll with it or obsess about it? This makes all the difference.

In keeping with this theme we are ending the week  with a link to a classic blog post by Jeena Cho titled: “What To Do When Everything Sucks“.

Because sometimes it really does seem like everything sucks!  And on this Friday in August, the sun is shining, and there is a park bench out there calling for you to take a moment to rest and let it go.
