  1. Great post. Perfectionism helps lawyers succeed in practice because the profession is excessively detail-oriented. All of us have a tendency to think about other stuff no matter what we’re doing. But it’s counterproductive and prevents you from enjoying life if you’re doing something pleasurable—or even if you’re doing something mundane that can be pleasurable, like taking a shower. You should stop and really feel the water instead of thinking about what you need to do when you get out. When you’re walking down the street, enjoy it. Smell the air, look at the surroundings instead of thinking about where you’re on your way to. Mindfulness is more than just meditation. It’s a whole different way of thinking.

  2. Nice content posted here. Stress is a fact of life for all of us, and criminal defense lawyers are certainly no exception. Stressful events can vary greatly in severity, but they activate a series of common biological and behavioral responses that help us cope with the situation. While these changes are adaptive in the short-term, prolonged stress can lead to physical and mental illness.
