Creative Stress Relief

Yoga. Mindfulness. Running. Gym.

There are as many ways to relieve stress are there are lawyers who experience stress on a daily basis. Hopefully, you have found a productive way of taking the edge off the day*, but, if not then this may be for you!

Adult coloring books have grown in popularity over the last few years and I thought I would try my hand at it. It took longer than expected but I thought that it was a lot of fun and the plus is that you could bring one of these books anywhere with you for some quick mindless fun while you’re going about your regular activities. If you haven’t tried it – I would recommend it. You can get books of all skill levels and there are even some apps that attempt to simulate the experience.

Have fun coloring!

*If you are having trouble coping with the stress of your job, there is help and you should not suffer alone. If you’re in Ontario, the Member Assistance Program provides counseling and other services for lawyers who are experiencing moments of crisis. Similar programs exist in virtually every state and province. Talk to someone. Get help.

On the inauguration…

Frodo: I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.

What will you do with the time you have?
