Living Better

Change is good | Step out of Your Rut | Mindfulness helps

Change is good and doing something different can make the week better.  I have a tendency to get stuck in the same rut when I feel like time has gotten away from me.  My usual process is to work all week, even when I get home, and then vegetate as much as possible on the weekend.  Hulu and my chair in the study become my best friends.

Ways to Ease Stress | Work on Yourself Daily | Mindfulness is Key

We all need that Happy Place in these busy times! I have been working on my mindset and how I react to things every day.  As a Type A personality, I do not do well ifRead More →

We are all a work in progress.  I know that I talk a lot about changing your mindset, but I truly believe that we can feel better!  As we get older, we start to get settled into our “place” in life. Sometimes, we want to make changes, but don’t know where to start.  We can be happy, but still looking to make changes, which can be scary and exciting at the same time. I have been practicing law for 22 years and have teenagers, but felt late last year that I was missing something. I love to talk to people and decided to start thisRead More →
