The Art Of Well Being

Taken from the concept of the most popular course by far in the 300 plus year history of Yale, I offer a challenging but familiar concept to the well-being of every person in the legal profession. Trying such tips as kindness, expressing gratitude, enjoying what you have accomplished, exercise, taking time off and learning how to improve the quality of your life and career will hopefully make you better at what you do and enjoy it more. Here are the best thoughts taken from so many others as to how to accomplish that. A totally inter-active three hours will make you think, reflect and when you are done, smile.
