It’s the week of Thanksgiving here in the United States, so “Happy Thanksgiving” if you are based in the US!
Of course, Thanksgiving makes me think of “giving thanks” (of course!) which brings up the idea of gratitude.
As a lawyer or legal...
Buckle up, it’s here - the holiday season! For our Canadian friends, Thanksgiving is already in the rearview mirror, and for those of us in the United States, it’s just three weeks away. That’s not to mention the long list of winter holidays between now and January.
One week ago today, my husband and I were just getting back from a few days spent in Austin, Texas with two of our dear friends from college.
Getting away isn’t easy for us. Between our full-time work and two kids still at home, it’s pretty challenging to find coverage for our...
First, I want to tell you how grateful I am that you are a part of this community.
I don’t take your time or attention for granted at all, and I work each week to write things that I hope will be meaningful, impactful, and actionable for you in some way.
This week, I’m going to...
Sometimes we all need a little boost, especially this time of year.
It seems like most people are dealing with a host of demands right now:
Welcoming new students or associates
Planning fall programming
Preparing for 2024 budgets
New billing years around the corner
Fall or annual...
In our home, there’s one more weekend before the start of the school year (Minnesota schools typically start after Labor Day; I know many of your schools are already back in session.)
That means a few more late nights watching our favorite streaming shows with our teenagers.
Happy Self-Care Day!
You read that right - July 24 is Self-Care Day. Why July 24? Because self-care is important 24/7 (or 7/24).
What is self-care, and why is it so important for your health? “Self-care is not synonymous with self-indulgence or being selfish. Self-care...
I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
If you have kids and they are out of school, I hope your summer is off to a great start. I know (from years of personal experience) that this can be a particularly crazy time of year, and I hope that you are walking through it as gracefully as...
Happy May 1! It’s incredible that May is already here, and - with it - Mental Health Awareness Month.
And not only that, this week, May 1 - May 5, is Well-Being Week in Law. Every year, the first week of May is designated “Well-Being Week in Law” (WWIL), and many...
I have to admit, I have never heard of it until someone I follow posted:
April 26 is “Get Organized Day”!
What does being organized have to do with your well-being? More than you know!
Research shows that physical clutter can cause stress, feelings of overwhelm, anxiety, depression,...
This week, I want to introduce you to the four main components of emotional intelligence. This is a topic that's been coming up so much in my coaching and speaking work, so I wanted to share the nuts and bolts with you.
I'm guessing you might have heard of emotional intelligence before, but I...
Last week, I had the stomach flu.
I haven't had a stomach bug in the longest time, and it laid me flat.
I had forgotten how horrible the stomach flu feels. It's like childbirth - you forget how awful the pain is once it has passed. Same with the flu you know it stinks, but you forget...
