Highlights from 50 Lessons for Happy Lawyers [Webinar]

This article is for informational purposes only. It is not intended to be used in place of professional or legal advice in any way. Lawyers, law students, judges, and other legal professionals in Massachusetts can find more on scheduling a Free & Confidential consultation with a law practice advisor here.

Get practical, small steps you can take to improve your mood as a lawyer from Nora Riva Bergman and Chelsy Castro in this 29-minute installment of Webinars for Busy Lawyers.

Join authors of the new book 50 Lessons for Happy Lawyers, as they share research-based strategies that will help you increase your personal and professional happiness.

As well-being has grown in popularity, we have more than enough options to fill our toolboxes — and for busy lawyers, it helps to start with practical and actionable tools. The lessons in this book — written by lawyers for lawyers — will show you how to take small steps each day to boost your wellness, well-being, and resilience to live a happier, healthier life.

Over 20 minutes of Q&A from the live program are included in the recording.




Find the exercise on My Great Life (here), mentioned during the webinar Q&A. It speaks to goal setting, but it requires some deep thinking to get clarity around those goals. Ideally, it should be completed from left to right – starting with the big picture of your life and working down to what you are going to DO in the next 90 days to achieve those things. Nora tells her clients to think of it as a brainstorming tool – you don’t need to fill in every box.



Nora Rive Bergman has kindly curated her Top Ten Titles for Your Happiness Bookshelf (here) in response to a popular live webinar request.
