Lawyers are well-known for not paying enough attention to our mental health and ultimately getting ourselves in trouble as a result.  But all the talk about taking care of ourselves can sometimes seem like noise and we don’t actually accomplish doing anything any better.  How do we make self-care as routine as brushing our teeth?

In this episode, Megan offers up some suggestions beyond yoga and meditation.

Some outside-the-box mental health tips: 

1) Do something that sounds crazy to you

2) Meditate, but not just sitting still

3) Give yourself a grand gesture

4) Embrace the outdoors

5) Get perspective in a cemetery or historic site

6) Get lost in time
