The speaker was good at breaking down the stresses a lawyer encounters and how we as lawyers have internal dialogues with ourselves in which we have a tendency to be critical of ourselves, or, as he put it, cognitively distort reality. The list of counter=measures he provides are refreshingly simplistic (e.g., stay in the moment, eat well, exercise, get reasonable sleep, spend time with friends and family, take breaks, plan vacations, think more of the positive aspects of our profession and our good intentions, get help if you need it, etc.). The overall presentation was "down to earth" and thus easy to digest. The books he spoke of all sound like good reads. Very personable guy!
