What if you could create a more sustainable, peaceful, and productive law practice in just 6-minutes a day?
Self-paced online course designed by a lawyer for lawyers.
Regular, deliberate practice over a sustained period of time is the key to better lawyering.
Are you feeling...
Do any of these thoughts sound familiar?
Is your solution to double down and do more? Work harder. Take on more obligations. Make more sacrifices. How’s it working for you?
I’ve been there… Losing sleep because you’re worried about your clients’ problems. Constantly trying to see around corners.
Want to know a secret? Being a lawyer doesn’t have to be this way.
I’m intimately familiar with the struggles of lawyering.
Seven years ago, I had constant, chronic anxiety and was diagnosed with social anxiety disorder. I started my career as an assistant state attorney in 2004, and have been practicing bankruptcy law since 2009.
I have seen first hand the power of adding a simple mindfulness and meditation practice to my daily life.
Here’s what I’ve learned in my journey from “the anxious lawyer” to “the mindful lawyer.” We were never TAUGHT healthy, sustainable behaviors that promote well-being.
Just like the practice of law, managing stress also requires PRACTICE.
The Science Behind Mindfulness
Results of the research study by the Department of Psychology & Brain and Mind Institute at The University of Western Ontario on impact of mindfulness and meditation practice for lawyers. (Read the full study.)
Mindful Pause: 31 Days of Bite-Sized Practices for Cultivating More Joy and Satisfaction
Spend just 6 minutes per day learning, practicing and implementing practical mindfulness and meditation tools for 31 days and see the impact it makes in your life.
Spend just 0.1 hour, every day to prioritize your own well-being. Get more of what you love out of being a lawyer while moving beyond the negativity and anxiety that has held you back.
Of all the 0.1 hours you dedicate to your clients, isn’t your well-being worth a single six-minute? If you’re anything like ‘the average attorney,’ you’ll bill about 150 hours working for clients each month and over 200 hours at work overall. That’s a lot of time dedicated to other people’s needs! You deserve a little time for yourself.
Set aside just .1 hours a day— a mere 1.5% of your working time — to pause, breathe and become a happier you.

About Jeena Cho
I teach lawyers to harness the power of mindfulness to decrease stress and anxiety while increasing focus and concentration. I have special insights into what lawyers go through because I am a lawyer.
I started my legal career as an assistant state attorney in 2004, handling domestic violence cases, and I have been practicing bankruptcy law at JC Law Group PC since 2009.
I’m the co-author of The Anxious Lawyer, the first book published by the American Bar Association on mindfulness and meditation. Today I speak, coach, and provide training to law firms on how lawyers can use mindfulness to boost productivity while enjoying a happier and more fulfilling professional and personal life.
