The beginning of the year is a time of reflection for many of us. We reflect on what we want to achieve—and even more basically, who we want to be—in the year ahead. Common resolutions, unsurprisingly, include: taking better care of one’s health (exercising more, eating better, losing weight, quitting smoking, and drinking less), spending less/saving more money, spending more time with family and friends, finding another job or gaining a new skill/hobby, and enjoying life to the fullest.1

For us labor and employment lawyers, the goals of better self-care and making life more meaningful are particularly important. Our 2016 Section-wide survey found that while 85% of us are satisfied with our careers, a stunning 60% report suffering anxiety or depression in a typical month, and 30% feel that our stress levels are unhealthy.2 In addition, more than 60% of Section members also direct their aspirations outward, wishing to do more to help people who really need it.3
