The Wisconsin Bar Talks Happiness

In the December issue of Wisconsin Lawyer from the State Bar of Wisconsin, the article “5 Strategies to Make Your Work More Meaningful” offers just that, but also elaborates on why meaningful work is important to begin with. It explains that adults with goals such as personal growth, close relationships, community involvement or physical health report higher levels of satisfaction and lower levels of anxiety and depression than those with aspirations such as money, fame or image.

Also from the State Bar of Wisconsin this month is an Inside Track article (and video) titled, “Lawyers and Happiness: It Lands On You.” In it, Dr. Gregory Van Rybroek, a psychologist, attorney and member of the Wisconsin Lawyers Assistance Program (WisLAP) Committee, explains that despite the complexities of achieving happiness, there are ways we can improve our outlook on life. The article also features a sidebar dedicated to additional readings about what makes lawyers happy.
