I’m often a little anxious about my legal work and am wondering if there is a quick-fix I can try?

Q: I’m often a little anxious about my legal work and am wondering if there is a quick-fix I can try?
A: Believe it or not, you can try reverting back to childhood by getting out crayons and downloading from the Internet at no cost something called mandalas. There is research showing that structured coloring of a reasonably complex geometric pattern therapeutically benefits the reduction of anxiety. Plus, you can do it anywhere, anytime, and even for short periods, and see if it works for you.  
You can also look into more widely-used no-cost approaches to stress relief like meditating in the morning, walking at lunchtime, or watching a comedy on TV in the evening. The important thing is to acknowledge the challenge, which you have done, and not to give up on finding solutions you can sustain because you enjoy and can fit them into your busy schedule.
