Practicing law can be stressful, so it is important to take time to unwind and think of your well-being.

Long hours, heavy workloads, and client relations can impact practitioners in many ways. That’s why this month’s issue of the Texas Bar Journal focuses on wellness and well-being in the practice of law and provides insights and resources for attorneys to deal with pressures of the job.

In that spirit, we are re-launching a successful photo contest, #LawyerVacay. With summer here, we want to see how you’re taking a break from the law and reenergizing—whether it’s a day at the beach, an adventurous hike, cycling (or traveling on one of those motorized scooters) around the city, or simply enjoying a staycation.

Share your vacation photos with the State Bar of Texas (@statebaroftexas) via Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using the hashtag #LawyerVacay. Not on social media? You can also email them to

Some of our favorite pics will be featured on the Texas Bar Blog and our social media accounts.

According to a recent study, over 50 percent of American workers don’t take advantage of their vacation time. Use yours and maximize your well-being. We can’t way to see how you relax!
