In this episode, I am excited to have Alexis Robertson on to talk about the balance of self-care: remaining dutiful to responsibilities without martyring yourself for your work.

Alexis is a lawyer turned Diversity and Inclusion professional. She attended the University of Michigan law school and practiced for 7 ½ years at Kirkland & Ellis and Seyfarth Shaw, before leaving practice to become a legal recruiter and subsequently a Diversity and Inclusion professional at Baker & McKenzie. Outside of work, if Alexis isn't listening to a podcast or wrangling her two sons, she can probably be found at her local pilates studio.


Topics Covered

  • How big firm lawyers are like pro-athletes and as such, we have to focus on our personal health to perform at our peak.
  • The benefits of receiving formal instruction in meditation (versus self-guided), and the importance of finding a way to meditate that is right for you.
  • The role of meditation/self-care when you have children, and how it helps with combating the knee-jerk reactive mind in stressful situations.
  • Why meditation/mindset is just as important as physical fitness and nutrition.
