In this episode, I am excited to have Emily Markos on to talk about fighting anxiety and finding peace through mindfulness.

Emily graduated from Rutgers Camden School of Law in 2010. After graduation she clerked in the US District Court in Pennsylvania, and then spent 6 years as a general commercial civil litigator. In 2014 she became a mom, and in 2017 she left private practice to work for the Social Security Administration. She has recently incorporated a mindfulness practice in her life through yoga, and has found a lot of peace and happiness through that practice.


Topics Covered

  • Yoga as a mindfulness practice, some misconceptions about yoga, and what to look for if you want to try yoga or if you are looking to deepen your existing practice.
  • Understanding EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) and how it is used to help process and reprogram trauma.
  • Some of the common causes of anxiety in lawyers, and discussion on coping skills that can be developed to manage that anxiety and find peace.
  • Postpartum depression and anxiety, erasing the stigma and being open about it.
  • Tips and suggestions to make time for things as a mom and lawyer.
