I use to wake up from panicked dreams that a deliverable was late, forgotten, etc. Would freak out thinking an email was forgotten or came in after sleeping, instantly check my phone. Then I realized, nothing we do is that important and life is FAR too short to be a slave to this job. It's a job for me, not a career. Not amount of money you make right now, no matter how nice, is worth having your life consumed. Because if you let it, the job will consume your life.

By my second year I gave less fucks and was always last to show up in the morning. But still got all next level. Just be present when you are, and when you get out, remind yourself that it's just a job and no one will die if you aren't around.

You just have to prioritize yourself sometimes. It's easy to get caught up in this job, even unwillingly. Try not to worry and do things in your off time to occupy your mind. Make sure they are things you enjoy so you can have some balance.

V-E-G-A-S or N-O-L-A. Go forget about who you are for a few days. Find a fascinating person of the opposite (or same) sex and totally lie about who you are.

Had the same issue, totally disappeared after I hit the 2 year mark and realized it would be a blessing in disguise if I got "counseled out" - a certain degree of apathy has the potential to make you way better at your job
