Speak up
Set boundaries
Understand your priorities

This may also be unconventional but instead of making yourself the go-to person or the one that everyone look up to or everyone rely on at your job (for job security, for ego or for whatever other reasons), make yourself redundant. Make sure others can step in anytime if you were hit by a bus.

More so now that I have to manage others. Take time off as you need to recharge, even if just an afternoon. Block off time on your schedule to get priority work done

Take some time off!

This is almost worse for me me because I can't relax even when it's slow because I am dreading some sudden downpour of work and deadlines
