On health as an investment banker: When it's a little lighter at work, I find I'm still exhausted because I'm still very tense/anxious and unable to actually get myself to rest properly. I'm am as tired on my light weeks as I am when I'm actually grinding all day and night. Advice on navigating this? Also a first year analyst so don't expect I'll have ANY ability to push back 😂

I’ve noticed lately that a LOT of my (current and past) coworkers are diagnosed with ADHD. Has anyone else seen this? Are your teams an open place to discuss mental health?

Honest question: Why most Pharma folks are afraid of using humor or other emotions to sell a brand benefit? This is my second healthcare agency and it’s the same thing. Boring, flat, and serious. I wish it was more creative.

How difficult is it to start a solo firm? I’m a first year attorney working in insurance defense in Florida. I love my firm and the mentoring I’m receiving and I’m definitely not looking to move anytime soon, but I would love to start my own firm once I feel competent. Maybe in a few years. Any advice for planning? Thanks!
I often run into a former 6th grade (Health) student in the halls as I move every period to a new location to teach. This year for me has been compounded with the movement and teaching 4 different classes in a 5 period teaching day. This student just makes my day. Smiling and happy to see me and saying hello. Carrying a short discussion an elbow bump and away he goes. A bright ray of sunshine in my day. I choose the positive.... I’m thankful for students brighten my day 🔆

It’s been a couple weeks since I turned in my resignation leaving tax and busy seasons forever. For 3 months my hair was falling out in clumps. There were tumbleweeds of hair all over my house. Since I’ve left I have not shed one strand of hair. Coincidence? I think not. I’m scared I am now in school starting a new career and being a poor student again. When I have doubts I think about my hair and my health and think I made the right decision.
So how does everyone feel about burn out being a mental health diagnosis by the WHO. This is basically everyone I know I’m audit in the first few months of the year
