I am currently on maternity leave. I missed utilization targets because of travel restrictions and was not rated highly for my performance last year. I am concerned I could be laid off when I return or before - my federal and state protection for pregnancy has ended. This is making me very anxious and not letting me enjoy my bonding time with my little one. Any advice on how I can change my mindset or be more calm is much appreciated. Thanks!!

Month 5 of 20/4 intermittent fasting. Down 25 pounds to ~170 lbs (stabilized there) M/53. WFH was hard but keeping fridge and cupboards from temptations (and still no booze for three months) has helped. It can be done--miss ice cream! but eating healthy in the 4-hour window. Two cups of black coffee/lots of water btw 9 pm and 5 pm. Doable folks. Don't give up. But am not exercising from home (just long walks 2x a week) due to intense work. Need to but hard to get back on exercise saddle.

My job search has been discouraging, and this position would be a dream, so any feedback will be much appreciated.
Any thoughts on Riveron? Seems like their infrastructure is a few years behind but they preach WLB and better bonus structure. How much % increase should I be looking for in order to hop over to a boutique? Currently an M1 making 125k and believe I'm severely underpaid.
