Some great suggestions already here around meditating and stretching. Only thing I would say is what are your values and are you doing anything that are against that? It was a question I was asked when I was feeling down so thought I share it. Sending positive vibes! Cheers

Feel the same and also rethinking my path in life.

Imposter Syndrome: I was hired even though I felt unqualified. I now realized the people that hired me thought I was senior at my previous job when I wasn’t... I never lied about anything during my interview and talked about my duties. I only realized this after I got hired and the team introduced me saying all these fabulous “senior” things that I did - which is true (more like acting senior duties) 😅 what do i do!! Do I tell them I wasn’t a senior? I’m not behind on my work or anything
