#1 you should not skip meals because of work. #2 regardless where you work you generally should be available when you teams and clients need you within reason. #3 as long as you get your work done you should have enough flexibility when you WFM to take breaks when you need them including running errands, taking a short nap, playing with your kids or dog, or whatever else makes your day better.

I give myself a break if I WFH

Yes

2-3 hour lunches every time, which is 2-3x/wk.

Yes, but sometimes I use it to workout or I take it later in the day.

I’m working in-house…no timesheets, title I asked for, good salary (6 figures), remote, pretty much done at 5p. No, the work isn’t riveting, but that’s what side projects are for! Stick it out until I get restless, but nice to stop hustling so hard. (Accepting that I may never get a Lion.)

What is it about law that glorifies morning people so much? I am NOT one and wfh has been so great for me in terms of being able to set my own schedule, but now that we’re starting to go back to the office I’ve noticed some pointed comments about people not being in by 8am. I bill as much (generally more) than other associates, so why does it matter if I start at 9 and work late?? I’m finding it hard to go back to the arbitrary-feeling 8am office start when I know I’m not going to be productive.
