Been living this for years. Life isn’t just about the work. Try to enjoy the location you work in too. Make friends, volunteer, or go sightseeing. Or use your evenings for professional development like studying for certifications, doing online courses.

Keep work at work. Look up what is ruminating (there are some good ted talks on this) and try not to do it. Maximize your weekend enjoyment by doing whatever gives you energy and makes you feel refreshed - for me, it's getting enough sleep, a date with the husband where we DON'T TALK ABOUT WORK, and spending time with my niece and sisters.

Start a count down until the project ends, try and line up a new project, give yourself a small weekly treat every Thursday at the airport. If finances aren’t a negative stress point, check your savings/investment accounts and see what you can do to optimize (relatively speaking given the market circumstances). For me, looking at those numbers really helps when I’m hating my job.

Help me ask for a raise in my upcoming performance review? In sum, my company’s HQ is in Texas and I feel I’m being paid a Texas wage when I live in Los Angeles (the role is remote). We do have a San Francisco office and I want to ask my boss to match me what staff are making there. As that’s more comparable. Based off of Glassdoor, my salary matches Texas’s exactly and SF has the same role at 10k more. Should I show him the Glassdoor page? Don’t want to come off too strong. Please advise
