Half day off if I feel stressed in the middle of the day or sick leave, unless there are critical deliverables. Idc what everyone would say but my mental health is at the most priority.

I generally go for long walk and spend time with myself. Retrospect to see what is the root cause, what percentage of things I am assuming would actually materialize(generally <10% of fears would ever come true) and then create a plan for working out of firefighting mode. In Amazon's terms, I say to myself "This is day 1, let's reset and get control back".

I have to say I have been very mad at managing stress. Meditation has helped, but I'm also trying to take out 5-10 minutes at night before going to bed to write my thoughts/stresses/to dos for tomorrow. Feels better when you go to bed as you don't have the circle of thoughts going over and over about everything you didn't get done

I use mantra meditation practice.

Nothing new here I guess, but still putting it out there... I am an educated, smart, successful woman.

Kids are not learning anything new, house is a mess, unlimited personal projects on hold, personal grooming is not even on the agenda and to make it all worse, have a personal goal of weight loss but am actively working against it.

Hi folks! I’m close to 2 years at Amazon, been in tech sales for 6 years, and recently moved to a marketing position in events. I’m grateful for the opportunity to do something outside of sales, but burnout is pretty unavoidable at AWS. I’m curious if y’all have suggestions of other companies I should consider moving to in 6 months. Comp, WLB and inclusive culture are my top ideals. I’ve thought a lot ab Google, was offered a position at Hubspot but comp wasn’t enough. Please feel free to DM!
