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.

Hey, I had an interesting question that I wanted to run by the women in consulting: my mentor (director, male) advised leveraging being a woman as a diversity hire to get a better internal referrals from higher up. He said big 4 offers a significantly higher bonus for associate and senior associate experienced hire diversity roles. Is this accurate? Are women still diversity hires? And if that is the case, how would I even navigate that?
