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 can not handle stress at all. I have developed some disorders due to stress, curious to know what others do here.

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 try to meditate on a regular basis. I find this grounds me and helps me let go of things that are weighing on me. Exercise is also helpful for releasing tension.

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.

For fellow locally staffed consultants , do you want to go back to the office after quarantine is over? I don’t . Personally the 1.5 hours I save daily commuting is worth it. I’ll add though that previous to this situation, I’m at a very laid back long term client and my manager doesn’t care as long as we show up to the office three times a week. So I may be slightly bias towards WFH. Thoughts?

I’ve been out of work for a significant amount of time due to Covid decimating my industry. Lots of interviews and a few final rounds. Today I finally got an offer. Pay is the best yet and team seems great. I just can’t help but feel a little disappointed bc it’s not the industry I was in/am passionate about/reason I went to law school. Is one bird in hand really better than two in the bush? Anyone have a similar situation? I’m worried about regret & giving up on my dreams.
