All I really do outside of work is exercise (a lot) and smoke weed (also a lot)

Been thinking about this a lot. The only solution I’m coming up with is to outsource food and chores. I think the extra headspace would be super beneficial. Automate everything else so you can focus in what matters, I guess? I dunno. I struggle too.

I feel you, OP. Sleep is my only non-work activity.

I have a lot of personal and I feel like I want to be busier for my career. When I was super busy with work, I wanted more personal time for self-development. There is just no winning…

Does anyone have a spouse with a mental illness? I struggle with severe depression myself, so I’m not unfamiliar with the pain and with how broken mental health care is in the US.

I see plenty of people go for a walk during the day, yet I hardly see any of my EY teammates appear “away” for 15/20+ minutes. I recognize that not everyone is in consulting, but can’t imagine that *none* of those walking are. Asking as a relative newcomer to the workforce: Is it acceptable to be away from work for more than just a few minutes, regardless of industry? If so, how can I feel comfortable stepping away to prioritize my health and well-being when so few of my teammates do so?

Talk to your doctor and do research. You never know what’s going on inside your brain.

Has anyone ever shit their pants at work or on the way to/from work? I’ll go first... Was on my way to my buddy’s place for post-work dranks when I got the sudden urge to poo. Stuck in rush hour traffic I started sweating. Fast food places were not allowing people inside (only drive thru during peak covid) so I drove around looking for bush to shit in. Found a house with no lights on and nice bushes out front and pulled over. (Cont’d in comments)
