How much phone screen time do you average per day, how much sleep, and how much exercise do you get and are you vitamin d deficient?

Thank you so much!

Have you taken any time off? If at all feasible I would try and take a week to yourself to unplug. Seems like a lot of us are burned out due to covid/wfh anxiety and malaise

A week is not feasible. I’ve taken a Friday off here and there but it hasn’t felt like enough to do the trick. And when I take a day off I’m expected to make it up so it doesn’t really help. Think I’m going to follow the advice of the next comment in order to get the time I need to get healthy again. Definitely think the covid/wfh and my personal health issues has made this a more difficult time than ever for me.

In 1984, at a firm where 2,400 per year let you keep your job. Different world today. # of hours don’t matter, what is realization?? You can bill for 2200 but if client only pays 2.000 = your bottom line suffers.

like

And thankfully it has changed because that’s not a healthy or sustainable lifestyle for the vast majority of people. And it shouldn’t be applauded.

We don’t really have a billing requirement. We have a collection benchmark to meet. I routinely need to bill 180 to 200 hours a month to meet collections. Great thing is that I have plenty of billable work.
