I think I have post busy- season depression. Anyone else feel this way? I know I should be happy, but I'm having a hard time finding purpose in things.

It's Stockholm syndrome, you're so used to busy season that when u are free you are not sure how to experience life. I get that way sometimes too

Also try to not just fill the time with Netflix and/or video game binges. They're fun but should be limited to maybe one evening a week and a morning on the weekends (or whatever time slot works for you, just not every day). Do stuff that's fulfilling and engaging. Cook, clean, exercise, meet people, call a family member you don't get to chat with much and catch up, anything. I say this for myself as much as I do for others :)

Hang with friends. Rekindle an old hobby. Leave work before 5:00. Just a few things I do to get my mindset right after busy season.

I was going to post something similar in terms of Stockholm syndrome! That's exactly what it is! I am experiencing the same thing, and left work early today but ended up coming home and taking a nap. Smh. It's difficult getting back into the groove of life and what it means outside of work. Like everyone else said in this thread, try your best to do what you love. I know it's easier said then done, but you can do it! It takes one step at a time. Tomorrow I am working from home, but I will be doing other things, such as playing the guitar, cleaning, and setting some goals. I am here to encourage that there's more to life then work. And like @taxmanager1 said, this is advice to myself as well.

My mom's cleaning lady mouths off to me and my mom refuses to fire her when I literally said I would do the cleaning myself/help her find someone new. We had another cleaning lady who stole jewelry from our house and my mom initially sided with her when until I proved that she had stolen it. You'd think she would learn a lesson by now.

HR and leadership denied my request for our company’s cell phone reimbursement ($60, but it’s still something) because they came to a conclusion that those who aren’t directors don’t use their phone enough for work purposes to warrant it. So I’m about to delete my work email, Zoom, Slack, etc. from my phone. Guess if they need to get ahold of me, they have to wait until I get on my computer.
