I hear you. I know that sick pit-of-the-stomach feeling when you see a new email alert. It’s awful. Know that you are not alone. ❤️

This advice doesn’t help for the never ending work, but I used the Outlook rules feature to sort nonwork emails (think recruiters, news, CLE alerts) into a separate folder and don’t get a notification for them. Reducing the number of notifications I get has somehow reduced my visceral reaction every time I get an alert on my phone for a work email and made me a lot less anxious.
