I’m taking a month off before moving to an in house role. Have become very burned out after years in private practice. Looking for advice on what others have found helps restore/relieve the burnout after years of grinding. I would like to hit the ground refreshed for my new role. Any tips greatly appreciated!

Congrats!! Do whatever makes you happy. Personally, I took a 7 week break before lateraling. Spent ~2 weeks in the aggregate traveling - part to see friends/family but also several days on a “personal retreat” of sorts (stayed at a quiet hostel in a national park-type environment, hiked, read, etc). I also started seeing a therapist and did a lot of yoga. Checked out a ton of library books - like would just go to the library and grab whatever looked interesting - and caught up on projects around the house. It was also the holidays so I did a lot of fun baking. My husband is on a similar break now and has plans to build a wood shop and work out/get back in shape.

Totally anecdotal, but it seems like making plans is better than taking the whole time to relax at home. I think it is too much of a change to go from 110% to pure leisure unless you have a long break to acclimate.

Friend of mine was supposed to receive an offer (told verbally) from Deloitte and then just found out they are pausing on hiring the role. How common is that? Seems wildly unprofessional that none of the partners called and instead it was the recruiter conveying that news. At McKinsey, if that happened, the head of the practice or the office would personally make the phone call at the very least.
