Meditation has helped me a lot with handling stress


Starting a new project and a bit jittery.


I was. Try closing your eyes and just thinking about your life and big picture goals and where you are doing well and where you could improve (basically meditate). I do that on my flights and Uber rides now and it does wonders. Also helps me prioritize my work for the week


Yes! It's common and normal, and don't add to it by thinking something is wrong with you.

Normal. Start a wellness routine or daily walk

Anyone else get terrible sick after leaving a toxic job? I left my old job earlier this year. Prior to me leaving, I had been dealing with some stomach issues, mainly due to stress, not eating regularly or balanced. I started my new job in the Spring and this summer, my stomach issue flared up pretty severely. Bad enough that I’m on multiple meds and taken so much time off of work being sick. I guess my stomach was like “let’s wait until she finds a safe work environment and then get sick.”


I’m writing a letter of resignation. Should I mention I’m leaving due to lack of growth opportunities and mistreatment (racial discrimination and bullying from Directors and supervisors) or should I wait until the exit interview to mention. Grateful to have had a job but happy to be moving on to something better and don’t want to burn bridges.
