Is there anyone here who changed jobs for mental health reasons (or mental health was at least a driver)? Did better WLB actually help?

Only 6 months in to my current job yet already looking for a switch for this exact reason. Happy to hear it does work for some because my mental health is deteriorating quickly.

Yes!! I left Big4 for an industry job for better WLB and better mental health. Three and a half years later, I can confirm that it was the best thing I ever did. I have improved my marriage because I have more time with my husband. I have lost weight because I eat better and exercise more. I have more free time and read more for pleasure. You have to find the right job and make sure that it meets your needs financially and career-wise. But, mentally I am so, so glad I did it!!

I am a lawyer who worked in tax in Big4. Now I work in a Fortune 100 company in their tax department. I do pretty much the same kind of tax work as Big4 but without all the admin, pressure to sell work / business development that is required at the SM level and above, and without utilization goals. Without all the extra work on top, I have great WLB and focus in on what I like to do which is tax work.

Who are these people responding to surveys asking for full time return to office? Seems like every firm is now citing these surveys and how in office work leads to better productivity and mental health? No, spending 1 - 2 hours a day commuting, waking up earlier and sleeping early, displacing actual mental health boosting events like the gym with being stuck in traffic, and additional work that comes from being in the office does NOT boost my mental health.

I worked at a large insurance defense firm for 4 years out of law school. I really enjoyed the work itself, but the hour expectations kept increasing and I was getting burnt out. I decided to try a new type of law and have been at the new firm 3 months. I have way less responsibilities and none of my own cases. I’m worried this was a wrong move/too far of a step backwards. I know I don’t see myself here long term, but I’m not sure how long I need to stay to avoid looking like a job hopper—help!
