We are not just WFH, we are working remote during a pandemic. Not like we can meet our friends at a bar after work to unwind. You are not alone and this is def a normal emotion right now.

It’s common. These are trying times for everyone. Can you do something fun to recharge? Comedy show? Paint nails crazy color? Plan amazing trip for 2023? Zoom with a child niece or nephew ( not fun for everyone I realize). Plant seeds in empty egg carton? Sunflowers grow well, micro greens grow fast.

By close of eyes is not a reasonable time for any deliverable to be due. You work from home not 24/7. Let’s normalize standard working hours; if work isn’t done within eight to nine hours in day then it’s time for evaluate systems, if all those Zoom calls were necessary and staff utilization.
