Might be the wrong bowl but finding it extremely difficult to focus on work post busy season. It’s been 2 weeks since we filed and I’m still taking lots of naps and breaks (I’m talking like 3-4 cumulative hrs worked during the day). Idk if I’m taking longer to recover from busy season bc I’m getting old or if I’m over public accounting (but then where do i go). Tried to schedule time with a therapist but everyone has a months-long waitlist so next step might be trying to find a life/career coach

Idk if i should bring it up with my PML/company assigned mentor but I’m concerned for myself that i will get dinged for this and lose my job. Also, pto is already booked the rest of the year for doctors, (post vaccine) events/obligations and a handful for emergencies so it’s not like i can easily take weeks of time off immediately

Are you still meeting your deadlines and staying on top of work? If you have nothing else to do, why not enjoy the downtime?

I used to feel self-conscious like this as a senior and associate all the time but as long as you are reachable when needed and get your work done on time, no one really cares. And you can bet others are doing the same as you.

Work is being done but slowly/not efficiently and it’s a case of “idk what idk so what happens if i miss something?”

Apologies if this has been asked before but does anyone have tips for getting out of bed on weekday mornings? I set my alarm early but find myself intentionally sleeping in until 9am or later just because I dread the work day. I get away with it since I usually don’t have morning meetings but I think it’s depression/anxiety related since it doesn’t happen on weekends? (I go to bed quite early so I’m averaging around 11-12 hours of sleep a day)
