What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too
I see so many friends going on vacations, traveling via air, car, train, etc. this includes within the country and abroad. Am I stupid for not going anywhere since Feb 2020??? What information about COVID have I missed? I know precautions are choices taken by individuals but how do I justify missing out on fun when so many folks are planning vacations and traveling freely? Thoughts??
I work in a group that has had to come in to the office regularly during COVID (lots of work with original documents and wet ink signatures). It’s real estate and title companies still require wet ink documents. One junior has refused to come in because he says he’s concerned about COVID. We all wear masks, close our doors, and socially distance. We’ve all had to pick up the slack for him. Just found out he’s taking his second vacation during COVID and visiting family in FL. I could scream.

Heya!!! I’m interviewing next week for a Sr Account Manager role @ a digital mkt agency. The interviewer asked me to send in my salary expectation before we talk. This is a little bit challenging to me. Talk numbers. The position ask for at least 4 years experience. I have 6. I want to ask for a fair amount because I do think I can bring much value to the company. Also don’t want to compromise just because I’m out of work at the moment. Do you guys have a suggestion ? TIA!!!
