This whole waking up at 2:30 am with impending anxiety, and thought of work papers, really must stop. At this point I'm wide awake 👀

Why did you go to sleep? There's work to be done!
LOL, jk. Find your happy place. There's more to life than money and a career. Find those things that really matter to you and remind yourself of it when the stress gets bad.

Sorry to hear this. When I'm having anxiety, a five minute attempt at meditation always helps. I'm not good at meditation but the attempt and focus on emptying my mind helps a lot. Try it out.

Accept the anxiety and tell yourself it’s natural to be anxious! Be kind to yourself, think of the universe and remind yourself that there’s more to life than your work. You are doing the best you can and that should be good enough for you. It’s not easy to convince yourself the first time around, but it does get easier over time!

This may be TMI but hugging my pillow as I sleep has significantly helped me. I don’t wake up earlier than I need to or in the middle of the night anymore. I do still get that flood of anxiety of everything that needs to be done but I feel more rested which helps me tackle it.

Had that. It gets better

You are completely enough. The things in life that matter most are not work; don't sweat it. You will look on this moment/project/etc as just a small moment of time over your entire life. Just try to be grateful and learn as much as you can. Even if that "learning" includes learning how to sleep at night!!

Working from anywhere other than home is dangerous. On Friday, for example, while getting ready, I was running late and tried to steam my dress pants while wearing them and gave myself at least a second degree burn. Never would have happened in my normal work from home attire. The risks of RTO are real!

Hello my fellow extremely busy Women In Consulting - can you talk me through what first steps you took (or would take today) in living more sustainably? I'm currently in a place where I'm totally overwhelmed with life and do a lot of things purely out of convenience, but I don't want that to stop me from trying to build more sustainability in my life. I'm just struggling with finding where to start and trying to build new habits slowly so I don't lose steam. Any advice would be much appreciated!

Thank you in advance 🐟
