Hey, I totally understand where you’re coming from. It can be tough to find that balance in a fast-paced industry like tech. One strategy that has worked for me is setting clear boundaries between work and personal time. I make sure to take regular breaks, go for a walk, or practice some mindfulness exercises to clear my head. Also, finding a supportive community of coworkers or fellow tech professionals has been really helpful for me - being able to talk openly about the challenges we face can make a big difference. And don’t be afraid to seek professional help if you need it. Taking care of our mental health is so important, especially in high-stress environments. You’re not alone in this, and finding what works for you might take some trial and error, but it’s worth it in the end. Hang in there!
