I'm typically getting in a half day (4 hours) on the weekend. It's enough to help me get ahead, but also small enough to still allow time for a real weekend.

Usually Sunday night planning. How does somebody not do this and stay sane??

I only do it when I know that putting in 4 hours on Sunday will help out enough to justify it. Not jus to log in to send some emails with a Sunday date on them to the bosses. Having some work cleared up before starting the week can be helpful, and I feel I get a lot more done in those 4 hours on a weekend than I sometimes do over 8 on a weekday because I'm not getting interruptions like teams chats/calls, emails, etc.

This is the first time I haven't worked on the weekend since I started a new position 2 months ago. I had to make myself not do it! And just noticed it's 12:08 AM Monday....can't promise I won't do some work now!

Do not work on the weekend, not paid and have enough time during the weekdays to get everything done that is needed. I think it is important to not burn yourself out by working on the weekend. That is time off to enjoy and relax and NOT think about work. It gives you a mental break so that you are ready for Monday morning.Β

Not usually no. It's important to unplug.
