Colorado Salary Law - Equal Pay for Equal Work Act -
I've been applying and interviewing for jobs for a few months now.

Unfortunately, most remote positions for companies not located in Colorado do not list the salary range as required by Colorado Law (enacted January 1, 2021). I have found that have the salary range listed in the job posting to be SO helpful in any salary discussions (I wish more states would do this!!).
What is some suggested wording that I can use when I'm having that initial phone conversation where a recruiter typically asks about salary, where I can point out that the salary range isn't posted (without saying they are breaking the law!)?
I've tried a few different versions of saying something like, "I'm not sure you're aware..." or "According to the new Colorado Equal Pay for Equal Work Act..." but I always feel like I end up looking bad because it's no the recruiter's fault. It's probably someone above them. Additionally, I feel like it puts a target on my back because I may have appeared to 'challenge' the recruiter. (but that might be imposter syndrome and self-doubt trying to creep in).

Is anyone here a statistician or similar? I would love to connect and pick your brain.

Struggling to figure out what level to apply for due to the job market and having differing experience in fields.
While job searching requires customizing resumes per application, my eclectic background provides a non-traditional career path with director and management levels weaved in throughout its trajectory. Having a background in branding, communication, marketing, media and during the pandemic financial marketing, the array of industries makes it harder not easier to find a job.
My last role was a director of marketing but thousands of applications later, I have either too much experience or not enough in that specific industry / region. I want to work and keep undercutting my level and salary in order to find a job. The only problem, that's not affording the desired outcome as the catch-22 rolls out the too much experience verbiage . I'd appreciate your advice.

Does anyone have advice on how to balance beginning a health journey and work? I'm talking about exercise and eating right.
For some backstory, I started working from home about a year ago. Complete change in pace from my previous job where I was on my feet all day and pretty active outside of work for the most part. While working from the comfort of my home is a dream come true...the job is everything but that. My anxiety and depression have gotten worse as a result of it. My energy levels are lower than they've ever been in my entire life so I work, sleep, and eat with no desire for anything else.
It has to change. If anyone has any suggestions on what they do for workouts or healthier meals they go for during the week (that *actually* tastes good!) I'm all ears!
I'm just looking for suggestions to help me get started. I'm hoping once I switch jobs my energy is back up and I can go back to being active because I miss it, it's just hard right now. I think something else I struggle with is finding balance. I just want to be in a place to give my body what it deserves because I am so grateful it gets me through my days.

Done With Temp Agencies
I tried to update my availability with a local temp agency.
They pressed me for references. I had questions about the positions they were offering. I was told that they can't help me because the last 4 years of my experience was remote.
Ummm.... We had a WORLDWIDE pandemic less than 5 years ago! What about the other 6 years of my experience? Bi-lingual, billing, collections, call center, transcription, grant writing, medical coding, etc... AREN'T THOSE TRANSFERABLE skills? :-/
Their little computer bot kept requesting that I send references. I asked my references to disregard their email and we've all blocked them! (Too many "other" choices....NEXT!)
Has anyone else experienced this?
