Working from home can be a brutal business when you are putting in long hours and continually blurring the line between home and work! If you find yourself wound up a little too tight after a day of working from home, we have compiled some more tips to help you feel a little less stressed!
Each day when you reach a good finishing point, whether it be your current assignment, project, or it’s simply 5:00—find a way to make a ceremony of closing up shop for the day! Whether it be organizing your workspace, turning off your work computer, or changing out of your Zoom clothing, make it a point to do so every single time—and make it final! By doing this you will help yourself unwind after just about any kind of day!
This ties into the last tip, but you should consider unplugging your devices—as well as yourself from the digital world! This helps clear your mind, and helps you get ready to just relax! With some professions this might not be possible, but if you can do it you might want to give it a whirl!
Cooking a healthy meal is one of the best ways to unwind after a stressful day at work, whether it be work from home or otherwise! As most of us have probably experienced, when you have a great lunch while at work it can be hard to want to go back since you were able to disconnect in order to eat! By doing this at the end of the day it can help you achieve the same kind of disconnect, but at a more appropriate time—after work! Find a good recipe and help yourself wind down, both you and your stomach will be thankful afterwards!
