5 Ways To Switch Off After Work
A First Steps NZ Resource by Groov Now
Self-care is vital during times of stress, and you deserve a decent break at the end of the day or your shift. Here are some ideas to help you unwind after a busy day.
Use the time between work and home to transition from ‘work mode’ to ‘relax mode’. Try not to spend your commute worrying about work or making work-related phone calls.
Depending on the length of your commute, you could:
Listen to music
Listen to a podcast
Do some deep breathing exercises
Read or listen to a book
Visualise how you’re going to relax when you get home
If you have a short commute, consider spending 5-10 minutes in your car or sitting outside before going into your home. Use this time to breathe, listen to something uplifting, or quietly reflect away from distractions.
