How to decompress

Sometimes when you switch on your thinking it's hard to switch it off.

I used to work as a wine waiter to get through school. At the end of a ‘switched on shift', once the patrons had gone, the staff would sit and have a drink and chat. They knew from experience that rushing straight home all switched on for 'service', would result in a night of tossing and turning.

I switch into weekends on Saturday morning by baking.

I switch into days off by washing cars.

I switch off at the end of the day with exercise.

Get out of your head and into something basic, something physical or something that commands your attention.
