How do you switch from work mode to rest mode? It's not an idle question, because what's the harm in hiding, quite often when we leave the workplace, we mentally stay in the office. This was reported by SSPDaily.

"And this," writes the Philly Voice, "is bad because it affects our personal lives and mental well-being. Here are some tips on how to successfully unplug at the end of the day.

Set clear boundaries

The key to "unplugging" is the ability to set a boundary between work and personal time. To do this, clearly define the end of the working day and try to stick to it at all costs.

Prioritize tasks

Determine which tasks need to be completed by the end of the day and which can wait until tomorrow. After all, you can't do all the work. Therefore, if a task is not critical, postpone it until tomorrow.

End the day with a ritual

Before the end of the day, tidy up your desk, close all open browser tabs, and make a list of tasks for the next day. Ending your work with this closing ritual is a great way to mark the transition from business to leisure and personal life.

This tip is also important if you work from home, where the lines between work and home life are even more blurred.

Use different devices for work and play

It may be worth considering using separate devices for work and personal life. Of course, this strategy is cost-effective if your employer provides you with a computer and a cell phone.

If you use the same devices for both work and personal use, consider logging out of all office mailboxes or programs so you're not tempted to look in. This also applies to work-related messages.

Focus on personal matters

The best way to forget about work is to do other things. You can communicate with your loved ones, go for a walk, watch your favorite TV show, or read a book, as long as it brings you pleasure and gives you a psychological break.
