I'm Asking: What Do You Do Right After Work?

I'm Asking: What Do You Do Right After Work?

While our workdays all look similar — coffee run, emails, to-do items, lunch, meetings, calls, and planning — we all wind down in different ways. What is the first thing you do when you call it quits for the day?

I decompress by listening to NPR on the drive home.

Go home and put my PJ's on and eat dinner, then relax on the couch for the rest of the night ;]

Gym then I run home to watch my shows and relax and be lazy! Sometimes I get after myself cause I should be out and about, but the couch is too comfy!

Usually I go to the gym. On my days off from the gym, I might run some errands like going to the drug store or post office, then home to wind down and work on dinner.

First thing I do is change into more comfy clothes then make dinner for the family, usually clean up and/or do a load of laundry, then I read the paper, watch TV or play a computer game, check that homework is done and then SLEEP. Wish I had the time and energy to hit the gym.

Gym really? Yikes I don't have enough time for that. I go home, make dinner for the family, clean up, maybe do some laundry or clean, watch some tv, sleep.

Gym or go home and chill out. Either way I'm catching up on TV shows while on the treadmill or on the couch. The iPod is loaded up with Fall TV!

If I have the night off from other commitments, I go to the gym, go home and cook something, then study or clean, and then make a cup of tea and read for a bit before i go to bed. I love those nights!

Smoke a bucket, walk the dog, feed the animals, then feed the people. On the weekends when I get home at 3am I usually just smoke a bucket and get right in the hot tub :)

I watch TV and have dinner afterwards. Thanks to a DVR, I am trying to make the gym my newest evening entertainment :)

Nap! I might eat first if I'm hungry, but work just wears me out.

I usually change out of my uniform(because I don't really feel like I'm off work until I change) then heat up a cup of leftover coffee from the morning and make a snack. I'm always starving by the time I get home, no matter what shift I work!

Are you serious, everybody is working out? I usually either check my emails and everything or start cooking.

Come and relax for a little bit and check my facebook, call my mom, and anything else i might want to do. Then I make dinner with my fiance and we either go out and do something or stay in and watch our shows.

Either work out or run errands (grocery shop, laundry). Followed by cooking, which is usually one of my fav things to do, so it's relaxing for me!

Depends...if I work the morning shift, I go straight to the gym and then I usually have a few errands to run before going home to let the dog out and do all that fun stuff. If I work the second shift, I come home, pour a vodka and diet soda spritzer and chill with a magazine for a few minutes before eating a snack and going to bed.
