How to Take Mind Off Work

How to Stop Thinking About Work on the Weekends

Congratulations! You've made it through yet another tough workweek. Sometimes, when the daily grind is too grueling, it's hard to take your mind off work and transition to weekend mode. Here are some tips to help you kick back and relax.

Manage your schedule

Do your best to juggle your schedule so you're not doing work on the weekends. It's really hard to stop thinking of work when you're actually doing work on the weekends. If you have too many tasks to do, then experiment with working a little later on the weekdays, or talk to your boss about your workload.

Detox from tech

Time for a digital detox! This is the perfect way to take your mind off your job. Enjoy the simple pleasures of life without being tethered to an electronic device. If you're reluctant to disconnect from technology, then try this instead: hide your work phone and don't check your work emails.



Om . . . clear your mind and detach from the weary working world. Meditation is a great way to separate yourself from life's stresses, which includes your thoughts about the daily 9-to-5 as well! POPSUGAR Fitness has some great meditation tips, which include focusing on your breathing and setting an alarm to let you know when you're done.
