And a frequent routine that doesn’t involve relaxation can consequently make you unwell. So, look for ways that make you relaxed and invigorated.

Take a Long Hot Shower
It’s probably the first thing that you should do once you are home. After a long, hectic day, just get rid of work clothes and take a long, hot shower. You can also soak yourself in the bathtub with some nice bath salts and oils. This will soothe your tense muscles and help you relax. Slip into something comfy afterword. Any thing is better than those uncomfortable work clothes!
Spend Time with Family and Friends
You can unwind alone after a tiring day but don’t stay alone for too long. Because nothing helps to release and to relieve stress better than the company of your loved ones. It’s a good idea to go out and see some good friends. Or, have a nice dinner with your family. Spending too much time in loneliness will make your mind wander back to issues at work and you will start feeling stressed again.
No matter what you prefer for your relaxation, it will not be possible to relax completely if you are still stuck with your thoughts about work. Leave the office in the office the moment you step outside. Preferably, turn the work phone off. Just simply disconnect from office. Try not to bring work home. Your mind and body deserve to have some ‘me time’. Your family also deserves some quality time with your undivided attention.
Relax with Music
Some good relaxing music, as per your mood and taste can help you calm down and get your mind off the woes of work. Music is known for its therapeutic and relaxing capabilities. It is now scientifically proven that music slows the heartbeat and lowers the blood pressure. Go for the softer and gentler genres. Use headphones, sit back, and relax.
