Simple Changes

  • Schedule breaks, walking meetings, etc.
  • Renew your sleep habits. Create a relaxing bedtime routine.
  • Set boundaries—go offline.
  • Set a higher priority on taking care of yourself.
  • Integrate structured breathing exercises.
  • Identify periods of time to “unplug”—three times per week. Create “white space” on your calendar.
  • Create a sleep-conducive environment. Remove work materials, computers, and televisions.
  • Read or watch fiction.
  • Schedule recovery into your project timelines.
  • Develop a ritual to end your workday physically and mentally. (Write down your stressors and leave them at your desk or stop the car and do four minutes of breathing exercises, etc.)
