Here are some great tips on how to unplug and recharge. These suggestions are from a column written by Elle Kaplan in Thrive Global of LinkedIn: “8 Things You Should Do After 8 P.M. If You Want to Be Happy and Successful — Wake up on the right side of the bed tomorrow.”
Elle Kaplan tells you hows you how to set yourself up to have a more productive day.
- Strolls by the moonlight
Adopt a routine of nighttime walks to decompress.
- Unplug. Literally.
Unplug everything besides your alarm clock, and watch the tension recede. Unplugging is also a key to a good night’s sleep.
- Sleep hygiene
Sleep hygiene is about more than just making your bed. Give yourself at least an hour to unwind before you actually doze off.
- Read up
Bill Gates found great success by reading for one hour every night, no matter what.
You can avoid the morning scramble by laying out clear goals and priorities for tomorrow. You’ll reduce your anxiety, and you’ll rest easy knowing you already have your ducks in a row.
- Stop mid-sentence
“The best way is always to stop when you are going good and when you know what will happen next,” Ernst Hemmingway once said. “If you do that every day… you will never be stuck.”
- School’s in
One of the best times to learn is after a long and exhausting day. Learn something new while winding down.
- Write your stress away
Writing down our problems reduces open “loops” of bad thoughts, and washes away anxiety.
