Business is business

Business is business but how do you wind down and change your business thoughts into relaxation mode?

I personally am also a full time competing triathlete that helps me unwind from a heavy business day of meetings and more meetings. Just to get my running shoes on and get off road running through a forest is so relaxing. An hour or two pool swimming & drills is cool and then I also long distance bike training, where I do switch off and trance ride 60k,100k and up wards etc.

When turns you off and sets yourself up for another day of business?

Sunday is a day of relaxation for some, for me its time for long distance training mode.

Cheers and looking forward to some answers and I bet some of you will have some crazy replies!!!!

One must learn to focus on different subjects totally...

Then in "switch mind mode" they can concentrate on a hobby and allow their minds to recharge...
I just take practice and a desire to maintain a healthy mind...)

I usually use meditation to help calm my mind down. After a day of working on projects I keep thinking about more ideas and can get a little bit restless.

Also helps me to go lift weights and just get out of the house. Fresh air always helps.

Unfortunately, it seems like all I do is work...

A trip to the grocery store or to run errands is my relaxation time normally.

BUT...when I am fortunate enough to get time to unwind, I enjoy the following:

Reading, writing (go figure), flea market/pawn shop/yard sale hunting, etc.

You need to take out some time from your daily schedule this would recharge your mind and it helps in creativity too I would say.

Since my work involves using my laptop and the Internet (which I'm sure most of you do too) for a large part of the day, I'll make sure I spend some time after work each day off the computer. This can involve a swim, reading a book or just meeting friends for dinner!

I personally think the best way to "switch off" your business thoughts is to be involved in a mini-project or hobby. I love travelling, photography and a bit of writing, which led me to set up my own travel blog and I have been working on it for the past few years. It helps to have a separate goal to work towards besides your business, otherwise its easy to fall into the trap of working 24/7.

I used to take little breaks when am busy performing my job. I have computer job and most of my time is consumed over the net. So i take breaks switching myself to some youtube funny pranks, funny accidents, airplane accidents, magic shows and entertainment little shows etc. I also used to have a look at google news after two to three hours to keep me update with latest news. Breaks and entertainment is necessary to run a business successfully. These are useful for our mental and physical health as well.
