When my big kids were little and my little kids were not yet born, I used to warn that if I was in the bathroom with the door locked, no one was allowed to come in unless someone was bleeding. I was only partially kidding—emergencies involving things other than blood would have warranted entry, I guess.
Nowadays, I feel like I’m always working, or thinking about working, or wondering if I should be working. It’s not a healthy way to be for long stretches of time, but I just can’t seem to unwind.
So I’m keeping this post super-short and asking you for ideas. How do you unwind — not in terms of “me time,” necessarily, but just at the end of a regular work day?
Glass of wine? Long bath? Yoga? Prayer? Cooking? First-person shooter games on the Xbox? Going for a run?
What works for you?
