Leave Your Bad Day at Work

We all have them: those days when nothing goes right. To avoid taking the stress home, try doing three things at the end of a bad day:

  1. Clear your mind. Take a few deep breaths. Think about the things that matter to you outside of work. Prepare yourself mentally to walk out the door and leave the
    day behind.
  2. Do something easy. Send off a report, reconcile a balance sheet, or reply to a few straightforward e-mails. Get some things off your to-do list to restore a sense
    of control.
  3. Get up and leave. Once you’ve completed the task, don’t check your email once more or stop by someone’s desk. Just leave.
