Lately, I've been noticing that it has become easier and easier for me to stop thinking about work on the weekends. I've always had a problem of "turning off" - not thinking about or discussing work when I'm at home. My weekends seemed to always center around brainstorming ideas for the following work week. For the last couple of weeks though, my brain has been automatically turning off on Friday nights. Not sure how I'm doing this, I'm guessing it has something to do with it being summertime or maybe its just keeping myself busy with other things. This is great because I'm not as stressed out over the weekends and come back to work some what refreshed. (Trying to analyze my "turning off" like this makes me a bit nervous - that somehow I won't be able to turn it off, again.)
I know worrying about work is a common problem and I wonder how other people "turn off"? Do you have a technique or ritual you do to "turn off"? I would love to hear it.
