TGIF! The weekend is nearly here. For many of us it’s a chance to step away from the dual monitors and spend time with friends and family and on personal hobbies.
I’ve found I need to choose compelling and flow-inducing activities during my time off otherwise my mind drifts back to work and my body back to the home office. I’ve recently taken up painting with acrylics — it’s a good break from reading and writing — and I like cooking new recipes for family dinner. I can involve my kids in both those activities while at the same time feeling totally engaged with what I’m doing.
Of course, there are plenty of other things to do away from work and away from the computer. My offline, off-work activities include fresh air sports like hiking or skiing, catching the latest movie, or joining neighbors for a potluck.
What about you? What do you like to do to take your mind off work and offline?
