Give your brain permission to unwind
- Wrap up your day — Take five minutes to capture any loose ends on your to-do list and calendars. This can help reassure your brain that it does not need to keep scanning to remember these tasks.
- Practice “going neutral” during the day — Set a reminder to cue yourself to pause. Find ways to renew your energy by taking deep breaths, stretching and moving.
- Create a “relax time ritual” that trains your mind and body to let go — Pick a routine that will help you unwind at the end of the day.
