Idea of the month: Leave your bad day at work
Some days it seems like everything we do goes wrong. If you’ve had one of those days and don’t want to take it home and allow it to turn into one of those nights….try this.
Write it down. Before you dash for the door – jot down some notes on what you need to look into tomorrow.
Clear your mind. Take a few deep breaths. Visualize the things that matter to you outside of work or how nice it has been to have or prepare for some time off.
Get up and leave. Once you've completed step 1 and 2 – leave. Avoid the temptation to check your email once more or stop by someone's desk.
