Do you ever have those days where you plan to be mega-productive when you get home from work but instead you spend the whole night watching Netflix and scrolling through blog posts? Welcome to my life, friends. It’s either that exact situation, or I’m 100% focused on my blog and forget to do all of the other things I planned to do.
Sometimes we get so tired from the workday that all we want to do when we get home is mind-numbing activities in an attempt to give ourselves a break, but that just becomes an endless cycle which leaves us feeling burnt out and unfulfilled.
There are also those times when you can’t switch out of work mode, so you end up stressing yourself out about unfinished work and what’s to come tomorrow. Those times are the worst.
I’ve realized that I don’t really want to be stuck in this cycle anymore, so I’ve started making a few changes in my after-work routine that make me feel more productive and pumped to get home from work. If you can relate to any of the above situations, give these tips a go and start making the most of your free time!
