Introduction to transitioning effectively from work to home

The challenge of transitioning from work to home
Transition. Shutting down at the end of a day’s work and transitioning to home is vital for our continued health and well-being. Contrary to popular belief, workers who can detach themselves from work in none work hours are no less committed or able to function whilst they are in work. So what can we do? Well, we will suggest we talk through a shutdown ritual at the end of the day. We consider the transition itself between work and home. We pay attention to what we do immediately when we got home. And we discuss some strategies we can do whilst we are at home. Small changes and an informed mindset can make a significant difference regarding this.

In this video Andy McCann outlines four of the common strategies he has found to be effective in transitioning from work and reducing work-home interference. Do these resonate with you?
