Hello and thank you for reading my blog.
The cool down after work, is just as important as your warm up before.
Therefore I want to share with you what I do to unwind after a workday.
To do that I want to quickly share with you how my workday looks.
I arrive at work at 07.30. I pick up a sandwich (yes, we give out breakfast each morning.). At precisely 8 o’clock I call my team into a meeting and go through our goals for today and yesterdays top performances.
Until 17.00 we call our customers. I will coach salesmen and call my own customers. Calling about 150 customers/day.
The day is long and I am exhausted when the day is over.
We eat while watching TV, usually a TV-series, at the moment we are working through Stargate Atlantis.
After dinner we usually take the time to discuss our days.
Next we take care of the dishes and once again watch TV, sometimes with a glass of wine or a beer.
To really relax we take a bath together and than get prepared for bed.
We try to get to bed by 22.00.
For me this really works. Letting go of my job and not thinking about anything important for a few hours. Taking care of myself and my girlfriend is the most important.
Some evenings I will work out, staying in shape is a necessity, with a friend.
By finding this balance I feel that I can focus when I am at work and keep the pace every day.
If you don’t find this balance the risk is that you will burn yourself out.
Thank you for reading and good luck to you.
You probably unwind differently than I do, please share your day with us.
