The question is how do you downshift at night? How do you relax?
Well for me – it’s very easy. I am not a big drinker, so it’s just a matter of sitting down and doing… NOTHING!!
I turn on the tv and I may watch of I may play on an electronic device, but generally, I just do… NOTHING… My family accuses me of being a hermit. They frequently ask me if I’m avoiding them. Most of the time, it’s just a case of me “downshifting”.
At work, I always need to be “on”, so when it’s the weekend or night – I don’t feel like being very social.
The more I think about it, the more I realize I use this technique a lot. I simply clear my mind and refuse to think about my issues or events in my life. Some may consider it a method of avoidance, but I prefer to think of it as my method of stress relief.
Sleep – Sleep is another favorite method of downshifting. 🙂
