How to Switch Off
We’re excited to bring you the latest in our ‘How To’ series. This is our last episode before the Holidays and 2019!
Thanks to those of you who sent your requests for what ‘How To’ topic to cover next. We thought this topic of ‘switching off’ was just perfect for this time of year, so thank you Felicity and Sophia!
Here at Don’t Stop Us Now! we’re passionate about how important it is for our health and our performance at work to take a break and genuinely switch off.
This episode shares research that might surprise you. Plus we are issuing you with a challenge… hint: it’s to do with something that has a battery and a switch off option!
Seriously though, Christmas and New Year is the perfect time to practise switching off given how many of us typically rush around like crazy finishing off work projects, doing Xmas shopping and generally feeling a bit manic as the end of the year approaches!
In this episode you’ll hear:
- How Americans use their phones 14 billion times a day and how often you’re likely to look at yours!
- How taking holiday leave has been shown to improve your performance ratings at work
- 3 tips to help you switch off over the break and improve your chances of heading back to work feeling refreshed and rejuvenated
- Plus tips you can try when you’re back at work to make 2019 a great year!
We’ll be back with our next episode on January 18th.
Wishing you love and joy for the Holidays and a Merry Christmas if you celebrate it.
Here’s to an unstoppable and fulfilling 2019!
