How do you spend your precious unwinding time after work? I love binge watching tv shows but realize it’s probably not the healthiest way to wind after a stressful day. Anything fun / low stress yall do? Note; working out is not a relaxing activity for me so don’t even start with that. Also I am single and have no kids so ..

I love going out to nice restaurants and trying new food. In another life I’d love to be a food critic or food/travel guru 😍 honestly, before my SO and I dated, I would go to nice dinners alone or go with friends. Sit at the bar. Meet some interesting people Since we try to only go out to eat on the weekends, I find cooking/baking after work enjoyable, too. During the pandemic I also started dabbling in painting. I’m no Picasso, but it’s fun and relaxing!

Haven’t been told I was cool in long time 🥺😄 But, the trick is, go somewhere nice. Splurge on a nice glass of wine or a fancy-pants cocktail. People watch (it’s so interesting to see the dynamics between the people that come in!), and make friends with the bartender!

I do restorative yoga on peloton every night before I go to sleep - it is a great way to to unwind. Also, to sound as nerdy as possible: I like to do puzzles and scrapbook. Both are things I can do with the tv on in the background, which makes me less likely to scroll Instagram while watching Netflix

Walking my dog! I get exercise/movement without it feeling like exercise.

@OP: I hope you get over your fear! I’m sure that was scary and not everyone is a dog lover, so that’s real. At the same time, I’m not gonna lie, I laughed because of the way you just put it out there and kept it moving. 😂

Lame, but true: peloton. I love the community feel and challenging myself. Then sitting on the couch watching Netflix feels like a nice reward

Agreed. Same here. Couch potato time is the best.

I’m also in the binge Netflix camp...but when the weather is nice I love sitting on my patio with a glass of wine after work. If I finish work early, sometimes I can get motivated to go to a dance class or go to the gym...but usually I’m wiped out by the time I log off for the day.

Drink?

like

Wish I could find this funny (if that was the intent) but the amount of alcohol / substance reliance that happens to folks in our profession really saddens me. I’ve actually gone off drinking for the past month to help regulate my anxiety and it’s helped a lot. It also helps me show up more authentically as myself in social settings rather than masking who I am. I won’t be sober forever, but I hope to stop relying on substances as a coping mechanism for my own well-being. Hope anyone reading will consider the impacts of substances they are using as well. Anyway, with a mocktail in hand, cheers!

I watch TV, play video games, and browse the internet more than I should. When I actually have energy, I try to do something artistic, go on a walk, or read for fun.

Walking, hiking, or a barre class — not as bad as a hard gym session, but really healthy and a good mental break. Also, those allow for my other hobby — baking.

Do you ever go through an interview totally prepared and you’re thinking “I am seriously nailing this!” And you leave it feeling super good, but you remember one thing you said that could have been misconstrued, or something you did that was maybe weird, and by the next day you just feel like you completely bombed it?
