re: How to stop thinking about code after work VIEW POST


No one likes to be the guy that yells at their significant other because they used the word or when they meant and because you’re steeping in an apathetic wasteland of logic.

This one hits hard. Damnit, I've been there before.

Nice writeup and it seems like we've developed a similar routine. Especially the part with the force context switch is great advice for people struggling. I've learned in my days as a traveling consultant (4-5 days at hotels, home at the weekend) to truly disconnect. And the travel actually helped. Since these days are pretty much over right now and I work a lot from home, I've adapted.

  • I don't use my work-machine for anything else than working.
  • Closing that notebook with the knowledge that my work-day is over and I'm heading home now.
  • Use different Wallpapers on my personal machines than the work machine. No reminders.
  • No Slack, No Email on my phone after 6PM (Do not disturb settings are awesome)

I think that's it. So far, it was enough to keep my mind from drifting back to work. But I like your approach with the and i'll try to adapt this to my Note-taking habit.
