Go home happy, knowing you have put the person you are caring for at the centre of everything you do for them – then chill.
The best way I find to unwind after a busy day is to go swimming and visit the sauna. This makes me feel totally stress-free and good about myself.
I like to relax by walking my two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and having meals with friends.
Make sure you have a good balance between work and your personal life (for example, I recently reduced the number of hours I was working).
I go for walks after work with my dog Meg: she's a great listener and doesn't repeat a word.
Make the most of your leave and don't stress about work issues outside of the workplace.
Have regular "me time" and do whatever you fancy that day.
Don't forget self-care: when you care for yourself you can care for others.
Listen to music on the way home – it helps you to relax and unwind.
