    Default Thinking about work

    Lately I can't stop myself thinking about work and it's starting to stress me out a bit. Any tips for de-stressing and emptying your mind? Yoga? Pilates? Wank?

    Just don't do them all at the same time.



    I find since I work late on plan B or whatever, it can be hard to disengage. My preferred method is a nice hot bath with some music, my Kindle and a beer or glass of red.

    You need to find something non-taxing to do that is all encompassing. Read a book, watch re-runs of family guy, play minesweeper, take up origami.

    I was thinking about work a lot, and discovered I needed hobbies to take my mind off. Boozing is a short term solution that only pushes reality away for a few hours, burns a hole in your wallet and makes you feel crap the next day.
    Knock first as I might be balancing my chakras.

    Don't think about work much these days. Used to when I was permie - now have learned not to care much.

    Having said that, last night I did dream a fix to some code I was working on yesterday. Solution implemented by 9am, leaving rest of day to post rubbish on CUK.

    May I suggest you play this to yourself to relax.

    Get a completely mental girlfriend and impregnate her. You'll start to find thinking about work relaxing after a while.
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    She can't be completely mental if you have to impregnate her before life gets bad. The truly mental ones do that from the very first time they meet you.

    I'll charge you £75 (plus VAT) for a half-day's consultancy, to fix all of your insecurity issues around confident women.

    I'd be carefully offering that some people around here pay more than that for 1 hour of personal stress relief.
