There’s often nothing better than getting some free time off of work, especially for busy nurses. However, for many people, it can be hard to switch from work mode into relaxation mode. In order to fully enjoy your time off, leave the worries of the workplace behind.

Don’t bring work issues home with you, if you can avoid it. Take care of everything you need to do before you head out of the workplace for your days off. Plan some fun activities to enjoy with your friends and family. If possible, avoid checking your email.

Ask your co-workers to respect your time off, and try not to get involved in workplace issues when you aren’t there. By respecting your own time, you should be able to get others to do the same. This will allow you to fully enjoy your break from the bustle and busyness of work.
