1/ Create transitions. :“I realized I actually miss my commute; it provided a mental break and preparation time for the day. So now I re-create the feeling by starting and ending my day with a mock commute, by walking or biking around my neighborhood.” —CHRISTINE SCHINDLER, CEO, PathSpot
2/ Set two deadlines. “I’ve instituted a soft-stop, hard-stop process. I set an alarm to go off at 3 P.M. every weekday, which is my soft deadline. If I can stop working then, I do. If not, the alarm puts my brain into wrap-up mode and I’m sure to make my hard deadline—which is 5 P.M. I want to make sure work doesn’t consume me so that I live a life of great memories, activities, and people.”—LATICIA AUSTIN, founder, The Mobile Sophisticate
3/ Make new spaces. “I’ve created artificial divides in my home to better manage my time. I’ve converted my living room to a gym and my dining room to an office, and I use my patio for conference calls. Leaving doors closed between rooms and following this system gives me a much-needed change of scenery and adds structure to an easily blurred schedule.” —MATTHIAS METTERNICH, CEO, Art of Sport
