Before leaving your office you should take care of these things:
Maintain To-Do List
We all hear about creating a To-Do list. If you have not yet started creating it then start now. Creating To-Do list for day, week help us focus on important work which requires quick attention.

To-Do list can be created digitally with any desktop or mobile apps, you can also pen-down in your office diary. Make sure to keep a record.
Perform Small and Important Task
Make short calls, respond to emails which require prompt response, sign the documents which are require for the day, etc. By doing all these will help you complete your work day and then you don’t have to stress too much once you leave office. Such small activity will lessen your burden in next morning.
Clean up your Desk
Cleaning up your desk brings positive vibes around. No one likes desk filled with lot of files, papers around. Also this creates a big mess as when you actually require the file you won’t get as there are many files lying down on desk. Keep your desk organized. If any file is required for the next day, make sure you keep it separately this will save time and energy for next morning and you don’t have to worry about finding it.
Stop Worrying about Work
You can introspect and know what actions are required to achieve assigned task the other day. Do not think about how I will do it or how this will happen. Just think well and find out ways. Once you are done with this, you can make calls to family, switch off your system and head back to home.
Start an evening with Positive Mood
The moment you enter home leave all your work worries outside, your family is waiting for you. Sit back and relax. Spend quality time with loved ones. Ask them about what good thing happened to them on that day. Just talk good, feel good and look good. Rest everything will be okay. Spend time with friends, talk, laugh, eat good food, watch movie, play games, go to gym do whatever you feel like to be happy. Live life to the fullest and take a good sleep.
