5 things I do to unwind after a long day

Some events can turn a day into the longest day making you wonder just how much more you can take before you lose it. I have lost my cool on some days and my colleagues have never stopped calling me ‘apilo matindo.’

Over the years, I have found these five things to be of help.

Taking a warm bath

Setting my phone on ‘airplane mode’ or ‘switching it off.’ This way I cannot be reached until I am ready or in the right set of mind to engage someone.

Sleeping. I love sleeping because in a way I get to recharge and every time I wake up from such naps I am always hungry.

Listen to music.

Writing. I have been keeping a journal since I was twelve, and those stacks of books hold memories of many life experiences.
