DON’T TALK ABOUT WORK.

“The habit of going home to your spouse and debriefing them is very intuitive for a lot of people,” says Peter Shallard, a business psychology expert who focuses on entrepreneurs, but it’s a bad idea.

First, “being stuck in your own work problems is a form of self-indulgence,” and second, rehashing a work problem will “stimulate us to mentally regress back to that afternoon when we had that problem.”

Instead, ask your family members (or friends or roommates) about their days, and challenge yourself to be a good listener. Focusing on other people and their needs is a great way to get out of your own head.
