Whenever someone begins to lose focus, effectiveness and productivity at work, it’s time to unwind. Despite appearances that people thrive on stress in the 21st century, it’s detrimental to everyone. Part of that stress comes from being away from one’s family for extended periods, so it’s a good idea to relieve any built-up stress by doing something relaxing with the family. Working out allows people to channel their emotions and feelings into endorphin-producing physical activities like weightlifting, running, swimming, or playing basketball or tennis. If one can bond with family over the shared experiences, so much the better.
