Going home checklist

Before you leave…

  • Take a moment to think about today
  • Think about one thing that was difficult – let it go
  • Consider 3 things that went well
  • Are you ok? If not, have you told someone? Your colleagues, senior team and Occupational Health are here to support you.
  • Check in on your colleagues before you leave – are they ok?
  • Acknowledge your colleagues contribution – Have you said “Thank you”?
  • Now switch your attention to home.
  • How are you going to rest and recharge?

Consider the range of free mindfulness apps available to NHS staff
