‘Feierabend’ is a German word describing the time after work is done and a period of leisure and rest begins. “Germans like to have a clear split between work time and me time. Because of that, I believe they put a lot of effort into being as efficient as possible at work, which enables them to fully switch off once the computer is, too. I think the biggest benefit of Feierabend is being in control of your life and making conscious decisions, rather than letting life take control over you.” Advocates of this “hygiene of work” philosophy recommended measures like going for walks outdoors and avoiding drinking. Mindset is key, but so are new habits. []
