How do I stop thinking about my job all the time

How do I stop thinking about work all the time? I started a new job a few months ago, and for the most part, it's okay. It's not the greatest, and it's not something I can see myself doing long term, but still, it's okay. The problem is that the job is much more stressful and demanding than any I've had before. I think I'm handling it pretty well; I finish projects on time, I fulfill my responsibilities, and my boss is happy with me, but I find myself thinking about work ALL the time, and I really need that to stop.

Distancing myself from a friendly colleague

I've got a colleague who I've gotten to know over the last year. He's made a big attempt to be friends. We've hung out together socially a fair bit. I've realised that we have an insurmountable personality clash. I don't enjoy spending time with him. He's not a bad person. I just don't enjoy hanging out with him. He's very good at his job. He's clearly being lined up to become my manager when my current manager leaves. I want to keep excellent professional relations. So how do I back off the friendship part and still keep good work relations? He keeps suggesting things for us to do in the future socially. I'm half considering skipping a work colleagues party next weekend because I can't face spending time with him. It would be fine if I was only going to see him at the party but I'd have to catch a ride with him there and back or make a very obvious excuse to avoid catching that ride.
