What's a short ritual that will banish work from my mind?

I have a job that's engaging and challenging. Unfortunately, being engaged and challenged eight hours a day means that sometimes it occupies brain space outside of those eight hours.

Intern or Admin Assistant for WFH Company?

The issue is: we have no office and our 5-person team is spread out all over the country. Any way to make this work? [more inside]
