Six Ways To De-stress After A Long And Hard Work Week by PFBRESOURCES: 2:20pm On Jun 18
1. Play a game
Our first tip is: Play a game! Whether a board game with your family or partner, or a video game on your phone, computer or PlayStation. Playing games will not only make you relax but will force you to use your brain in a very different way from how you normally use your brain when you are at work.

2. Go outside and get some fresh air
Another great way to relax both body and mind is by going outside and just getting out of the house. Sometimes all it takes to relax mentally is to do something physically. If you are up for it after a long work week, go for a run or a walk to get some healthy exercise and think about something other than all the stress you have experienced this week.
3. Disconnect and forget everything that has to do with work

Many people tend to take work home with them over the weekend – but this is not a good way to relax and de-stress after a long work week. If you want to perform your best at work, you should also be able to perform your best at home – and this has absolutely nothing to do with working. That is why you should aim for not thinking about work at all when you are home and off work.

4. Relax your body and brain
There are so many ways to relax your mind and body. So you just have to find out what does the job for you. Do you like listening to music? Do you like to read catching and interesting books? Do you enjoy meditating or doing yoga at home? Or do you prefer to just take a nap when you feel stressed or overwhelmed? No matter what the best way for you to relax is – just do it.

5. Create something with your hands
Whenever you need to take your mind off something, try creating something physically. Do something with your hands. Whether you enjoy cooking, drawing, journaling, taking photos or something completely else, you should definitely try doing it whenever you feel stressed. Try a new recipe, do a drawing-challenge, start bullet journaling or go somewhere where you have never been before to do some photography.

6. Do something fun!
If you truly want to relax – and at the same time do something good for yourself – try doing something fun. No matter how strange it might feel, going directly from a long and hard week of work to doing something really fun and different – it works! Play around with your kid, play outside with your dog, watch a stupid reality show, day dream about your travel plans, watch funny videos on YouTube, and visit your best friend.

Sleep or in a more accurate term -take a nap.
You'll be surprised as to what a 10 minutes sound nap can do to your brain.
Music and comedy skits also do the trick.
There was a time ,I unwind by watching comedy films like; The last man on Earth ,The Neighbors , Young Sheldon ,The big bang theory etc.

Nice but can it help for ONLINE/REMOTE JOB persons like me?

Anyways ill do a lil research online because I'm sure there will be some tips for best ways to loosing up from such stress.

In all if you have access to internet + browsing gadgets and you are not financially free due to the side/residual income you get then it's your undoing (fault).
Like seriously these times ain't favorable for one income based citizens you need to have more than one income means.
