Practice kitchen yoga to survive arsenic hour

Kitchen yoga is a technique for getting through the "arsenic hour," which is

that frazzled window of time after work and before dinner when the kids are cranky, the adults are exhausted, and everyone's bite-your-head-off ravenous.

The first step, upon getting home in the evening, is to

change into comfy clothes, kick off my shoes (or wear wool clogs if it's cold), drink a glass of water, and put on soothing music.

That sounds like good advice to follow every evening, whether you're going to be cooking or not. In other words, try to make it a habit to change into relaxing clothes as soon as you get home. Make relaxation priority number one.
