If you shoot both FF and APS-C, how do you mentally adjust to the change in depth of field?

I almost always shoot aps-c wide open (F2) so i can create some separation between my subject and the background.   With my Canon 5Ds instead of shooting at F1.4, i stop down to F2.8 so the entire face is in focus.   F2.8 on aps-c is probably F4 on Full frame.  I know 56mm F1.2 is equal to 85mm F1.8

If i am shooting landscapes and light allows i usually go for F5.6-F11 depending on light.  Most lenses have peak sharpness at F8.  Depth of field is rarely something I am considering though, my first priority is lowest ISO followed by a minimum shutter speed.
