90 percent of my office days go as scheduled...sometimes a jaw fracture or multiple emergencies from other offices can put a strain on not only me but the office staff as well.
In order to maintain mental stability I believe a stress release needs to be placed in your daily regimen. I was a cyclist in college and that transferred into competitive triathlons since 1989. The highs and lows of the day can be uplifting but at the same time can be a drag.
Six days a week I like to come back to earth training for triathlons. Swimming, biking and running all play a large role in my remaining mentally prepared for what the next day might bring.
