Sometimes the day didn’t go as well as you had planned. The projects didn’t get done. People aren’t getting along as well as you’d like. You’re questioning your actions, second-guessing yourself and fighting off imposter syndrome.
Then you wrap up the day with a bike ride, or a strong choir rehearsal. Or both.
And suddenly, you have perspective on the day, and you go to bed tired and happy and ready to take on tomorrow.
Find joy at the end of a tough day. Plan for it if you can, to counteract whatever negativity arises from the work day, and wash it away.
