Teaching is a kind of therapy. When a lesson is in full flow and the students are actively engaged in the content, worries evaporate, the mind's pressure valve is loosened, leaving one feeling re-balanced and ready to tackle the rest of the day. However, problems arise when the amount of contact time is too great. This, in turn, leads of a downward spiral into lethargy and apathy. It is tough to find this balance when teaching is one's business.
