When I first started laboring at the company that I am with now, I absolutely did not like it.
I went from doing landscaping to laboring in an office, and it was not an simple adjustment for me.
It was so hard to rest still all afternoon when I was used to walking and lifting things all afternoon long. I have found a few things that help, and one of them is stopping to do pushups and squats every hour or so. I have a fantastic supervisor who just laughs at me while I do my mini workout sessions. I have learned to prefer my job now. It is still not simple at times, even though I get through it. One of my least number one mornings of the week is Sunday. On Sundays my associate and I have our staff meetings, and they are brutal. They are about two hours long, and they are in the coldest room in the entire building. I do not know why, but for some reason, they chose the coldest room to have our staff meetings in. Everyone calls it “the chilly room.” There is no individual temperature control for that room. The entire hallway shares the same temperature control, and even though the other rooms in that hallway are around seventy degrees, this particular room is usually around sixty degrees. I keep my personal office around seventy-five degrees, so going from my office to the staff meeting room is like going from outside on a hot Summer afternoon to a freezer. My coworkers make fun of me for bringing a thick winter coat to the staff meetings, even though I do not care. I would rather look deranged and be hot than freeze during our staff meetings.
