When I first started working at the company that I am with now, I really did not like it.
I went from doing landscaping to working in an office, and it was not an easy adjustment for me.
It was so hard to sit still all day when I was used to walking and lifting things all day 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 great manager who just laughs at me while I do my mini workout sessions. I have learned to enjoy my job now. It is still not easy at times, but I get through it. One of my least favorite days of the week is Friday. On Fridays we 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 cold room.” There is no individual thermostat for that room. The entire hallway shares the same thermostat, 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 warm summer day to a freezer. My coworkers make fun of me for bringing a thick winter coat to the staff meetings, but I do not care. I would rather look silly and be warm than freeze during our staff meetings.
