Dreadmill To Oblivion

By Art van Bodegraven | 04/10/2016 | 1:36 PM

So, how ya doin' in your job? Is there enough toothpaste in the world to get the ol' 9-to-5's bad taste out of your mouth when you floss and rinse during morning ablutions?

Are you running a victory lap? Or, merely grinding out the steps demanded by Fitbit as part of each day's requirements? Here at Chez vB, we stack up the steps on a treadmill when weather forbids a brisk outdoor stroll. On the most bleak of days, Nordic Track's finest is known as The Dreadmill, as we hesitantly approach the breaking day.

Is your job a joyous excursion, or a descent into Blues In The Basement? You've got choices. Change your attitude, or change your job. Make a decision. Either way, you are saving your mental health, and, just maybe, your life. Get off The Dreadmill, and only use the treadmill as a temporary Plan "B".
