“The only limitation of this job is that it is very physically demanding.
I try shoe inserts, take ibuprofen as needed, and am aware of my posture and try to walk as efficiently as possible.
The concrete is hard on the body. I walk between 7-9 hours a day.
Another downside of the job is the weather– extreme heat, rain and cold can be difficult.
Whenever I am coming to work, riding on the train, I take the first 15 minutes to meditate.
I meditate on the word emptiness. I try to mimic their openness.
I try to just enjoy where we are in that moment.”
