Ex-Men’s Fitness Business Development manager David Lee has penned a book with the clickbait title: Is Your Boss Making You Sick? Now nearly every employed person I know would likely scream in unison: “Yes, that miserable cunt is bad for my mental health.”
Funny because it’s true. Working for someone, even in a safe workplace, can make you very sick. Your mental health can suffer, your self-esteem, and even your physical health, as Dave and his now-in-remission partner know only too well.
Dave’s book is, as it promises to be, “a transformative exploration of eight foundational mind and body principles that infuse awareness and presence into every moment of the day.” These principles Dave lives by, and he has for decades, and he has fared well because of it, despite multiple setbacks.
The Eight E’s of Equilibrium Dave uses to enumerate the path— Enlightenment, Education, Exercise, Eating, Engagement, Encouragement, Entertainment, and Embodiment— will help correct the errors of an unhealthy and imbalanced lifestyle. Through practical and applicable lessons, the book teaches you how to employ each of these foundations and avoid burnout and ill health.
Too many times salarymen slowly die, their life stripped away with senseless reports, unnecessary presentations, endless meetings, and mindless commuting to please a boss. Without a plan, their bodies deteriorate, and minds stagnate, and an early grave beckons. It can be soul-crushing. In your attempt to please your boss, you neglect your health and make sacrifices that will affect your long-term health.
With the 8 E’s of Equilibrium, you can unlock the secrets to optimizing your well-being, turn leisure time into treasure time, and maximize every precious moment. This book is designed for the time-poor individual who feels disconnected from time itself. It is written for the procrastinators, who always seem to find the time to do anything but what they know they should be doing. The books would suit those people who feel that they have been separated from the life they love and can’t seem to find the path back to purity, of loving what they do, doing what they love.
The book says it is for those who work hard at life but can’t understand why the harder they work, and the more overtime they put in, the less happy they are. The hard workers who are unaware of how to set boundaries and also feel their unsympathetic bosses are making them sick.
This book is broken down into easy-to-remember and easy-to-respond-to segments of time maximization across each day that can be followed sequentially or tapped into when it suits. It’s a good read and smelling salts for those trapped in the spiral of a job with a boss who’s probably making you sick. Read it and apply the principles and you could save your life.
