Giving writers advice and insights on how to stay physically active, take care of their bodies in a generally sedentary career, eat well, and adopt an overall healthier approach to life that can enhance the writing process as well!

Disclaimer: While I am a certified personal trainer (a personal passion and area of study), I’m not a doctor or dietitian. I am primarily a writer who enjoys being physically and mentally active and wants to help other writers realistically pursue overall fitness. While it contains advice, tips, and strategies, this series isn’t a prescription or a personalized diet/workout plan. If you have questions about how certain exercises or eating protocols might impact your health, consult your doctor.
