The Healthy Career Author

Writing is a solitary activity. We sit at our desks alone for hours at a time, typing away, often letting our posture slip and forgetting to stand and take breaks. It can be easy to get lost in our fictional worlds and let our health slip away.

Both Zach and J. have both made their health a priority over the last several years, and each has a unique story and experience to share. Join them on this episode as they dive into the things they’ve done to do better for their bodies and their minds to improve their overall health.

The Career Author Podcast is a podcast where co-authors J. Thorn and Zach Bohannon share their struggles and successes as full-time authors, advice for improving your writing craft, and honest discussions of what it takes to build a successful career as an author.

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • Why making only a single change can make all the difference.
  • The importance of simplicity.
  • How strict dieting can lead to burnout and relapse.
  • How to make better decisions at the grocery store.
  • What types of exercises you should be doing.
  • Why you should never skip warming up and cooling down during your workouts.
  • The importance of recovery and rest.

Also in this episode, learn all about J.’s recent standing desk acquisition.
