    Thanks for this, Katrina, as it’s certainly a subject worth discussing.

    Although I have the flexibility to hit the gym every morning, many other people are not as fortunate. But that doesn’t necessarily spell doom as long as you get creative with your options. Ankle weights are especially helpful and your body eventually embraces them (as opposed to wearing you out).

    Thanks … I really need to work on this myself. I need to get back to wearing ankle weights … I did that years ago but stopped … it works wonders … 🙂

    Hello, Katrina!

    That’s JUST for me!

    I am totally chained to my two laptops and in the workroom in my home office.

    I definitely have a subscription to a gym but I am too lazy to go out for it every day, thanks to summer and my allergies. 🙂

    In the plans to get me a stationary cycle so that I could place it in my workroom to at least kill some calories.

    Yeah, I am overweighted but things are going towards killin’ it as well.

    So, thank you for writing on this too-needed topic!

    Hey Katrina,

    This is the story of all bloggers, we all are lazy and don’t like to exercise.

    Although I go to Gym, but not regularly, I am too lazy, I just loving sitting on my chair with my laptop.

    But anyways, Thanks for the tips Katrina.

    Hi Katrina!
    Snacks are my biggest sin, sometimes I am so nervous to finish things on time that I need to put something into my mouth to calm down a little…. since I started in this business I have been struggling not to gain too much weight. I think that your article gives us excellent advice on that matter.

      I hear you loud and clear. It’s the little things that count, so whatever you’ve been doing, keep it up!

      For example, drinking ice-cold water actually burns a few calories (7-10 depending on cup size). If you aim for 6 cups a day, it amounts to a nice number by the end of each month 🙂

      Thank you so much Janice. Will do just that… and a bit more (recip within a future post).

      P.S. Fantastic post, by the way. Very thorough.
      Enjoy your day!

    This article will be very helpful to my partner who actually works from home. I appreciate all the tips and tricks, it can be so frustrating not being able to look after your health and to be chained to your desk.

    It’s not just eye strain that is the reason you need to get up and exercise every hour – it’s the long term impact on your back and posture. Most of you are probably many years younger than me (I’m nearly 70) but after decades working as a journalist hunched over a typewriter, and then decades working in front of desktop and laptop screens, I suffered a lot of back and posture problems that resulted in sometimes weekly trips to the chiropractor, and weekly back massages (the latter weren’t so bad of course!)

    These days I have a bit of software on my Mac that gives me a verbal reminder to take a break every hour, and I wear an Apple watch that records whether I do in fact stand up every hour and a number of other activity metrics during the day. I wish we had this technology back in the early days of my writing career – my back would be in a much better condition than it is now.

    So please don’t take your back for granted – when you pursue writing as a career it will start giving you problems sooner than you expect.
