  • Freelance Fitness: Perk Up Your Playlist

    By Jennifer Mattern on June 28, 2010
    Even though I've been doing most of my workouts indoors lately because of the heat and humidity Mother Nature's been throwing our way here, one of my favorite workouts has always been walking (or hiking depending on where I am). When I don't have someone with me to talk to while working out, I pop in some headphones before heading […]

    By Jennifer Mattern on June 16, 2010
    Let's talk some more about trying to stay healthy and fit as freelance writers. More specifically let's talk about workout buddies, the different kinds, and why you might want one. Then I'll show you how to use one of our free online tools for writers as a fitness tracker that you can include in forums, blog comments, posts, your own […]
  • Freelance Fitness: The Wonders of Workout Videos

    By Jennifer Mattern on June 14, 2010
    So I missed the last couple of freelance fitness posts. I'd like to say it's because I was just sooooo busy hiking my ass off that there wasn't time. But that would be a lie. A big one. My ass is quite firmly in place I'm afraid. To attempt to make it up to you, we'll have two workout-related posts […]

    By Jennifer Mattern on May 23, 2010
    I hope everyone's having a great weekend! But it's time for our weekly freelance fitness tip with a new idea for staying healthier during the next work week, and beyond. Last week we talked about working at a standing desk. This week it's time for a food and nutrition tip. Let's talk about breakfast. You've surely heard that breakfast is […]
  • Freelance Fitness: Use a Standing Desk

    By Jennifer Mattern on May 16, 2010
    This week's Freelance Fitness post isn't really about an exercise tip for freelancers, but it is about finding a way to burn more calories while you work. As freelance writers, we probably spend far too much time sitting on our arses in front of a computer, whether that be in our home office, in our favorite cafe, or even under […]
  • Freelance Fitness Quick Lunch: Avocado and Tomato Salad

    By Jennifer Mattern on May 10, 2010
    I know I'm a little bit late on this week's Freelance Fitness post, but it's recipe time, so here it is. One thing I want to do with this series is feature extremely quick and easy breakfast, lunch, and snack ideas for those freelance writers who work from home. Why? Because the easier and faster it is to make or […]
  • Freelance Fitness – Healthy Snack Ideas for the Home Office

    By Jennifer Mattern on April 18, 2010
    It's Freelance Fitness time again, where we cover one workout idea and one nutrition-related idea each month for freelance writers working from home. This weekend it's time to talk about food -- healthy snacks to be exact. One of the hardest things for me as a freelancer trying to stay healthy and lose weight is the fact that convenience foods […]

    Today marks the start of our new Freelance Fitness series here on All Freelance Writing.

  • Freelance Fitness

    Many of you may or may not know it, but I'm on a fitness kick right now. That means that I am interested in fitness, and it feels like I have been kicked right in the head. I hate things like exertion, so I'm not exactly what you'd call a jock. Sweat tends to scare me, as I do not […]
  • Health and Wellness Picks for Freelance Writers

    By Jennifer Mattern on August 31, 2009
    I don't know about you, but freelance writing is a dream job for me. That doesn't mean it's without its downsides though. Long hours stuck behind a desk can't be good for anyone, but when you work from home alone you don't have the benefit of co-workers to entice you to get up and take a quick break or go […]
