New interview series start: How do you stay healthy and fit?

As you know, last week I published the post "Being a healthy freelancer: your eyesight matters". I didn't realize then how popular it would become. In fact, it turned out to be my most popular post in November. That gave me an idea to make a new series of interviews with just one question for fellow freelancers: How do you stay healthy and fit?

I posted the info about the interviews on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and I am both amazed and humbled by how many colleagues responded! If you haven't seen my posts in social media, but this topic is of interest to you and you want to share your experience please contact me at olga @ yourprofessionaltranslator (dot) com! I am looking forward to hearing from you!

The first two colleagues that want to share their experience with us are Flavia Ivascu and Olga Dyussengaliyeva.

If you are one of them, please leave a comment below and share how you do it!

Especially given the fact that I've written a post about gratitude a very loooooong time ago. So let's see how many things I can come up with in 10 minutes.

Some things stay the same as they were 2 years ago, plus there are a few more:
