In this episode, I’m talking about living a healthy life as a medical writer (applicable to all sedentary professionals), which is especially important once you hit 50. Optimizing your health over the long haul involves limiting alcohol, avoiding a sedentary lifestyle, and eating properly, and of course not smoking or taking any other substances. I talk about my recent 30 lb weight loss, how I now exercise regularly, and prefer sparkling water with cranberry juice over chardonnay these days. My new health habits blog is thehealthydeskworker.com. Hope you will check it out!
