Between the hours of 8-5, are you typically sitting?
If you are, then you need to (stand up) and listen to this episode of Become More Compelling Radio.
Most of us intuitively know sitting is bad for us. But just how bad it really is may shock you.
My guest is Zack Arnold (@EmpireEditor) he's the founder of Optimize Yourself and this is a podcast episode that could literally add years to your life.
You're probably familiar with Zack's work if you've ever watched shows like Burn Notice, Glee, and Empire. He's an editor by trade, so he knows all about grueling 12+ hour days sitting in front of a computer.
About 10 years ago, Zack decided that he would stop treating his body like a Ford Pinto, and start treating it like a Ferrari. This journey led him to spend over $75,000 and a decade optimizing his health so that he can constantly perform at a high level in his career and produce amazing work on demand.ack
Most of our jobs require us to be creative problem solvers. Zack will teach us how to protect our creativity like it's our number one asset.
