We talk about a topic close to our hearts and to every single part of our body really!

We chat health, ergonomics, and how important these are for people who work from home in their own business (and everybody, really!).

In today’s episode we cover the things we never really thought about previously in terms of keeping our minds and bodies healthy in order to perform at our best in our business, and how exercise and moving has helped not only our bodies but our brains. More clarity, more energy, more productivity and overall better business health!
