Sit Less. Focus More. Live Longer.
If you do creative work for a living, the chances are extremely high you live in front of a computer.
ALL. DAY. LONG.
Achieving some semblance of "work-life balance" is one of the greatest personal challenges we face in the 21st century. Nobody wants to spend 60+ hours a week tapping away at a keyboard, but if that's your reality, how is it possible to even get in a few walking breaks a week? And don't even get me started on finding the extra time to hit the gym every day to "stay in shape." You've got bills to pay.
Luckily there's an alternative to being sedentary all day long and watching your health, your energy, and your sanity slowly waste away.
Wouldn't it be amazing if you could...
- Get out of your chair and be more active at work no matter how brutal your schedule
- Have the mental stamina to fire on all cylinders rather than “just barely getting the job done”
- Be able to snap your fingers and instantly step “into the zone” and start generating creative ideas rather than having to wait for inspiration to magically strike
- Finish a long day feeling like you have energy to spare (rather than feeling like you got hit by a truck...even though all you did was sit all day long)
- Arrive home to the important people in your life with energy to spare and be present and engaged with them
After over a decade of research and experimentation with myself and hundreds of students around the world, I am 100% confident all of this and more is possible.
And it all starts with moving more during your workday.
People have told me I should charge for this guide. But I'd rather give it to you 100% FREE because I would've given anything to have this information available to me when I was just beginning my journey out of the dark hole towards better health.

--- About the Author ---
My name is Zack Arnold. I’m an award-winning film & television editor (Burn Notice, Empire, Shooter, Glee), member of the American Cinema Editors, a documentary director (GO FAR: The Christopher Rush Story), father of two, and the creator of the Optimize Yourself program.
I help ambitious creative professionals like you who live sedentary lifestyles learn how to more efficiently manage your time, energy, and attention so you can maximize your creative focus and minimize procrastination, depression, and burnout.
When I first began my career as a film editor I believed I was a machine that could work 24/7 and nothing could stop me. Then at the early age of 25 I hit my first giant brick wall of burnout and suicidal depression. It was at that point I decided I would either end my life or figure out a better way to live it. From that day forward I decided I would begin a quest to learn everything possible about blending high performance with creative work in front of a computer. That journey has led me here.
