I have already written about this topic before (in German) , but one cannot stress enough how important it is to take good care of one’s body and mind (or brain), especially when working at a desk for the majority of the time.
Marta Stelmaszak from WantWords, who has a whole series of excellent lessons for translators on her blog, also wrote about this, and I can only recommend her Lesson 27: Taking care of a translating brain.
Are there any other good posts about this out there? If so, please let me know and link to them in the comments!
Pass on the goodies… 😉
