Anyone deal with back pain? It’s to the point where I can’t edit for more than an hour before it gets intense. Seems like unless my head is perfectly centered over my spine it agitates it. Not sure...

Have you tried a standing desk? Or something as simple a a footrest may do the trick. At my office I feel free enough to lay down and stretch/do yoga if needed.

I tweaked my back playing drums and sitting at a desk was painful. I found some basic stretch & strengthen moves from the Mayo Clinic that really helped after doing daily for two weeks. First thing though, buy a heating pad. It’ll help.

As I move from comfy office chair to crappy chairs at home, I find sitting on a small pillow is helping. Puts my legs at a slightly different angle and taking some of the back pressure off. Also am trying to take breaks to lay on my foam roller to stretch the muscles out when I can. Good luck!

In a fitness slump. For my entire adult life I have been active. Got married this summer and ever since then husband and I just eat and eat (he doesn’t gain weight though). Anyways fast forward a few months and I’ve easily gained 20+ lbs and haven’t worked out since the summer. Im just feeling very blah. To top things off gyms have closed in my area due to increase in Covid cases. Reccos on getting back to it, feeling motivated or really anything to uplift my spirits 😓.

For the last 4 months, I’ve been pseudo-reverse dieting (RD) to increase metabolism and stop feeling like I was starving. I say pseudo as I didn’t gradually increase calories. I’ve been dieting 24/7 for a decade, developing a poor relationship w/food and to lose weight, I had to go through extreme measures like OMAD to see results the past 2 yrs. Since RD, my relationship w/food has improved, I’m maintaining weight but look toned af, and eating healthier than ever before. Question in comments…

For those of you that are freelancers - do you run into this issue constantly of people asking for holds without telling you what the project is? I don’t even know how to approach this because if I respond back to ask for details and THEN say ‘it’s a 2nd hold’ it’s pretty obvious I’m not interested enough to give a 1st hold. But I’m also never going to give anyone a 1st without details - don’t producers understand this when reaching out? I really don’t get it.

Venting. Got hired on FT at a large in-house in NY. Every project I have been assigned to is due immediately, already late, and has no direction. Every project is supremely animation heavy with some hand painted animations… all out of my wheelhouse. None of this was mentioned in my interviews and no one seems to understand why a video editor does not have experience hand painting animations. Seems like a special skill set that should have been discussed before hiring. Confused and burnt out.
