Free Author Resources & Training

I’m gathering free resources from around the internet for my writer, author, editor friends in these times of need.

If you know of any great, free tools, trainings, or resources the author community can use right now, please let me know.

I’m not sure how long these will stay free, so let me know if something is incorrect.


Stress Relief, Self-Care, and Mindfulness

Free Resources for self-care, restorative movement, and stress relief

Spoiler alert, this one is by my wife, Galina, and hosted on our EatMoveLive52 Health and Wellness site.

These programs apply to authors, but are not specific to authors.

With all the calls and posts to use this ‘free time’ to write or create art or be more productive, it’s important to remember that you HAVE to take care of yourself first.

You might know that I’m a health coach and nutritionist, but my wife and I work and write together. Galina is a trauma specialist, movement therapist, and author, and she’s put all of her [now] free resources in one place.

Free Resources for self-care, restorative movement, and stress relief

Movement and mindfulness programs like Unstress Your Body, 5 Days to More Peace, and several of her talks and mindfulness practices all there, and free in the link below.
