Mindful Micro-Breaks: How to Recharge Yourself WIthin Minutes

 

The Health Sessions is NOT accepting new guest posts and/or sponsored posts at this time, due to the high volume of requests.

Thank you for wanting to contribute to The Health Sessions!

The Health Sessions is a platform for people with chronic health problems who are looking to feel as energetic, symptom-free and happy as possible, by creating healthy habits and learning to cope better with chronic illness.

Our goal is to write helpful articles in a positive and encouraging tone, while always acknowledging the harsh reality of living with chronic illness. Our core themes are:

  1. Healthy lifestyle: Small, doable things you can do to work towards your own definition of ‘recovery’
  2. Coping (better) with the emotional and cognitive aspects of living with chronic illness
  3. How to practically get things done with chronic illness
  4. Living a happy and meaningful life despite chronic illness

 

WRITING GUIDELINES:

  • Posts must be original for thehealthsessions.com. That means your post has not been published or submitted elsewhere online, including your personal blog, and will not be distributed on other websites without permission.
  • Provide scientific sources for your health claims. If you mention that certain foods, exercises or habits are (un)healthy, share with us how you know, by putting links from trustworthy sources in brackets: [e.g.: https://thehealthsessions.com/blog]
  • Although The Health Sessions values science-based advice, please write your guest post in an approachable tone of voice. Address the reader with ‘you’, give real-life, relatable examples of what you’re trying to explain and make your tips actionable. Also keep in mind that most of our readers suffer from (chronic) health problems, so (part of your) tips must be doable for all kinds of energy levels.
  • Feel free to link to relevant websites and blog posts (your own included) in a non-commercial way, but only when it’s helpful and of added value to the readers. Please reserve self-promotion of your business, products or service to you bio (as opposed to directly in the post).
  • You can hyperlink or put relevant links in brackets; e.g. [https://thehealthsessions.com/archives/].
  • For transparency reasons, all guest posts will have the author’s name in the byline. The Health Sessions doesn’t allow ghost writing on the website.

 

HOW TO SUBMIT:

  • After confirmation, send your full post in plain text (not HTML) in Microsoft Word, Google Doc or a comparable program to jennifer[at]thehealthsessions[dot]com, with the working title in the subject line.
  • Not mandatory: Send relevant images to your post as separate documents, not pasted within the document. Only send photos that you own, or images that can be used under the creative commons license, with a link back to the original source. Photos in landscape format work best on our website.

I will try to respond to your submission within two weeks.

You may be asked to revise to make your posts stronger or more suitable for our readers. Your post may be edited for grammar and clarity. If any major changes are made, you will be asked to review and approve it first.

When your guest post is accepted for publication, it would be highly appreciated if you help promote it across your social media channels.
