Life out there in the big mean world is hectic and stressful. Especially if on top of your job and rent and tyrannical cats, you’re also single, and spending your night looks for someone who will love you through the occasional panic attack and, failing that, at least have sex with you and seem to be into it.

The Freelancers Union has been making huge moves lately to help you get and stay healthy, probably because everyone knows the freelancers’ life is based on a diet of caffeine, 11pm dinners and near-fatal quantities of screen glare. It’s already getting ready to open the country’s first medical center just for freelancers in downtown Brooklyn Nov. 5; now it’s adding free yoga and wellness programs just for independent workers too.
Two free yoga sessions will be held in McCarren and Prospect parks in the next two weeks; plus, the union will host a free workshop on “balancing your business and your health” featuring the head of the freelancers union and the doctor who will be running the new medical center. Because look at you, all pale in that computer glow. Get healthy! (more…)

The best part about summer in Brooklyn is scouting out free outdoor activities that will be fun without being crowded and filthy. (We’re looking at you, McCarren Pool.
