My current favorite activities that I use to help me stay fit and feel focused when I write, include: a couple of mornings weekly of rowing and weight training at my local athletic club, a yoga class weekly, a massage a couple of times per month, guided meditation each quarter and a hypnosis sessions, as needed. I enjoy gardening, sailing and photography when the weather permits and walking a half hour at least 5 times weekly. Stretching helps when I remember to do it. Also travel and lovely scenery help me see the world with fresh vision.
So what activities do you do, as writers & readers, to help yourself stay well? Feel free to click on the comments section at the bottom of this entry and share ideas for keeping fit and focused.
