I am a better writer when I exercise, case closed. Maybe that’s why this blog post isn’t very good. ;-)
We’re at the tail end of winter here in New York City and I can honestly say I haven’t moved a muscle in about two months.
Ideas flow when I’m pounding the pavement. Blog posts get expanded upon as the trees whirl by on my bike. And I can write full podcasts as I swim. But when winter hits, and I become a lazy bastard, all exercise bets are off.
We’re constantly bombarded with articles that talk about the benefit of aerobic exercise: improve your sleep, increase your energy, fight anxiety, ward off depression, etc. I haven’t seen the medical study yet (if it exists), but I know for me personally, exercise makes me a better blogger.
I’m a sports guy, not a gym guy. So when the warm weather returns, you’ll find me outside. Because the more I do outside, the better I’ll be when I’m sitting at my computer inside.
I already know you’re suffering from weak fingers and failing eyesight, dear blogger. So let’s hear your thoughts. Do you think there is a correlation between your exercise routine and your blogging effectiveness?
