Going to the gym and blogging about fashion — you might think that those 2 things do not intersect. Well, they can actually help each other one way or another.
I personally use my blog as a creative outlet and I write whenever I feel inspired, however, as you’re leveling up and decide to monetize your blog — consistency in your blog and content is necessary if you want to build a community of people interested in you and what you write about.
Being creative and feeling inspired to write isn’t a 24/7 thing, atleast for me. Just because I have some spare time, I may or may not feel sluggish at the same time, I just cannot bring myself to create anything for the Internet, I’m just not inspired enough to come with something up. Those are issues that us bloggers encounter a lot of times these days and this may also be called ‘burning out’.
Avoiding bloggers burnout is not really possible because it’s a step in the creative process I’d say. The difference is when and how each blogger gets over that burnout feeling and comes out fresh as never before.
So, Vlad, how going to the gym regularly will help my blog?
It’s very easy! Going to the gym will not only improve your image but it will also build your confidence which comes with high self-esteem, motivation, and inspiration that will keep your creative process going.
Here’s another thing, humans are competitive and LOVE to hit goals over and over again. Set fitness goals and smash them. Look at the big image – next year today, then split everything into projects (12 months, 12 projects), weekly goals, and why not daily goals (mine is hitting 10k steps a day).
Going to the gym helps you focus better (obviously) and it will also take your mind away from blogging and you kind of want that because when you’ll be coming back, you’ll be fresher than ever! Not only fresher but more creative and motivated.
And NO, you don’t have to spend hours and hours in the gym (or even go every day) — make a routine that works for you only. I personally go 3 times a week and stay for about an hour and a half! After I’m out, I feel very productive and my confidence is way higher!
So, working out is a nice, free, amazing way to make the creative process smoother and also a nice way to avoid a hard burnout feeling.
PS: You don’t even have to go to the gym, you can walk/run wherever you’d like whether it’s on your street or local park 🙂
