Marc Scheff wrote an excellent post on Muddy Colors today concerning fitness for sedentary creative types! I highly recommend everyone, especially fellow Creative Pros, give it a read.
Personally, I’ve only just now gotten back into an exercise routine after being forced to abandon it during recovery from gallbladder surgery. I do the 7 Minute workout (www.7-min.com ) Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with an 8 minute Yoga routine (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/214202526001250930/ ) on Tuesdays and Thursdays. With a daily walk every day to my mailbox and around the apartment complex on top of all that.
I’m not rippling with muscles, persay, but just moving around helps me out SO much, mentally and physically! I plan to up my exercise intensity later, but this routine works for me right now and I actually *do* it instead of dreading it, which is key!
My current lack of gallbladder pretty much forces me to eat lean foods like poultry, fish and very lean pork, which actually isn’t so bad. Lean food can be just as tasty and there’s been a definite boost in mood and creativity for me now that I’m back to an exercise routine and eating better.
But yeah don’t wait for your gallbladder to fail before you try any of this stuff! XD Find something fun that gets you moving and get going!
