Most writers have dangerous issues they pay little or no attention to
until it’s too late—their health! And yet, health can be more of a
problem than Writer’s Block, complications of concentration, writing
anxiety, daily output frustration and editor angst. What I’m talking
about is sitting related diseases.

It took me five years to write my novel, The Mayor’s Wife Wore Sapphires,
and all during that time, I had to work at keeping healthy. First of all,
I was gaining weight. Then came cold feet with tingling sensation, mental
fog, stiff shoulders, headaches, loneliness and depression. I knew I
needed a routine of loving me to ever finish this novel. If you don’t
believe me see by bio: www.urbanclassicbooks.com. I share how I had to
love me enough to be energetic and in good health when my novel was
finished.

Sitting from three to five hour stretches at a computer naturally causes
obesity, unless it is counterbalanced with an hour of walking, running,
stretching, or aerobics. Obesity alone brings along body break down—poor
circulation that causes heart disease, hypertension and mental fog,
diabetes, heart failure, and thus kidney failure, stroke and don’t forget
sagging skin.

Each hour you sit at your computer causes another part of the body to
break down, atrophy, cells to die, muscles to sag. Those are just the
results you can see. The body was wired to move. When it doesn’t move it
rusts inside, and rust (oxidation) causes health problems. As simple as
that.

Now that we’ve identified the possible disasters, let’s talk about how to
keep the five-hours-a-day work at your computer from rushing you away
from this earth, or debilitating you. Begin by bargaining with time to
enjoy and promote your great American novel, or that famous nonfiction
book—without a potbelly, hunched shoulders, or wrinkled face when you get
on Oprah—if you’re able to walk onto that little stage.

Brisk Walking—This is my favorite. You need no partner, no special time,
and no expensive gear. All you need is a will and a habit. Now if you go
out at the same time every day for thirty days, you’ll have the walking
habit. Brisk walking brings oxygen into lungs that help rid the body of
that great destroyer—oxidants. It’s also a weight-bearing activity that
keeps the back strong, the neck and legs improving in performance. It
pushes blood through your body and washes out harmful things we ingest.

Running—That’s my next favorite. It gives you the sped-up version of
brisk walking.

Dancing—I like dancing because it causes physical and social healing. It
moves every part of your body. It gives you interaction with other people
to laugh with, make a fool of yourself with and potential new characters
to write about. It makes you feel happy.

Yoga— This exercise stretches every muscle in your body and sends blood
flowing to your face and brain. Yoga is the only exercise that
systematically exercises all of the internal organs of your body—liver,
spleen, heart, pancreas, thalamus, and intestines. All three of the above
are free, and you know writers often need FREE.

Gym—usually people pay for this, but won’t drive there to exercise. I
live in a condo complex and it has a free gym. It’s great for cold days.
There are machine and weights for every part of your body. I love the
weights and pull down machines that relieve my shoulders of computer
hunching tension.

Drink eight glasses of water per day as an antioxidant…to wash all the
poisons from your system—stale indoor air, that fatty snack you took when
you left your computer. Oh, by the way, just stock the fridge with green
stuff, carrot and celery sticks. When you don’t have any bad stuff to eat
you won’t eat it.

Move from your computer every hour. Do something physical. Vaccum, cook,
exercise.

Eat lots of green stuff—spinach, greens, cabbage, okra, peas

This is your best bet for being alert and looking strong and healthy when
you go on Good Morning America for the entire world to see. Now if you
decide you don’t want to choose this lifestyle, or some other daily
exercise program, then don’t blame your nurse when she sticks you with a
needle or your doctor demands that you have a stay in the hospital. It’s
all left up to you.

By the way, I did finish my novel with aplomb, got 5-Star Reviews, and
I’m working my way toward the Oprah Show!
