I’ve been on one of my famous writing sprees as of late. As of now I’m about 13000 words into one of my next pieces (not for my fitness biz though) and I doubt I’ll stop short of 20000 words by the end of the day, if even that.
Now this sort of marathon isn’t that unusual for me, of course. I recall telling you about last October when I was literally GLUED to the computer screen either creating my fitness products – – or other for other businesses I have, and again – almost literally being “chained” to the keyboard as I did so!
Though I did take breaks to workout for short bursts and for food, that was about the only break I took while on these writing sprees.
And you may ask me this – how did I manage to keep up such a schedule – and still do on occasion especially when writing is reputed to be one of the toughest things to do for most people?
How can I keep my energy levels high and unflagging – and READY to conquer the next park or the next Chapter?
Well, first off, I’m human just like you are. One of the keys to doing is what I mention in Zero to Hero, that being to work – but in brief bursts – which for me, and most people is TWO hours of SUPER productivity before taking a short break.
That is what I’m doing today as well, and I’m writing to you in the midst of one such break as it were.
Now that’s one key – but still – how do I keep my enthusiasm and energy levels sky high during the day, you ask?
Well, apart from what I’ve mentioned above – a huge, huge secret (although given I speak about in every email damn near, it shouldn’t be so!) is my visualization techniques, and how I visualize the end result of my project – while I BREATHE deeply (and thus breathe in the results as it were).
Believe me, if it’s something that means anything to you – then deep visualization, even if done for a minute or two will get you in the FEEL good ZONE – and will get you buzzing internally and literally zap all fatigue within seconds.
Zero to Hero mentions both these techniques in detail, and now, when it comes to actual physical workouts?
Well, the way to recover from them are many, but the best, best way is deep breathing done correctly – done as I detail in 0 Excuses Fitness and this is literally so important that I devote an entire Chapter to it, my friend.
Yes, I know what you’re thinking.
It’s just breathing. It’s nothing special. Oh, more esoteric stuff!
And so forth … but guess what, it’s not “just breathing”.
On the 0 Excuses fitness homepage I mention Nature didn’t just give us the ability to breathe. Nature gave us the ability to literally breathe in the results we WANT for ourselves both in terms of life and fitness and anything in general – and it’s true.
The breathing techniques I’ve detailed in 0 Excuses Fitness will not only energize you beyond belief during, before and AFTER tough workouts – but they can also be applied when performing tasks to meet a certain goal – such as writing what I am today, for instance.
Try these little tips, and let me know how it goes!
Alright, my friend, thats it for now. My daughter’s running a fever on top of it all, and I’m off to chat with her a bit (she got back early from school today due to the fever) before continuing ON with my writing project.
