Keeping Your Writing Life Healthy

To accomplish the perfect perfection, a little imperfection helps.

Dejan Stojanovic

Writing has long been used as a means of expression and communication, this couldn't be more obvious than in the way we use it in today's digital world.

Since the inception of the internet things have moved quite fast, enabling writers from all over the world the ability to self-publish, blog, and even use writing as a form of therapy.  Which makes it very difficult when times get tough, and we get sick to give up the thing we love that keeps us going.

With all of the above positives, there is a downside to writing that involves spending hours on end stuck in front of a computer screen.  This kind of repetitive behaviour in the long-term can lead to an unhealthy lifestyle if it's not done properly.

But don't panic!

There is a way to write that doesn't leave you in pain and in a constant state of sickness.  As a regular writer, I make my living from writing and understand how frustrating it can be and the injuries and problems that can form, just by sitting at a desk for hours at a time.  


I am not a doctor, and this blog post isn't medical advice.  Instead it will give you guidance and suggestions to help your situation.  If you're looking for real medical advice please contact your doctor.

6 Good Reasons Why You Should Write

1. Can Help You Achieve Your Goals

Everyone has something they want to achieve in life, and by writing things down, and setting goals that's a good place to start.

2.  Can Help You Start a Business and Find Like-Minded People

Writing can lead to doors being opened, and meeting new people, like-minded people just like you.

3. Can Keep You in Fine Fettle

Writing can be looked on as a therapeutic task, and can help lower your heart rate, because it's something you really enjoy doing.  All of these things can have a positive knock-on effect in your life, and help you sleep better.

4. Can Give You a More Hopeful Outlook On Life

Journal writing has become a popular pastime for people, and can be seen as a beneficial tool in dealing with the world around you.

5. Can Help You Reach People

Writing is an amazing tool, and can be used to help others that may suffer from the same things you do.  Or it could help you change someone else's life.

6. Can Help You Decide Which Path to Take in Life

As I previously mentioned, the simple act of writing things down can help you decide on some of life's hardest decisions.

The Long-term Writer

When you start anything, and you want to really make a go of it, knowing how to do it in a way that will cause the least harm as possible is always the way to go.
