Throughout our lives, we form habits that will either improve or decrease the quality of our life. You are in control of your life. Learning healthy habits will have you feeling better, more energetic, and be more productive. In this post, you discover 5 healthy habits that will help you become more productive so you can sell more art and live a healthier and happy life.
5 Healthy Habits: Be More Productive
Everyone knows the benefit of exercise and moving. As an artist, you will find yourself sitting at the computer, easel or the drawing table for a good part of the day.
Finding an exercise routine that fits with your schedule and your comfort level is one of the most important things you can do for your health.
Whether it be walking, jogging, yoga, or working out at the gym as long as you keep your body active and moving your health will reap the benefits.
Exercise makes you feel energized and gives you a sense of accomplishment.
You will be able to create more art and make better marketing decisions when you are living a healthier life.
Did you know that exercise also goes hand in hand with eating healthier and making better choices in that area of your life as well?
Before engaging in any routine exercise consult with your physician.
Making wise choices in the kitchen is imperative. Exercise will not work alone. You need to eat healthy if you want to be healthy.
Start bringing whole foods and fresh fruits and vegetables into your home. Stay away from the processed, unhealthy choices that line the aisles at the grocery store.
Healthy eating can be difficult at first if you are not used to making healthy choices.
Your food choices are habits that you have made. You can change those unhealthy habits to healthier habits. Start slowly by changing one or two things at a time.
Before you know it you will be eating healthier and enjoying the food choices you are making.
Follow Your Dreams
You might have heard me say many times, and it may sound cliché but going after something you want in life will do wonders for your overall health.
Doing something you have a passion for will provide you with a healthier, more fulfilled, and happier life.
This is simply because you are letting nothing hold you back from following your heart and carving out your path to success.
Every morning you will wake up filled with energy and eager to get the day started.
Do you remember when you started drawing or painting?
Where you concerned with how long you were sitting there creating art?
Did you ever say to yourself, “I can’t believe I have been painting for a couple of hours, it seems like I just started.”
Time passes quickly because you are doing something you enjoy and have a passion for.
Maintain Your Relationships
People need other people in their lives in order to have a more fulfilling life. Social interaction is necessary for people to form a strong network that will be there for them when needed.
Those who go without that special bond are prone to bouts of depression and loneliness.
Throughout our lives, it’s important to take advantage of these connections, nurture, and maintain them.
As artists, we spend a great deal of the day alone. Enjoy quality time with someone special in your life.
Forget About Retirement
When we have a reason to get up every morning our minds keep working, our health is better, and our daily routine is intact.
Without something to work towards many people fall into a downward spiral because they stop putting their talents, skills, and mind to work.
Being an artist doesn’t feel like work because it is something you love to do.
Could you ever think of not creating art?
Healthy habits can be learned and be a part of your daily life.
All you have to do is start.
Many people see great results by changing one thing at a time instead of changing multiple habits.
Do what is best for you so you can start living the life you have always wished for.
