Blogging is a personal weblog, in which a person would journal about their day. The word “Blog” was derived from the words “web log” combined. Blogging can affect your health in so many ways.
Many entrepreneurs notice a great marketing potential in having a blog, and blogging began at that point of time. A blog can not only be used for marketing but also, a home business or a personal opinionated platform.
In today’s generation- Blogging is among the most thriving achievers in the fields of success. Running a blog is about socializing with a larger audience as well as getting recognized for the ideas you hold or perhaps the views you put forward about whatever topic interests you the best.
Blogging can be hazardous to your health. You spend long hours sitting, staring at your computer screen and tapping the keyboard. It’s not a healthy lifestyle. Let’s look at what you can do to get fit and healthy, and stay that way.
I’ve been blogging for many years. My student bloggers tell me that their biggest challenge is stress. Tension and anxiety lead to health concerns like Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI), overweight (they eat to relieve anxiety), and insomnia.
Our bodies weren’t designed for long periods of sitting. Immobility places a strain on every system of your body, including your vascular system. Break up your hours of blogging. Get up and move around at least three times every hour.
It’s not easy. You become engrossed in what you’re doing, and time slips away. Try putting the things you need — your cell phone, for example — out of reach. Until you get into the habit of moving around several times an hour, use a timer to remind you.
Keep a bottle of water handy. One can become dehydrated before you become thirsty. So, whenever you get up, drink some water.
Do you see a theme here? Blogging equals sitting, long sitting isn’t good for you: you need to move.
If you don’t have an exercise program, create one today. It can be simple. Get up a little earlier, and go for a walk or a swim. It doesn’t matter what kind of activity you do, as long as you work up a sweat, and work out regularly. You need to exercise every single day.
No time? You don’t need a lot of time. Ten minutes is fine in the beginning. Work up to exercising for half an hour daily, over a period of weeks.
Not only does regular exercise purge stress hormones from your body, but it also improves your mood, and improves your sleep too.
It takes a while to develop an exercise habit. The good news is, if you workout religiously for several months, you’ve now built up a new habit. Your body will begin to crave exercise, and you’ll enjoy it.
Whatever your reasons for blogging, it’s vital that you’re in good health. Develop an exercise program today. It will make you a better blogger. You can make blogging both FUN and profitable.
