In the midst of all the writing and everything that we are doing every day, it is easy to slip into what I like to call new mom mode. You get so caught up in all the new fantastic responsibilities and the person who is in charge of it all is neglected.
When we are writing and excited about our stories, it is essential we remember the importance of keeping ourselves healthy and human. We need to remember that we aren't just story writing robots who, as long as we are plugged in, will keep producing.
When under a crunch, I find if I will make myself eat really well, I can handle the stress better (and my pants still fit on the flip side). If I make time to get my heart rate up a few times a week, I feel better. And if I don't get enough sleep, I'm done for.
What do you do to make sure you are taking care of you?
