Creative Type Meets “Exercise”


Okay, so we all know that those of us who have been called “the creative type” are not very orderly.  I’ll agree that my studio and office are messy.  Tending to turn on a dime and change my mind when something new pops up, I never really tried to be “disciplined” or regulated, except on the job where my paycheck is involved.  I prefer an open schedule, a don’t-tell-me-what-to-do day.  Therefore, exercise hasn’t really worked out well for me.  Its a “discipline.”

“You have to exercise three to four times a week to strengthen your bones,” says my doctor.  Oh, NO!  I do not like to sweat and I can never stick to any kind of exercise program.  So, stay with me here, I’m going to have to figure it out.  I’m a creative thinker.  I can solve this dramatically “life-changing” directive from an expert.

My thought process, like an experiment, begins here.  First, some appropriate clothes:  shopping, of course!  Second, the right frame of mind: meditation.  Third, something fun and easy that will make me sweat and still stay with the program:  Zumba and Yoga.  Yes, I think I can do that.  Sounds fun, right?  Fourth, making the time:  a schedule.  Rats!  Now that is the hard part.  I’ll let you know if this potentially great lifestyle change works out for me.  Honestly, this will not be easy.  Can a new dimension be sculpted into my multi-faceted personality?  Sure!  Never underestimate the creative type.  We wouldn’t be artists if we let negative thinking stop us from manipulating the physical substances of our world.
