I chose "Physical Woman" because I already was seeing the need for writers and artists to have a routine of physical activity. Conditioning and playing tennis were also an important part of my lifestyle.
"If you have your health, you have everything," my mother often told me.
As with most other things, my mother was right.
Since the mid-1980s, I have kept on a regular schedule of exercise--step aerobics three times a week and tennis three times each week as well. Writers do a lot of sitting in front of their computers, so we need the physical break. I've found if you keep up a routine, you are less likely to break it. My fitness routine has helped me stay in good physical condition.
Although you may need to give up some writing or painting time, nothing is more important than good health. For me, fitness makes the cut.
