Content creators need to sit in front of a blank page for most of their lives. Whether you edit videos or articles, the creative process will always last shorter than the refining. And if you don’t have the money to hire an editor, you will spend most of your life sitting until you start having some success.
But if you spend most of your life sitting, it will be impossible to take care of your shape.
So I decided to study a method to keep my shape while still doing something for my content creation side hustle. And that’s when I came up with the idea of a creative run.
A creative run is a three-step process that allows content creators, or creatives, to maintain their physical shape even with such an immobile job. Therefore, it provides content creators with two advantages:
But the best advantage is the simplicity of the method. You don’t need to pay a monthly fee as it is for gyms. You only need a smartphone, a pair of comfortable earphones, and a little motivational push.
Doing something for our health is always tough in the beginning. Going to the gym, working out, and eating healthy are all behaviors that come with pain and difficulties.
You can decide to go running twice a week, or every day. Each of us has different necessities and free time. So it doesn’t matter how many repetitions your running schedule includes. Once you define a one, pledge to keep it.
Podcasts have the great advantage that you can only listen to them. So they fit perfectly the purpose of working out while not feeling guilty because you are not taking care of your business.
What matters is that you find the topics of the podcast interesting. This way, each episode has the potential to trigger your curiosity and therefore establish a connection with your creative part.
According to Healthline, it takes 18 and 254 days to form a habit. On average, after 66 days, a behavior becomes automatic.
For some people, it can take less. For some people, more. But if you try to stick to the creative run for at least two months, you will be more likely to transform it into a habit.
If you are a content creator struggling to remain in shape, this was my advice. A simple technique that helped me work out even when I was busy building my content creation business.
Hence, if you want to try out the creative run, follow these 3 steps:

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
