How to Navigate the Fitness Industry During Eating Disorder Recovery

I’m nailing 12–13 hour workdays these days and getting the maximum done without burning out. Here are some of the things I’m following—

  • I start working very early in the morning. Usually, 4–4:30 am.
    • So by the time people wake up I’ve already completed a lot of things.
  • I have a biphasic sleep schedule (3.5hours in the night, 2.5hours during the day) so I get more productive hours every day.
  • Watching series and movies are also work for me (perks of writing for web-series) So when I’m running out of ideas, I take a short 15–20 min. breaks in which I watch one of the many series I’m watching currently, depending on the genre I’m writing on.
  • I don’t waste time— even when I’m at the barber’s or out shopping. I’m constantly working on the stories for the episodes I’m writing at that point in my mind.
  • I take super-long drives when I’m feeling worked up, usually in the evening to watch the sunset from a deserted road with a nice view. I play my fav songs, sing to them loudly while I drive. It helps me relax.
  • Whenever I’m feeling stuck in a rut or out of ideas, I take a bath (usually 3–4 times a day), change my clothes, and then sit down to write, feeling all fresh and in the right frame of mind.

And this— the planner.

This is my savior. I write the tasks for the day and create a rough schedule and time slots for them.

People make schedules all the time. But what has been helpful for me is targeting 80% completion at the least, keeping it flexible, and going through it, again and again, to keep on reminding myself of all the things I still need to do.

Works like a charm 🙂
