Essay Writing Tips #9: Take Care of Your Body

Welcome back to my series on my best essay writing tips ever. In the last part of this blog series on my best essay writing tips, I talked about the plagiarism detector. Today, we’re talking not about your mind but your body. We can’t all be Krang, subsisting entirely as brains in glass domes. And to do our best brain-ing, we have to take care of our bodies.

Don’t sacrifice sleep for writing unless you absolutely can’t help it.

We’ve all been there: it’s 3 AM, and you’re just about finished with your college essay. You’re so close to being done, but you can’t quite seem to make the words come together. So you decide to sacrifice a few hours of sleep in order to get the essay done. After all, it’s not like you have anything better to do with your time. Right? WRONG. Sleep is essential for maintaining your health, both mental and physical. Without enough sleep, you’ll be more likely to get sick, have trouble concentrating, and feel cranky and irritable. So if you’re going to sacrifice something for your college essay, make sure it isn’t sleep! Take it from me, a person who is writing this blog entry at 2 AM!

Eat healthy while writing. Nourish your brain with healthy food instead of convenience crap.

As any professional essay writer knows, the creative process can be a messy one. You never know when inspiration or the apocalypse will strike, so it’s important to be prepared at all times. That means stocking your pantry with all the essential writing supplies: coffee, beer, chocolate, and of course, junk food. After all, what better way to fuel those late-night writing sessions than with a greasy pizza or a pint of ice cream? And who has time to cook a healthy meal when there’s a deadline looming? Certainly not this writer! So if you want to be as successful as possible, follow my lead and stock up on junk food. Your brain will thank you for it.

…OK, not really. Go for some granola, and fruit, or other super-healthy food to help you as you write. And give yourself a treat when you’re done. It’s boring, but you will have a long, long life ahead of you to get up at dawn and do things like run 10k’s while subsisting entirely on quinoa and resenting me for setting you on that 10k-long path with a blog article about eating healthy while writing your college essays. Well, friend, the joke will be on me, because while you’re some kind of vegan superhero subsisting entirely on spite, I will be long dead after consuming my entire, considerable body weight in Doritos.

Drink lots of water – dehydration can cause headaches and make it difficult to focus.

Essay writing can be a real headache – especially if you’re not properly hydrated. Dehydration can cause all sorts of problems, from headaches and dizziness to difficulty concentrating. That’s why it’s important to drink lots of water when you’re essay writing. It’ll help you stay focused and alert, and will prevent those pesky headaches from setting in. So next time you sit down to write an essay, make sure you have a tall glass of water at your side. Your brain will thank you for it.

Exercise regularly – being active releases endorphins that can help improve your mood and concentration. Take breaks and do stretches, sit-ups, or pushups.

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s more important than ever to find ways to relax and de-stress. One of the best ways to do this is by exercising regularly. That’s right, breaking a sweat can help to improve your mood and concentration. Of course, it’s important to take breaks from time to time and do some stretching, sit-ups, or pushups. But the key is to make sure that you’re getting enough exercise. So get up and get moving! Your mind will thank you for it.

Take breaks often to move around, get some fresh air, and drink more water

We all know the drill: we’re supposed to take breaks often, get up and move around, and drink more water. But who has the time? I mean, there’s so much work to be done! And sitting at a desk all day is just so comfortable. Besides, those office chairs are really expensive – you don’t want to ruin them by getting up and moving around too much. And water? Who needs that? Coffee is way more energizing.

Seriously though, it is important to take care of yourself while working. If you don’t, you’ll end up feeling exhausted, stressed, and maybe even sick. So take a few minutes every few hours to get up and move around. Go outside for a breath of fresh air. And drink some water – your body will thank you for it. Your work will be better for it too. Trust me, it’s worth it.

If possible, try to write in a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed

It’s well known that the best place to write is in a quiet, uninterrupted setting. That’s why so many people choose to write in the middle of a crowded cafe, with screaming children and clattering dishes all around them. After all, there’s nothing like the sound of constant distractions to help you focus on your work! If you’re hoping to get some writing done, it’s best to find the noisiest, most chaotic place you can – that way, you can be sure that you won’t be able to get a single word down. So if you’re looking for a good writing environment, make sure to choose a location that will give you plenty of opportunities to be interrupted. That way, you can be sure that your work will really suffer. After all, suffering is art, isn’t it?

If you’re looking for a way to make your writing process even more difficult, be sure to follow all of these helpful tips! By following this advice, you’ll be well on your way to becoming a prolific, healthy writer (and a very boring, insufferably smug person). Just don’t forget to get plenty of sleep and eat a balanced diet – otherwise, you may find it difficult to focus. And don’t forget to take breaks often so you can move around and drink lots of water. Who knows, maybe by following all of these guidelines you’ll actually be able to produce some decent work. We can only hope…
