To become more artistically and mentally fit, first focus on becoming physically fit.
Art creation requires strong muscles
Consider: if you’re a painter, you require strong arms. As a photographer, you require strong legs and stamina.
Art creation and human metabolism
In order to create art and have sustained strength and focus, you need a strong human metabolism. How to improve our human metabolism? More muscle mass, less body fat.
For example I’ve done a recent self experimentation which involves intermittent fasting, ketogenic diet, and putting on more muscle mass (while lowering bodyfat percentage), and abstinence from sugars and carbs:
I’ve become more confident, productive, prolific, focused, and powerful as an artist, writer, photographer and creator.
Therefore as a simple idea— if your goal is to improve yourself as an artist, seek to:
- Master your metabolism
- Experiment with ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting
- Abstain from sugar and carbs
- Lift weights (powerlifting)
- Sleep a ton (8-12 hours a night)— prioritize this above all.
I can guarantee this will improve your metabolism, focus, power, and art creation.
