I admit; I’m tired right now.
I woke at 6:30 AM to walk the dogs for 40 minutes at the beach here in New Zealand.
After working for 6 hours and recording an hour long podcast with my friend Alonzo Pichardo I ran the dogs again for 40 minutes, sprinting through the surf.
I feel tuckered out.
But I have no issues writing this blog post.
Most bloggers and authors have a terrible time writing content if their body feels fatigued. Virtually all writers struggle to write content if their mind feels fatigued, worried, hurried, rushed or anxious.

Become crazy prolific by leaving this state of mind behind….for good.
1: Invest in Resources from Prolific Writers

Get inside the minds of prolific bloggers to leave writer’s burnout behind.
Feel refreshed and energized every day by following their advice.
2: Get Enough Sleep
You cannot generate writing ideas if you don’t get ample sleep. Taking care of your body is critical if you want to think straight.
Sleep for 7-8 hours daily.
After writing this post I’ll take a short nap. By tomorrow morning I’ll have 8 hours of sleep in the books, between naps and overnight sleep.
Sleeping recharges your body and refreshes your mind, 2 critical elements for avoiding writer’s burnout.
Feeling burned out indicates you allowed fear to call the shots for way too long. If you vibe mainly from fear for days or weeks you are guaranteed to burn out and struggle like hell.
Meditation expands your awareness, helping you face, embrace, feel and release your fears.
Meditating regularly helped me feel and release fears so I could proceed from an energized, prolific, creative energy, life-wise and writing-wise.
Meditate for 5 to 10 minutes daily. Sit in quiet. Relax your mind. Relax your focus.
Focus on your breathing. If your attention wanders, note the object of your attention – thought or feeling or sensation – then move your focus back to your breath.
This simple practice helps you see and feel your thoughts and feelings clearly, aiding you in resting when it’s time to rest and writing when it’s time to write.
4: Write 500 Words Daily in a Word Document
Improve your writing skills.
Skilled, clear, confident writers rarely burn out because when it’s time to write, words flow.
Words flowed the moment I sat down to write this blog post. No writer’s block. No writer’s burnout. I calmly and confidently wrote the post in easy, peaceful fashion.
If you practice any skill you become really good at the skill and act habitually when engaging in that area of your life.
Write, write and write some more. Open a Word document. Write 500 words. Every day. Trash the document after you hit your 500 word limit to detach from your writing creations, helping you create from an abundant, detached space.
A physical weakling sees their body burnout and break down because they never train their body.
A writing weakling runs into writer’s block and writer’s burn out because they never practice writing.
