This Week In Writing, we get out of the heat and explore yoga as a wellness strategy for creativity and mindfulness.

Today is the Summer Solstice and, while I learned my lesson about trying to explain the science of the Solstice, I do know it marks the official start of the Summer. Here in Orlando, it’s felt like summer for weeks. As I write this, the high for today is 97°F/36.1°C. That’s hot. So hot, in fact, that I tend to spend most of my time indoors.
Prior to the onslaught of summer-like heat, I was walking daily. Not only was it a great wellness strategy, but it boost my creativity by giving my mind space to wander. Since walking through nearly 100% humidity isn’t my idea of stimulating, I’ve returned to yoga. Thanks to Apple Fitness, I have access to great yoga and meditation courses whenever I need a break.
Not only does yoga help my fitness, but it also helps my overall wellbeing. My mind is clearer and I always feel more creative after practicing. Since today also happens to be International Yoga Day, it’s a fitting chance to see if yoga is a good option for your own writing wellbeing.
How do you stay physically active and mentally clear during the heat of the summer? Hit reply and let me know.

Hello writers! Do you use a specific app to write in?

I personally use iAWriter and Pages. But I’m curious to know what else is out there.
