On what I stated in this post: The same rules apply not only for creative endeavors, but life in general. When creative, energetic, passionate people dedicate copious amounts of their time to expression it's easy to get so caught up in the whirlwind that you forget to take care of yourself. When that happens it affects every aspect of your life, whether you realize it or not.
It's an easy trap to fall into -- ignoring your own needs in favor of trying to accomplish too much at once. This is not to get all self-help, preachy on everyone, but just to state that whatever your creative drug of choice, and whatever your status in life, you're no good to your endeavors, others or yourself if you don't look out for your own well being.
