Don’t want to practice today? No problem, since you should already keep a notebook or journal handy in your practice room.
On the days you will be practicing:
Just before practicing, jot down a sentence or two about your goals for the session. That’s always a good idea.
If you’re thinking: “I’m not going to practice today,”
Simply write the following in the journal: “I’ve decided I won’t be practicing today.”
Now release any guilt or non productive emotions and go about your day.
Now at least you’ve made a clear choice, and brought a greater degree of mindfulness to your practice. Pay attention to your practice journal over time, and see what happens.
