I’ve started classes but I’m struggling with keeping up regular practice at home
We all know that feeling, we’ve started a new hobby, a new routine, a new something that we think is good for us but then we just stop doing it. It starts with these sorts of thoughts:
- I’m feeling a bit down today, I don’t think I have the energy to do…..
- I’ve been run off my feet today I just want to sit down, I don’t have time to…
- I’m feeling a bit under the weather today, I think I’ll skip….
- I just can’t be bothered missing one session today won’t hurt.
Know what I mean? Do you do this? I do regularly which is why I have so many uncompleted projects and abandoned hobbies at home. Something else always gets in the way. So how can we help ourselves to prevent these self-sabotaging thoughts….
