Getting Practice Started
I’ve been a long-time advocate of having a dedicated practice space to help establish regular practice. I have my room with the carpets and music all there and a set of practice clothes ready to put on. For the past couple of weeks I also left my mat unfurled in the middle of the room so I could just walk in and get to it, but this turned out to be a bit too much readiness, as if the room was too eager and pushy.
I’ve gone back to unfurling the mat to begin and furling it up at the end. This is the right amount of ritual. A gentle transition.
How about you? What gets you started?
