A grueling work schedule has made it harder to practice, lately. I have found, if I don't sit in the morning, that's it, I will not practice that day, at least not formally. Carving the time in the morning has become essential. Last night, I set my alarm thirty minutes early so I would get a chance to sit before the day takes over.
Remembering the benefits from practice and what happens when I don't, has been a key motivator.
Do you TAKE the time to practice?
