At the beginning of November, I came up with this #30daysofexcuses challenge. The idea is to track whether or not you practise every day for a month (or it can be any other good habit!), and see what excuses you tell yourself on the days that you don’t practise.
I’m doing the challenge with a bunch of other people on Instagram in November, but for those who were ‘late to the party’ or want to keep it up next month, I will make a December calendar!
All you need to do is sign up below and I’ll send you the template for the December calendar when it’s finished. Maybe I’ll do a fun Christmassy theme.
By the way, the idea of this challenge is NOT to bully yourself into practising! It’s also about becoming aware of all the things going on in our lives and paying them some mindful attention before deciding whether or not to practise anyway.
As James Clear says:
‘Be forgiving with your past self. Be strict with your present self. Be flexible with your future self.’
And don’t forget to be kind to all three. Compassionate discipline is the way to go.
