When You’re Not Practicing

When you practice, it's not all about what you're doing in the moment. It's also what happens after.

For example, when you practice meditation. It's not just about the 10-minutes of disconnecting from the world. It's also about feeling more relaxed for hours afterwards.

Or when you practice the piano. It's more than making progress on your pieces for those 30 minutes. But also the confidence of knowing you're sticking to a practice routine. Experiencing the joy of building a skill over time.

Or when you exercise. The thirty minutes of discomfort is the price you pay to get to feel better all day long.

Practicing is about more than just practicing. It's also about how you get to feel during all those hours you're not practicing.
