Power of Frequency

Basics but important, I reckon.

Of course, the more you do or try something the better you’ll get at that thing.

One nuance I’m realising, which makes me smile, is that a little bit, often, makes the difference.

E.g. After early morning meditation and Qi Gong, then do pilates exercises.

Key point though, don’t try and do lots, just start doing it often. Every day 1 minute is was better than once a week 10 minutes.

Sure, by that maths the once a week gets more minutes in. But the 7 x 1 minute gives you 6 times more of more important bits: remembering to do it (it can be anything, right?), feeling good about doing it, building it into your routine, making a habit of it.

Those elements listed above are more important, much more important and helpful, than 3 extra minutes.

Hope useful.

Much love to everyone, thanks for reading.

Hot thoughts diary

One thing regularly recommended is to keep a ‘hot thoughts’ diary.

I tried this ineffectually a few times, and then finally years later realised how a good way to work it might be. There are many others, I’m sure.

My version worked this way:

1. Try and write regularly, with a specific aim. Be honest, otherwise it is a bit pointless.

2. Be thoroughly encouraged by writing stuff down. Know that later this effort will be worthwhile and helpful.

3. Look back over, and think about how better you could write in the coming days, so you can adjust how brave and honest you are prepared to be. Use a (green) highlighter if you want.

4. Write something to summarise, and take stock.

5. Keep writing, even when the immediate ‘issue’ has calmed down.

6. Build mindfulness formal practice and this hot thoughts into a regular routine.
