Making Time for Practice

To really get the most out of your training it is important that you make some time for yourself to practice - preferably first thing in the morning. The thing that amazes me is peoples reaction when I say that you need to practice - I am not talking about hours just 15 minutes a day - All you have to do is get out of bed a bit earlier but honestly, you would think I were asking them to go and find the Holy Grail - I am often told 'I can't make time. I have too much to do.' Surely the whole idea of Tai Chi and Chi Kung is that you get to spend some quality time with yourself - you should find it a pleasant experience and it really sets you up for the working day ahead.
Several years ago I had two students start Tai Chi classes at the same time; one of them was becoming really angry because the other person was remembering the form and was making good headway while he was really struggling - I asked the 'good' student how often he practised and he said 'every day' and I asked the other how often he practised and he replied 'Oh, I don't have time for that' and I told him that although it wasn't what he wanted to hear that was the root cause of the problem - Like I say, it wasn't what he wanted to hear and he didn't last very much longer in my class.
So, Make time for yourself to do just a little practice everyday you will be amazed at the result!!!
