You are busy, you’re making late hours, you’re weekends are full, and you’re just too tired. The moment you finally can sit down to relax, it’s hard to pick up the guitar. You really love playing, but at the end of the day you’re worn out.
Feeling tired after a hard days work is a reality, no doubt about it, but somewhere in that tired feeling there is also a part of the story you are telling yourself. Often when we feel too tired to do something and we do it anyway the story and the feeling disappears.
Especially when you start doing something that will make you feel better when you do it like exercise or playing guitar.
So, along with this knowledge you also need a trigger that makes you want to pick up your guitar.
Again, it all has to do with the story you tell yourself.
The moment you come home from work and sit down, start to be aware of your thoughts and the inevitable excuses your mind is going to make up to escape practicing.
Stop those thoughts immediately! They are just lazy thoughts, banish ‘m.
It could also be that you aren’t thinking about practicing at all, because of everything else in your life that comes first, like making dinner, errands, kids, homework, temptations and distractions.
