How often should we be practicing?
This question seems to come up quite frequently.
As much as we like to be told exactly what and when, unfortunately it's not quite so simple.
Firstly, why are we practicing in the first place?
If you want to feel stronger, fitter, more mentally alert and emotionally stable, you will have to find the right weekly input and rhythm that will work for you to achieve this. This varies person to person for many reasons.
The bottom line is, give and take a few factors, we get out what we put in. So make an effort and you will see some result.
In the final analysis, practices like Tai Ji, Yoga, Meditation and so on are more a mind state than anything else. Our core beliefs, attitudes, feelings and physical actions will operate to roll out how we gradually gain and benefit or go round in circles or just fall off completely.
These kinds of practices are currently popular, so many folk may just be in it because everyone is doing it. We may want to ask ourselves the question, how real is this for me? Is it really meaningful? and so on.
