When I haven’t done an activity in a while, I like to keep repeating that same activity until it becomes more familiar and comfortable.
The same goes for mental tasks. Something I used to struggle with was having difficult conversations. It’s never easy or fun, but if you keep having them they get easier and you start to feel more comfortable having them. This past year I’ve had to make a lot of hard decisions and conversation but I’m starting to feel more comfortable with it. I’m telling you about this because it’s important to challenge yourself.
Starting this Monday I’m beginning one of these activities again. I’m going to start drawing a little doodle each day based on what I write about to improve my traditional art skills. They’re lacking and need improvement but not for long.
