Too Much Practice

It is always good to have opportunities to practice our skills, right? The fact that I say ‘always’should set off an alarm that something is not right with the previous sentence. Very few things in life exist in extremes, words like ‘always’ and ‘never’ rarely apply to life. Even a stopped 12-hour analog clock is right twice a day, but that is not the point of this article.

While finding opportunities to practice our skills in our day-to-day lives is important and helpful, there is such a thing as ‘too much of a good thing’. If we are going through a period where we find ourselves with opportunity after opportunity to practice our skills, we need to look for ways to change our environment safely and wisely.

Environments that are constantly providing us with these opportunities are unhealthy environments. The constant barrage of triggering events and stress begin to take there toll on us. Even a person that is not a different thinker has their breaking point, there is only so much anyone can take art any given time. We each have a unique breaking point.

Right now I am going through a period like this. Between work and home I am getting plenty of chances to practice my skills; however, it is starting to take its toll on me. I would love to have less chances for a while.

If you are not in a position to change your environment safely and wisely, then you need to find ways to mitigate the stress and impact on you. Make sure you take care of yourself by eating right, getting enough sleep and exercising. There is such a thing as too many opportunities at any given time.

I can really relate to what you’re saying here. It’s so important to take care of ourselves. It seems impossible to alleviate most of the stressors in my life right now, and it was affecting me physically. I realized I had to refocus and make more of an effort at self-care.
