    I’ve decided to save up some money to hire an instructor. It’s getting kind of tiring to have to share my progress with the people taking the same course, and I think having an instructor or a coach to go with the online course I have will make things easier to understand. The instructor will be there to evaluate my progress and see if I am doing well or poorly.

    That’s also as much money as I can spend. The instructor will be around during the weekends so during the weekdays I’ll stick with the online course.

    I’ve never actually thought that meditation can be part of someone’s normal day. :O I’m interested in how the progress goes and what the results are for you.

    I bought a drum practice course and I keep a list of drum tutorials on my phone handy so I can go through them one by one and clear them. I won’t have to work too hard to figure out how to practice.

    I can avoid getting distracted while looking at the tutorials by downloading them in advance and turning the wifi off before I practice.

    Thanks. 🙂 Maybe I’ll post a recording or two.

    I start my exercise with a warm-up exercise that looks like this:

    http://www.freedrumlessons.com/drum-lessons/drum-set-warmups.php

    It’s the first step to my habit and it gets me to proceed to the rest of the practice.

    My mantra is: I don’t forego my drumming practice.

    I start my habit at 5 PM after work. As soon as I change into better clothes I go to the room where my drums are placed and start practising. I have a calendar that I got from Amazon that I mark every time I get my habit done.

    I have my morning routines and I prepare dinner every evening so I can also tie my habit after or before them depending on the situation. During the weekends, since I don’t have work, I can practice after those times instead since during the weekdays’ work is meant to be tied to those habits.

    The smallest way I can start my habits is to repeat whatever I learned or practised in the previous day for about 30 minutes. I’ll start practising at around 5 PM so that I know people aren’t sleeping and I’m not disturbing anybody.
    I’ll increase my practice time for 5 minutes every week until I have practice sessions that last 3 hours long. Depending on how my neighbours react, I may need to split the practice sets to morning and afternoon sets. I think 3 hours a day is the most I can do, but I wouldn’t really know yet as I’ve really just started.
