I copy this post over to my new blog in the middle of a three-month break from my regular routine of daily practice. Living farther from ATUS and dedicating a lot of my time to the apartment renovation, I've told myself it's okay to go easy for a few months. The hope is that once the apartment is in better shape, I'll be an even better practicer. Let's see if I can prove that true!

I have come to feel that practice presents profound lifestyle challenges. My success or failure at maintaining effective, daily practice is like a measure of my health. When everything in my life is working well, I’m a good practicer. The essay lists some of the tricks that have helped me thus far.
