    To stay disciplined I prioritize the time for the activity and work on it actively, set it some reminders that help me remember even when I’m not ready to do it or practice it.

      Timers and scheduling tasks are a really good idea! It’s also easy to become frustrated when kids or life interrupt that specific timeframe. I’ve learned to set up “margin” in my schedule each day and week to ensure there is “buffer time.”

      So, for example, I set aside 5:30 – 6:30am for writing, but sometimes my kids wake up around 6, cutting my writing time short. I have built-in a buffer time for tasks that often get interrupted from 8 – 8:45pm most evenings and an additional hour on Saturday mornings while the kids watch their favorite cartoon.

      The funny thing is that I have had to use that buffer time EVERY DAY for the last few months and have tended to work on catching up tasks until bedtime. So, I guess my “buffer time” is really just “work time” now. 😅
