Ask questions as you practice. Don’t worry about the answer. The question brings awareness to what you’re doing.
Ask questions before, during and after a practice session
- Asking questions before a session will prepare you, helping you to focus.
- Asking questions during a session will keep you engaged with the practice.
- Asking questions after will help you to reflect. This will make for a more productive (and fun) session tomorrow.
