How do you stay on target and motivated in your dance training?
I love scheduling.
I’m a list maker so scheduling (and checking off that to do list) is in my nature. So one way I stay on track and motivated is scheduling my training. I do it every Sunday night for the following week.
Scheduling and setting my weekly goals gives me clarity, keeps me on track, and I love seeing my progress! Plus I don’t have to think about what I need to do or when because I’ve already set it (and I don’t have time to talk myself out of it 😋) .
This is my 9th week returning to my dance training. I hadn’t danced in 4 years! What’s been so motivating is seeing my progress from week to week.
Week 1 I could barely push out an hour a day. Now I’m up to 6 hours and returned to pointe work 🩰 2 weeks ago.
There’s def. been some ups and downs and discouraging thoughts. Even some tears shed and some doubts…And sometimes I don’t hit all that’s on my schedule, but seeing the progress I make (no matter how small) keeps me encouraged to keep going and keep moving forward.
So plan out your training! And watch your progress!
