See the 61

When you break an habit, particularly when it is still just an attempt to establish an habit, the tendency is to just give up the whole thing.

Perhaps you have medidated daily for two months, but then for a couple of days in a row you could not find any time to sit down and breathe. Most people would really struggle to go back to regular mediation. Despite the score being 61 to 2. That’s because we focus more on the streak than on the act itself. Once again, destination versus journey.

So when that happens, when you are breaking an habit, do not forget the work you have put in, the doing and the effort, the experience you have accumulated, the feeling of accomplishment. Going back to it is not so impossible if what you see is the 61.
