I find that with any activity I take on for enjoyment alone, the natural tendency is to give it the lowest priority after first attending to all the work and chores. That means that too often I'm too tired to give it importance at the end of a busy day, and I wind up skipping it.
I've learned that I must carve out the time for practicing the things i love and schedule it right into my day, rather than as an afterthought. Even if it's only ten minutes, I must make the time to do my music or art or other hobby, giving it the same importance as I give to work or the other items on my "to do" list for each day. Doesn't really matter if I make any creative advances that day, it's often just the act of doing or 'honoring it' that benefits me. Whenever i carve out that 15 minutes or so in a normal or in a hectic day, I have never regretted it.
Those irritated by grain of sand best avoid beach.
