How will this support my mindfulness practice?

Until I learned to ask the question, “how will this support my mindfulness practice” in everything I do, I had a really frustrating time. In fact, I had two patterns that drove me crazy.First, I’d practice with great enthusiasm for three or four days and get some momentum. Then I’d tail off, forgetting my meditation for three or four days, and falling into old habits instead. I’d hit a low and feel discouraged. Then finally I’d think to myself “Okay, I’ve got to get back to it!” and then restart a frustrating cycle that never seemed to shift.
