Practicing mindfulness, initially, has been more of a challenge than the water and sleep quotas ... Practicing mindfulness halfway through the 'challenge' presents yet another opportunity.
Whether or not you agree with this particular challenge being more difficult than another... what I'd like you to notice is the way Darryl framed the issue. As an "opportunity" rather than a struggle. Not something to endure or to get through... but something that, if embraced, could potentially lead to unknown positive results. An optimistic and lighter way to look at something that might not be easy to do. I wonder if I can look at other things that come up during the day as opportunities rather than stresses or complications. After all, these practices (no sugar intake, heavy weights overhead, enough sleep) are not intended to make life more stressful...but rather, to make life BETTER.
