Casting on? Tackling a large number of stitches and fretting over the size of the task. Fear not, break it down into small tasks (e.g. 50 stitches at a time). Make this an opportunity to enjoy and express gratitude for the chance to spend time with your knitting.
Here's a great question to ask yourself...are you approaching _________ (fill in the blank, could be casting on, could be your day, a walk, a conversation with someone) as an operation or an opportunity? For example...
Are you approaching casting on as an opportunity (to reflect, slow down, appreciate the time you have to knit) or an operation (let's hurry up and get this done so I can get on to the next task)?
I have found this a very helpful question to use throughout the day.
