Better Doesn’t Always Feel Better – The Process of Improvement

Sometimes to improve, we have to first take a step backwards.

Change is rarely easy, and even when we make a change that will eventually help us improve it does not always feel better right away or create an immediate improvement.

In the moment, it will always feel easier to do what is familiar, and specifically to riding, our brain can trick us into feeling as though we are sitting level, using our reins equally, etc.

When we make a change, it may feel awkward, and it is easy to revert to old patterns and second guess if the change is even worth making. But this period of discomfort is necessary and the more we can understand the process through which change happens the easier it becomes to see it through.

In the video below, I will explain three reasons why better may not feel better and how to tell if the change you are making is right.
