Primarily, this gave me the confidence I needed to stay motivated and interested in the course. Further, I used this connection to help develop a better understanding of myself during the course. I often refer to mindfulness practice as the art of introspection. In my practice, I observe my thoughts and emotions by waiting for them to arise. In this course, we somewhat forced emotions to arise.

The first and foremost problem for me was related to effective management of time in the completion of various activities related to the context.
