Here we'll take a look at an example practice session, and consider a few pointers on how to warm up consciously and optimize your time in the chair with your guitar.

Spend 2 minutes warming up your left hand with slow chord changes, then spend 2 minutes warming up your right hand (using one or no chord, play a strum or picking pattern and give it a few repetitions without thinking about your right/chord hand).

Start with accuracy (slow) and then push towards continuity (up to tempo). Alternate between mindful practice and just playing for fun/love/self expression.
