Default Shifting Question Manual

I have a 2006 6 speed manual and lately I am finding it harder to down shift. It takes some force to make the shift. Like if I was going from 6th to 3rd at 60 mph. it also happens at lower speeds just down shifting 1 gear. Any comments would be welcome.

Are you rev matching as you're downshifting?

From 6th to 3rd at 60mph it'd be pretty hard to just jam it into gear without rev matching or double clutching IMHO, and the rear tires could lock up. I wouldn't do that on my car without either of the two aforementioned methods
