I usually start my day with a quick yoga session.
This session isn’t always pleasant. My body is built stiffer than an English aristocrat’s upper lip and stretching it is painful – more so early in the morning.
When I wake up, I am often not in the mood to do my yoga routine. However, a couple of asanas in, my mood changes from reluctance to enthusiasm. I go through the rest of the routine without a second thought.
We often fool ourselves into waiting for the right mood to strike. Act first, for it is the action that leads and the mood that follows.
