There is an ancient tradition where first thing of each day you wake and get in to the sacred pools that surround the temples.
The water is cold and as a result blood rushes deep within you and starts to flush out toxins, kick starts your digestive, lymphatic and nervous system.
This drastically improves circulation as well as leaving you feeling fresh, bright and energised.
After this brief encounter you have won your first battle of the day and are strengthened moving forward.
The point is that when we do things we wouldn’t naturally do, we often benefit both mentally and physically.
The modern version is to jump straight in to a cold shower for a few minutes after waking up.
I’m going to get my first victory early on tomorrow…
