It is important for me to have a morning taiji practice session. I practice a certain number of yilus, they count towards a goal that I set. The latest goal is 50,000 yilus. Getting a few yilus done in the morning (currently 5) though is only 0.5% towards the goal, it is quantifiable and real. It gives me a sense of accomplishment right at the beginning of each day, and equips me to face the challenges for the rest of the day. This is a reminder for me not to skip the morning practice.
