First, I’m in month 11 of doing it and I only found the joy in it around month 6. Before then wasn’t bad, but it took experience to kick in. Experience is the only way we change behavior.

Next, I started doing it partly because I used to spend 30 minutes or more lying in bed before getting up. Sometimes an hour. I told myself I was meditating, which I knew was just a story I was telling myself.
