sympathy with morning and spring
...Thoreau's Journal: 25-Feb-1859

Measure your health by your sympathy with morning and spring. If there is no response in you to the awakening of nature,—if the prospect of an early morning walk does not banish sleep, if the warble of the first bluebird does not thrill you,—know that the morning and the spring of your life are past. Thus may you feel your pulse.

I returned from a foreign travel and find myself waking up at 5am because of the time change. I used to wake up around 7:30am and rush straight to work with hardly any notice of the morning.....

what a difference and increase of the quality to me life. You don't need to be bathing in the glow of a TV at night. You should be in bed and wake up with the sun.

This fulfills my soul.
