feelgood factor: Nicholas Saunders
Friday 04 August 1995
When I first get up I feel really drowsy, but after 15 minutes of dancing I feel wonderfully exhilarated. All my energy is flowing. I started forcing myself to dance in the morning after setting up the computer business in Neal's Yard, London. After months of doing very physical work, I was spending more and more time just sitting down. I felt I was wasting away.
I had to force myself into dancing at first, but now I can't start the day without it. I don't do any particular kind of dancing, I just fling myself around. To start off, it's pretty slow and not very fluid, but as I get going it gets looser and freer. Still, it's nothing like dancing on ecstasy - the most amazing kind of exercise there is."
