It certainly beats rearranging schedules to fit in a round of golf or even a jogging session! Apart from this, Tai Chi can be practiced in a relatively small area, with no special equipment or companion. Your office, bedroom, lounge, patio, garden - just about any open space of 15 meters square can be used for Tai Chi. Therefore, it can be practiced in your own home, at practically any time, with minimal expense and by yourself. Most importantly, you always feel good, relaxed, refreshed and invigorated after a Tai Chi session.
But remember that you do not practice Tai Chi when you suffer an acute illness like influenza or diarrhea. It is better and safer to resume practice after your recovery. Although you do not require any special equipment, you should always use a pair of flat-soled shoes during practice to avoid injury to your soles. A soft, loose, sweat-absorbing shirt and loose, baggy pants will be an asset as they permit free movement. Avoid using skin-tight pants and shirts during practice - these do not only hamper blood circulation, they also cause discomfort. For the same reasons, tight-fitting rings should be taken off before practice.
