Momentum is a strange bird. When you have it, you know it. When you don’t, you don’t care.
I stunk at science in school. The only C I ever got was in science. Still, as a trained observer of life, I heartily agree with the principle of inertia, and find it applies nicely to health and wellness.
A body at rest tends to stay at rest.
A body in motion tends to stay in motion.
Yep. That pretty much sums it up.
So much of my practice is helping clients overcome inertia. Inertia, I have found, comes in many forms. Sometimes it is physical. Sometimes it is emotional. Sometimes it is mental. Sometimes it is spiritual.
Sometimes it is all of the above.
Regardless, the first step is the hardest. It requires the most effort. It requires the most energy. It requires courage. Sometimes it requires anger.
It requires silencing the inner critic that whispers “it is too hard” or “you can’t do it” or “it’s not worth it.”
BUT—and this is the glorious part—if you can just take a teensy baby step. then another teensy baby step. and maybe one more…you will find it get’s easier and easier.
THAT is the magic of MOMENTUM.
