Inertia

Posted Feb 06 2011 12:40pm

Inertia:  the resistance of any physical object to change it's state of motion.  More simply put, an object in motion remains in motion while an object at rest remains at rest.  This is of course until something comes along and has some direct effect on said motion. 

I have times when I am tired and need to rest.  I will spend most of the day reading or watching TV but I generally feel kind of antsy just laying there.  Then there are days like yesterday.  I was a complete slug.  I spent the majority of the day on the couch snoozing in and out.  I woke up this morning feeling like I had taken some drugs.  This is my indication that I am oversleeping.  I feel all groggy and foggy and just not myself.  This tells me I need to move more, which presents a tiny bit of a problem.  Breaking that inertia is hard.  I will have to focus my mind all day on doing things and not give in to the temptation to stretch out on the couch.  I am starting the day with a long dog walk so hopefully that will shake things up a bit.  Right now I'm off to grab a  quick shower and hope I can wash away the inertia....
