“Every body perseveres in its state of being at rest or of moving uniformly straight forward except insofar as it is compelled to change its state by forces impressed.”
– Sir Isaac Newton
I hadn’t been to a yoga class in about three weeks. Back pain was my main excuse but I had become a ‘body at rest’. My wife said ‘let’s go even if it’s just SloYoga’. We did, it was good. On the way home she reminded me that getting off V0 or a state of non-movement is harder than changing direction once you are already moving. In other words, if I’m stuck it’s better to make any move than wait to make the right move.
It helps to have a buddy to help us get moving. If you are self employed that might be a coach or someone you know who is also self employed and can serve as a reciprocal source. You don’t need a nag, but a little push off zero can be all you need to get moving again.
