What the FU*K is Inertia?

Now in my house we have a TV like most people…

This isn’t where I tell you about how I don’t watch TV because it poisons the mind and you are lazy for sitting on the couch all the time.

Have you seen SUITS???

I would happily sit and watch that.

But my point is in our house we generally find ourselves watching kids TV programs like Paw Patrol or Peppa Pig.

There is another program called ‘Blaze and the Monster Machines’

So if you have children between the age of 2 – 5 then you may be familiar with Blaze.

If not don’t bother watching it, I will just tell you what he is about.

He is quite a smart dude this place, very educational.

Not only for my son but for me too.

The other day he was talking about INERTIA.

Now me being a simple fella didn’t have a clue what it meant.

I assumed it meant momentum, I also think it’s more of an American word?

Anyway…

Here is what inertia means:

‘a property of matter by which it continues in its existing state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line, unless that state is changed by an external force’

So from that it means that if something is moving forward in a straight line it will keep going unless stopped by an external force.

This made made me think of us and our journey in our own health and fitness.

We get going initially and get up a bit of momentum or inertia in this case and things are going well.

We are cruising along at a decent speed with no obstacles in sight.

Then BOOM. Something comes up and we get slowed down and fall off the tracks.

This happens far too easily.

It should be the case where if something does come into your path and tries to knock you off the track it better get out the way before you smash right through it.

Control your environment, don’t let it control you.
