WHICH WAY IS YOUR MOMENTUM GOING?
Newton’s Law of Motion – An object in motion stays in motion.
Until… it’s acted upon by an external source.
The motion makes it easier to stay in motion because of momentum.
Which way is your momentum going or do you even have momentum?
Are you moving towards your goals or in the opposite direction?
Example: You’ve been eating well and are being fairly conscious of what you consume. Then you go on vacation and you give yourself permission to eat what you want. When you get home you continue to eat the same way you ate on vacation but you’ve picked up momentum in this area and are getting more and more habitual with your practice of eating what you want.
So now, you have a choice. Do you continue to let the momentum carry you in the direction of unconscious eating or do you STOP, and choose differently. In order to do this you have to make a conscious choice to be the force that acts upon the object in motion. In this case the object is YOU eating willy nilly.
Once you make the decision to change your course of action then your momentum will be lost. In this case it’s a good thing, because you want to stop that fast moving train and turn it around.
Now you have the opportunity to build momentum in a new direction. Do it by moving one foot in front of the other. Take small actionable steps towards eating healthier and more consciously:
-Drink one more glass of water a day
-eat 2 more fruits and vegetables a day
-decide to have only one treat every day instead of three
After a few days you’ll begin to build momentum in the direction of eating healthy again and more quickly regain focus on your goals.
Getting momentum on your side will effect the gap between you and what you want, just be aware of your direction.
