When I was younger, I would hang-glide in cow pastures. (You immediately see a myriad of issues with this, I suspect).
I would run with the hang-glider until I had enough momentum that the air would lift me off the ground into the sky. It was like magic to me. Momentum always propelled me to new heights. (side note: upon landing, I had to make sure I missed the cows and their by-products!)
I hate to exercise.
I must exercise in order to control my type 2 diabetes. Exercise and diet are my two main tools. And they work amazingly.
But I have found that momentum is a key to overcoming the inertia that keeps us from getting off the couch (or out of our office) and exercising.
Here’s what momentum looks like:
You walk one day for 5 minutes. Day 2 you walk for 5 minutes. Day 3 you drive to the gym to climb on the stair step machine. Day 4 you walk for 10 minutes. Momentum will now deposit you into some kind of activity on day 5 and beyond.
Your hang-glider will now be airborne!
