Let's step back into the science classroom for a second here and take a look at Newton's Laws of Motion.
First law: If an object experiences no net force, then its velocity is constant: the object is either at rest (if its velocity is zero), or it moves in a straight line with constant speed (if its velocity is nonzero).
upon it. And for those of you, like myself, that like examples, that means that my body was at rest and did not want to get up out of bed! A force greater than my body's desire to stay in bed was needed.
I laid there in bed for thirty minutes with all sorts of reasons why I should stay in bed. Then it hit me. I gave my word. And I have to start somewhere. So with that, I got my butt out of bed and put one foot in front of the other...and got to the gym.
When you snooze, you lose alright...another opportunity to create motion. Another opportunity for change. Another opportunity to make a difference.
Tomorrow the alarm will go off again. I will probably create other reasons why I should stay in bed. I will likely hit snooze. And I will still get up and head to the gym. I will be creating motion, momentum, inertia and then I get to enjoy the second part of Newton's first law:
An object that is in motion will not change its velocity unless an unbalanced force acts upon it. This is known as uniform motion.
