Have you ever noticed the water in a pond? When the water just sits in one place, it gets dirty.
Have you noticed the water in a moving river? When the water keeps moving, it stays clean.
When we do not intentionally grow, stretch and move, we become like the pond. We lose energy. We slow down. We stagnate.
Everyone slips into stagnation once in a while. But some people stay there. Sometimes for a long time. And the longer you stay there, the harder it becomes to fight the stagnation.
Stagnation may feel comfortable in the short term but it can have a debilitating impact on our abilities and self-esteem in the long term.
Keep moving, no matter how small your steps.
Physics teaches us that an object that is stationary will stay stationary unless it is met with an equal and opposing force.
Similarly, an object in motion will stay in motion unless it is met with an equal and opposing force.
Stay in motion.
