Spooky Explores The First Law of Thermodynamics


spooky

Recommended Posts

“Energy can be neither created nor destroyed. Thus power generation processes and energy sources actually involve conversion of energy from one form to another, rather than creation of energy from nothing.” 

 

The law of conservation of energy. It’s an irrefutable fact of physics. 

 

We talk about it a lot in relation to weight loss. Calories in, calories out. 

 

But I wonder; what would this look like in terms of the way I spend my daily energy? The way I spend my life?

 

I tend to think about some things as "requiring energy" while others don't. But that's not true. Everything requires energy, according to the first law.

 

And I have all that energy already within me. So it's up to me to be conscious how I spend it. 

 

So this challenge I'll still be making my to do list. But I want to explore limiting it. And reflect on what gets done -- and what doesn't.

 

How am I choosing to spend my energy?

O, I love this challenge for you. This will be lovely, and informative, and possibly transformational.

I'm following, of course.

 

Also, how would you feel about being the inspiration for a mini? There's a lot of love for your gratitude journaling -- want to start a thread for all the Druids this round? I think it would be gorgeous.

Sitting outside with a brain like water- not still exactly but ebbing and flowing with the breeze around me. I felt happy and at peace. These are the moments I search for but they find me when I'm not looking.

Hopefully you don't need to accelerate any mass in order to obtain your energy, 'cause I hear it has to go, like, really fast. ;)

Thanks Shello! I sort of hope I learn something too :D But I think an exploration/experimental challenge is a cool idea for me right now. Sort of...non-judgmental being, I think :)

YAY! I'm excited, I think it'll be a really good one. Very non-judgment based and sort of just...seeing what's there and experimenting. 

Always happy to have you <333

 

AH OMG HONORED! I'd totally make a thread for the mini! Gratitude is something I really want to make more a priority.

Not gonna lie, this challenge is one I read when I first joined NF and it really inspired me. I'm going to read through it again, I think it has many lessons to teach me :) <33
