Culture can be encouraging of physical activity…or not. Researchers analyzed a variety of motivators for physical activity and exercise. Since being physically active is a result of self-determination, they detailed the combination of autonomy, competence, ego, task, and relatedness of these in the motivation to exercise. American subjects were more autonomous, task oriented, and physically active than Turkish subjects telling researchers and ultimately us clinicians to adapt exercise to the patient and his/her interests. (1) Share with Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries what motivates you! Simple? Fast? At-home? Out of the house? Maybe some mindfulness? To enrich the exercise effort, adding mindfulness appears encouraging.

Curious researchers took on the question of older adults’ goals, motivations, and self-determination motivators to follow a healthy lifestyle and participate in things to support that lifestyle like exercising and eating well. Factors like personality and goal-setting habits were suggested influencers. (5) Even in kids, researchers saw that behaviors like breakfast eating, exercise, and sleep patterns influenced their healthy lifestyle. Foregoing breakfast in the morning – 11% of kids in one study did this – was linked to sleep duration, bedtime, and physical activity. 9.5% of kids reported poor sleep. 24.9% slept less than the suggested 9 hours. Girls were less physically active. Sad news: Such unhealthy habits lessened children’s hand-eye coordination and attention.
