I would like to know how you do or think you could get clients or participants to participate in leisure time activities. I am not looking for exercise but more along the lines of cleaning, gardening, playing with children, etc. Also what kind of leisure activities to you encourage your clients to do?
I have found that once my clients begin enjoying the benefits and results of “exercise” they actually start looking for more physical things to do
Many times I will suggest ideas to them, if they ask, or I will encourage them to “get outside today for 30 minutes” . I will also listen for pieces of enthusiasm when they discuss certain activities they have done and I will encourage them to pursue their passions.
Ultimately it is totally up to them to decide what they enjoy doing!
