On NPR this morning, I heard Renee Montagne utter this intriguing line, “About half of all Americans say they exercise regularly.” I literally laughed out loud as exercise is a big topic of conversation this week in my house, with my parents visiting from Florida. My dad had a second heart surgery last year and my mom has high cholesterol, and they really would benefit from regular exercise. I know this. They know this. And yet…they are not among the apparently half of Americans exercising regularly.
Maybe peer pressure (as opposed to kid pressure) would help? So I listened keenly.
