“The main reason we wanted to come on and talk to people was to really get across the message that you don’t know. People think of depression as a big glaring sign across somebody’s forehead... That is not necessarily the case” – Fiona Tuomey

You must know the person and their story, their beliefs, their goals and motivations. So there is no recipe. Find what motivates peoples and build the resources around that.

For many winning may be highly motivational and they may use/do anything to achieve this. Probably supports motivational theory.

All we can say from the evidence is the shock tactics as you call them don't work.

Yep. Because it isn't a simple choice. Physical activity is a highly complex human behaviour. Then again we have oversimplified everything else. Might as well do it for this.

It's everyone's problem but it's not a simple choice.

Nonsense. The blame culture has led to the stigmatization that has conveniently let clinicians off the hook because their interventions have failed dismally. Easy to pass the blame.

Wearable technology doesn't work either. Recent Lancet review.

Yep Mark it's that simple. Just a choice. That's why we have done so poorly in our attempts at getting people active.

Hence we should focus on enjoyment etc rather than "health promotion".

You are not considering the broader biopsychosocial nature of barriers. Motivation being one of them.

No but we shouldn't blame people when they don't use the facilities. People don't do what doesn't motivate them.

Humans have evolved to conserve energy. The "cost" of moving must be worth it.

It should have meaning. Workplace interventions often forget this. A highly reductionist approach.

So instead of blaming the workers, we should blame the concept.

But exercise in the workplace isn't motivational for many. The barrier is lack of motivation.

I understand your thought process here. But an individual can decide they want to be active and not have the resources to do so. There is an abundance of research evidence to support this.
