Context : Have been trying to get my mother to take Omega3 supplements and exercise regularly. She has high BP, and previous attempts to evoke family history, use threats, emotional blackmail etc have been futile.
Lessons learned : Specifics are important. Asking her “to please exercise” was too vague. Also asking her to join Yoga didnt work because her ability was low. It involved too many steps: Research yoga classes, make appointment, reschedule work, drive there.
To make exercise high in ability for her, I specified : 30 mins of walking a day
