The aim is to "light up the path" and guide people towards desirable change/a positive future.
PA can improve the 3 Cs
Control, Competence and Connectedness
Physical activity can contribute to basic psychological needs and boost motivation.
Why PA might not bring desired outcomes
Negative emotional, social and physical effects
Disapproval of others
Conflict with other priorities.
Low sense of control
Can't see the point/negative attitude to PA.
