This article bridges a conceptual approach for understanding the sense of wellbeing, liberation, and relaxation mothers say they commonly achieve from engaging in the exercise experience, to proposing appropriate health promotion policy for practical program implementation. Mothers who engage in exercise classes may gain mental wellbeing and easing of stress levels. As it is the gaining of the actual time-out from motherhood that helps provide the means for stress reduction, it is important that the activity is offered at a convenient time and location. Supportive environments and policies that consider childminding and the busy lifestyles of mothers will ensure that individual action toward leisure is facilitated. Health policies and programs, including strategies related to settings, realistic targets, media, specificity, use of social networks, marketing, gentle exercise modes, advice and support, will do much to facilitate access and success.
