According to BYU: What Is Rhetoric? It can be a lot of things. Rhetoric is the everyday persuasion in order to get another persons acceptance to what is being brought to their attention. I myself have experienced rhetoric almost every single day of my life. In order to get someone to sell the idea to me, it has to be pretty darn convincing.
For Example, working out. If you have not noticed yet, being fit is a everyday visual rhetoric. Especially in the social media world. We are always being reminded constantly about crash dieting, what we should be eating and what we should not to eat. Or what our bodies would look like if we just were to put the burgers and fries down. Yes, I agree that it can all seem scary once actual research is done on it. When it comes to being more fit and healthier, fitness blogs are always there as rhetoric to guide us. I also believe that instead of the constant pressure of looking a certain way. A person should be able to take the time to learn their bodies in their own timeframes in order to get to that fitness point.
Another one is of course the everyday rhetoric of drinking water. How often do we go to restaurants and the first thing they ask is, “Hello, can I start you off with some water?” “Can I get you a refill on your water?” Water is an absolute everyday rhetoric that gets our attention and persuasiveness on why it is so important to drink. Even as kids, parents made it known how important it was to drink drink drink up as much water as you can. A lot of schools today don’t even provide sodas as an option of beverage for kids. I know for me, It’s to the point where it really feels like some kind of guilt if 8 glasses of water is not included in my everyday life.
If you were to ask yourself what’s one thing they can’t function without, what would that be? I know! I know! No other than our portable gadgets. With everything that is going on in the world today, our cell phones, tablets, laptops, etc.. keep us updated 24/7. We use them for communication purposes and entertainment. It has been known that when someone leaves their phone at home, or even loses it, hearts are bound to drop! The thought of being without it for more than 8 hours seems like the toughest thing in the world to bare.
