Shop around for an activity that suits you
If going to the gym isn’t really your thing, or the idea of running makes you cringe – shop around.
There’s a whole heap of activities you can try on for size, like:
Shopping – If you’re a true bargain hunter, you can treat shopping as your good excuse for walking. Just 30 minutes a day is all you need. But be sure to make up for the time you spend standing still. It costs nothing to have a look!
Dancing – It’s fun and you can dance anywhere you like, whether it’s around your bedroom, at a club or part of a formal dance class. From belly to ballet, jazz to jive, there’s a style to suit everyone.
Cycling – You don’t have to wear lycra if it’s not your thing. Just jump on the bike and make sure you pack plenty of water to prevent dehydration.
Swimming – Spending a day at the beach or local pool is a great way to hang out with your friends. It’s also cheap! Don’t forget to slip, slop, slap.
There’s also a heap of sports you can play with your friends, so put your parent’s credit card away and shop around for an activity that suits you.
