But you do understand your need of it and would love to be healthy and fit, too. Problem is, you hate exercise. If only there was a way to prod yourself to exercise and then find yourself actually doing it willingly regularly.
But there is.
If you hate exercise but want some way to start doing it and liking it, too, start with something you can do easily and immediately--something almost like not exercising at all.
Like window shopping. It's an exciting way to start exercise without feeling you're exercising.
Look for a big mall with several floors--like SM North, Fishermall, Megamall, or Farmers Plaza. Wear a most comfy and light roaming-around outfit, like shirt, shorts and walking shoes. Don't make anything complicated. Keep things simple.
Take along some cash for buying water and fare. Limit your cash to purely that--for fare and water--so you won't be tempted to spend money needlessly.
Then roam around the mall leisurely, really doing window shopping, enjoying the sights, making sure you take each hallway and corridor on every floor. Don't take the escalator or elevator. Circle the mall like this 2 to 3 times or until you complete 45 minutes.
Better if you do this with your spouse or with a group with the same aim--to prod themselves to start exercising.
Do this 3 to 4 times a week. You can do this after office hours. Before going home, drop by the nearest mall for your window shopping workout.
The next time around, increase your walking speed. There after, brisk walk.
