Choose those exercises and activities that seem enjoyable and interesting for you.
Don’t be afraid and go for what you actually like. It's much easier to develop a new healthy habit if you enjoy this. Don’t stick with something obvious and probably boring - go deeper. Root on the Internet, ask your friends and family - and you’ll find something great enough!
Check with your doctor before you start a new activity.
Keep going with an activity that is manageable for you now. Or choose the easiest level for possible - you can always gain some skills and try a little bit more advanced activity. Care about yourself and your health first.
Start slowly. Get a consultation if you have any chronic states that require additional attention. Proceed with caution and slowly, enjoy that! Keep the right track and soon you’re able to go for something else.
Choose social activities. Going for exercise or a class that can provide social activity as well is twice as good! You can invite your friends and family, find new and interesting people and have some fun!
