I\ ve been inactive for so long that starting now won\ t really help anything.-2. i\ m too shy to be physically active in public or with other people.-3. if i take time to be physically active, i\ m ignoring my family.-4. i don\ t have enough energy to be active.-5. physical activity is boring-correct answer: a, b, c, d, & e.a. ive been inactive for so long that starting now wont really help anything. solution: youre never tool old and its never too late to become more physically active. evidence shows that many people 90 years and older who have become frail from inactivity have successfully built their strength and independence through simple activities in a short time. any physical activity you add to your life will help build health benefits every little bit counts no matter when you start!B. im too shy to be physically active in public or with other people. solution: if youre more comfortable staying at home to do your physical activity, thats fine too! Walk around your house and yard as much as possible. try keeping the cleaning supplies far from the area that is being cleaned so you need to move more to get the job done. gardening or any other kind of yard work can be effective way to become more often. follow an exercise show on tv or dvd. c. if i take time to be physically active, im ignoring my family. solution: you can find a compromise that lets you improve your health by being active while spending time with your family too. try to be active with you family by playing games such as tag or taking the family on a nature hike. you can also use your lunch hour at work to be active or get up early before the kids wake up for a brisk walk or jog. d. i dont have enough energy to be active.solution: try scheduling your physical activities during the time of day when you have the most energy, whether thats first think in the morning, at lunchtime, or after dinner. a simple walk around the block is better than nothing; every little bit counts. once you give movement a chance youll discover that being physically active actually gives you more energy being inactive is what can make people fee tired all the time.e. physical activity is boringsolution: try a social activity you can do with a friend or family member to make physical activity an enjoyable social outing and keep each other motivated. try something you enjoyed when you were younger or something youve always wanted to explore that looks interesting, like a new hobby involving physical activity such as gardening, yoga or tai chi. for variety, mix up different forms of physical activity such as hip hop dancing, swimming, etc. think about what types of physical activity appeals to you so youll have fun doing them.
