Different Ways to Stay in Shape

OK, you have tried to follow the oft recommended route of 30 minutes exercise/high activity a day, and failed. What else could you do to stay in shape?

Well, to be fair, I think there is no substitute for good exercise. Trust me, I have been on both sides of the table – a sloth earlier who thought just walking for 10 minutes every day was enormous exercise, and now, a bit more wise bloke who runs his 5 Kms at least twice a week. I can feel the difference that significant physical exertion can make.

So, yes, do try to spend at least 15 minutes every day in a good amount of physical exertion.

At the same time, the alternatives I suggest below could at least ensure you become  reasonably healthy. These could be a lot easier than doing a 30 minute exercise every day,  and if not, some of them could be at least more fun!
