The best type of physical activity is the one that fits in your daily life, is suitable with your current physical conditions and abilities, and most importantly, something you enjoy. Most people are more likely to abandon an activity if the one they choose does not suit their preferences or lifestyle. Some questions to think about when choosing a physical activity are:
- Do you like things organized or prefer more casual activities?
- Do you like to do things on your own or to be part of a group?
- Do you prefer to spend time indoors or outdoors?
- What are your movement constraints?
No matter the answers to those questions, if you stick with a routine that includes physical activity, the benefits for your body and brain will come soon and last longer than you think.
