I'm trying to exercise more and be more fit but I find it really boring.
I tried skipping this morning for about 10 mins, following a video along, and it was okay, but it didn't get my adrenaline pumping or anything and I didn't feel all awesome after it. I don't like running because I find it awkward and boring. I have free access to a gym, but I'll only go work machines if there's a programme I like on the TV screen in the gym that can stimulate my mind while I'm doing repetitive exercises. I have access to a swimming pool also, but I don't go swimming often because I hate having to wash my hair afterwards, and also, people can see me swimming, which makes me self-conscious. I do theoretically like adventure sports but I haven't tried any, so I don't know if I actually like them.
I'm the right weight for my height, leaning towards the skinny side, and don't have any physical limitations. I don't get sick very often (although I've been plagued by a cold for the past 1 month - very highly unusual).
In one sense, not having an obviously unhealthy body makes it harder for me to look at that as the motivation to exercise. I think my motivation needs to have to do with mental health, but my apathy is overwhelming.
I think exercise can help me be more happy and help me release any negative energy. I'm not sure I can release apathy through exercise.
Is this just me or has anyone else felt like this?
