If you have always relied on gadgets to do these chores for you, change the habit and start doing them yourself.
Take part in sports. Doctors recommend sports as an effective way of staying fit. You can take part in football, basketball, badminton or tennis. Do it in moderation without taking it too seriously. Playing basketball with a friend is still a sport but done in a fun way.
