To start i lift weight 4 times a week,although its not everybodys cup of tea i really enjoy it. Several medical tests have proven its one of the most effective ways to ward off depression. After a heavy work out feeling is hard to match.
Walk the dog, something i do every evening no matter what mood im in, always feel great after and the dog loves it too.
I always try to swim once a week,one off the best cardio workout s there is and i love the water.

Serafena, I wouldn't say I am enthusiastic about it, but since the spine surgery two years ago, and the nerve damage that I had to come back from to have the use of my left leg, I don't have a choice but to work out as part of my regular maintenance, or one day I won't be able to walk well (or at all). SO....here is what I do. At least 2 times a week, I take a book that I call my "work out book" to the gym with me and I do the bike (7-10 minutes), and treadmill (25-45 minutes @ between 2.6-3.0mph - depending on how my body is doing that day) and I read. My rule is that I can ONLY read the chosen book (whatever it is) while working out. So as I ride or walk, I read. Then I do my mandatory stretching, and strength training (per my therapy instructions) and POOF, I am done. It is not too horrible this way, and if I am regular about it, I do feel better. It takes just over an hour for everything. If I am REALLY good, I do it 3 to 4 times a week (altering lighter and heavier workouts as I have to go slow and steady or I pay the price and start walking funny and have nerve pain). But if I do it right...I REALLY do feel stronger. Hope that helps. Hugs, LFW
