If you can't run for whatever reason, you can find a means of physical exertion you can do. Swimming is extremely low-impact and accessible to nearly everyone Yes, that means a gym membership (where there's a pool.) If running doesn't suit you, biking might (I do both.) If biking and running don't suit you, walking could do the job. Oh, and if you're like most Americans, cut 500 calories a day from your diet. Using something like Myfitnesspal (free app for Android phones) makes it easy - log everything that goes in the piehole and you'll quickly realize how fast it all adds up and goes straight to your waistline.
Come to grips with your own mortality, however you are best comfortable with doing so. Change what you can, and accept what you cannot change. That we all get older and begin dying from the day we're born onward we cannot change.
How we go from the first point to the second is only partly under our control, but ceding that control to a nanny government that now threatens parents with arrest because their kid rides his or her bike to school is an outrage. That's not government with the consent of the governed, it's a declaration that you're living in a de-facto prison - one that is now desperately clawing at the cliff-edge as Leviathan has borrowed and spent itself into a corner and is biting off your legs to sustain itself.
Cornered animals are extremely dangerous, but as the edifices of alleged "safety" (which have been used to buy your vote and thus acquiescence) collapse, you will be forced to deal with the fact that these promises and expectations have always been utter crap and impossible to sustain.
You can either be prepared for this transition, accept it and enjoy your journey from birth to death, or you will find yourself a wide-eyed deer in the headlights of oncoming reality.
Incidentally, that's a train.
