Activities and the Outdoors

If you ask my parents, I don’t get outdoors enough. When I’m at home, they say I need to get off the computer (I’m a gamer) and go outside. They assume I have the same habits at school, even though I try to tell them I don’t.

But maybe I do, because my friends tease me (in a friendly way) about the same stuff. I have a pretty good social life, I think, but I mostly stick to other peoples’ dorm rooms. And it’s true enough that I don’t go outside and exercise or play sports. I’m not antisocial, but maybe I should be better about getting outside in the sun, just for health reasons and stuff. Experts, I know I should go outside, but how important is it, really? And if it is important, how can I make myself get out there more?
