A Guide For The Lazy: How to Look Active Without Trying

Couch potatoes, homies lacking motor skills and plainly unsporty peeps, I’ve got your  back. So what if you don’t have runners or razorback exercise tops and running tights? I’ll help you  fool the sporty crew that you’re the next Serena Williams or Bernard Tomic. The ‘Active’ Hair: Tying up your hair and tucking your fringe and loose ends away from your face  immediately makes you look more energetic and active. Leave the hair covering times  for another more apt occasion, like trying to avoid someone you hate. A Fitting Shirt: Avoid overly ­baggy tees because that will defeat all your deceiving efforts. Put away  that shirt that is two sizes too big, you wouldn’t want to look like the sack that keeps all  the couch potatoes. Neutral Colours: If you’re reading this, it should be safe to assume that sport isn’t your forte and you wouldn’t want to stand out among the active. So stay clear from brightly coloured  clothes, especially neon. This way you’ll look sporty without being forced by sportsenthusiasts to get sweaty. Avoid White Tees At All Cost: The deadly combination of sweat, water and white has been embarrassing people since the dawn of time Unless being the wet white shirt guy in Call Me Maybe is your  goal, please allow tees to fulfill their sole purpose of shielding you from stares at your  torso. Exercise Bottoms: Exchange expensive exercise bottoms with cheaper alternatives that you can find in  your wardrobe. Take sleeping shorts for example, they are comfortable for sure and you  don’t even have to change out of them once you get out of bed. Zero effort needed! Shoes  Runners, sneakers, loafers, whatever. The hard and fast rule is if it doesn’t bother you,  you’re doing it right. By Nadia Yeo
