How do you become more active/outdoorsy?

The most I do outside is go on walks. I would LOVE to get outside more. Gardening, hiking, fishing, even birding sound incredibly appealing to me. But I'm a little apprehensive because I would have to go solo.

Where do you start when you have no one to show you how or go with you?

I know this might sound silly, but get a dog.  I find I am outside with my dog a lot more then I am alone.

Start with some container gardening. Read up about how to do it. Do some tomatoes and anything else you'd actually eat so you save some money. I'm allergic so I can't be out much or I itch and am ill for a while.

Just start with small steps.  Don't go on a 2 hour hike, go for a 20 minute hike somewhere close to home.  I love to go bike riding by myself...it's relaxing to me.  Same with a garden...start with something small, you can always add to it and people at the nurseries are always willing to answer questions to help you get started.
