Some of my friends
think it's important to do sports regularly, while others would rather watch a
sporting event on TV.
Nowadays people have to work more and
they prefer to rest more actively. Therefore they need better health, more
energy and endurance in order to carry out all activities efficiently and without
fatigue. It's important to be in good shape and to stay healthy and attractive.
To my mind, physical exercises are
essential for everyone. If you want to be strong physically and mentally, you
can go to a fitness club, a sauna or a swimming pool. Physical exercises
strengthen the immune system, improve mental health and help prevent different
diseases and obesity. Exercising is also the best remedy for insomnia,
depression and stress.
However, a lot of people say they have
neither time nor opportunity to go in for sports. What is more, they feel too
tired after a hard day's work. That is why all they can do in the evening is to
watch sporting events on TV. But I think that if you don't have an opportunity
to go to a fitness club, you can just buy a treadmill or a stationary bike and
exercise at home. You can also do your morning exercises, jog, swim in summer,
ski or skate in winter, play different sports games such as tennis, football,
volley-ball, basket-ball and so on. At least you can dance and jump about your
room to music for 10-15 minutes each day.
To conclude, if you want to be slim and
strong, you must leave your comfortable armchair and exercise. It is not enough
to watch other people doing sports. Only regular exercises will help you make
your life longer and healthier.
Some parents think
that Physical Education is a very important subject to their children. Others
think that PE should only be optional at school because not everyone is equally
good at sport.
There have been a lot of arguments if
Physical Education should be on the curriculum in most schools. Some parents
consider PE to be a very important subject, while others are convinced that it
is up to pupils to choose whether to attend these lessons or not.
I strongly feel that Physical Education
is essential for every boy and girl. Not every child has an opportunity to go
to a fitness club or a swimming pool because it costs much money. But physical
exercises are important because they strengthen the immune system, improve
mental health and help prevent different diseases and obesity. All children and
teenagers want to be in good shape and to stay healthy.
On the other hand, quite a lot of
children have problems with their health and they can't attend PE lessons. Some
boys and girls feel embarrassed when they can't do what their classmates can.
They can't run fast, jump high or they don't play basketball or volley-ball
well. What is more, such children often feel upset or even humiliated when they
get bad marks. But I think that PE lessons are useful for everybody. To my
mind, children who are weaker should do some easy exercises.
In conclusion, I would like to say that
Physical Education is an essential part of the school curriculum as well as
mathematics, literature or foreign languages. Of course, not everyone is
equally good at sport. But not everyone is equally good at other subjects and
it is not a good reason to make them optional. Anyway, PE lessons will help
children become stronger, healthier and more energetic.
They say, excessive exercises are
detrimental to health, but some people don't share this opinion.
In general, sport helps us to be in good
shape, to become strong and to stay healthy and attractive. But can excessive
exercises ruin your health?
Personally, I think that immoderate
training is very harmful. Firstly, a person who exercises too much feels
exhausted and depressed. He or she expands too much time and energy on doing
sports. Such people feel great pressure and tend to exercise harder and harder
trying to achieve better results. They stop taking breaks and lose touch with
their own needs. Secondly, sportsmen often suffer different injuries which
sometimes can be very serious. It usually takes them much time to recover.
Finally, some professional sportsmen take a dope, a drug which serves to
improve their performance. Such drugs do much harm to their health and they can
But in spite of all these dangers, many
people go in for sports. Physical exercises strengthen the immune system,
improve mental health and help prevent different diseases and burn calories.
Exercising is also the best remedy for insomnia and stress. People who exercise
regularly are productive, happy, efficient and calm. Exercise re-energizes
them, improves their concentration and problem-solving.
To conclude, it is generally well-known
now that there are many physical and mental health benefits that can be gained
from regular exercise. But don't forget that exercises are very useful in case
they are moderate.
The popularity of extreme sports has
grown a lot for the last decades. More and more people are getting involved in
this activity. Others are sure that it is silly of such people to risk their
Extreme sports are becoming more and
more popular. Some people say that they can't imagine their lives without them.
However, others don't understand what compels some individuals to extreme
In my opinion, extreme sports give one a
wonderful opportunity to release stress, to escape everyday monotony and to get
his portion of adrenaline. Those people who are involved in extreme activities
say it gets the adrenaline pumping and makes them forget about all their problems.
Besides, it is always great to take up something new. I believe it's really
very difficult to think about ordinary things when you have to survive and to
fight against environmental obstacles and challenges. It makes people feel
strong and alive. What is more, it is also an unusual way of losing weight and
But some people think that taking up the
extremist lifestyle is crazy as it often involves a high level of danger. They
admit that they are afraid of diving from a plane or jumping from a bridge.
Indeed, it is not a task for the weak hearted. It requires endurance and
reliance on your own survival skills. Extreme activities often involve speed,
height and physical exertion. Besides, you will need a certain amount of money
to pay for highly specialized gear and a professional instructor.
To sum up, it's up to you to decide
whether to risk your life or not. Some extreme activities are so dangerous that
people compare them with virtual suicide. Others say that the experience is
magical. But you should always remember that your life and your health are the
most important things.
Surfing is becoming
more and more popular nowadays. However, some people say that this sport is not
for everybody because it is rather risky.
Many people admire muscular bronzed
young men who ride a surfboard on the crest of a wave as it carries them
towards the shore. Some people practice surfing as a recreational activity,
while others think that it is the most important thing in their lives.
Personally, I believe that surfing is a
source of inspiration for many people. It gives them a wonderful opportunity
to display their strength and agility, to release stress, to escape everyday
monotony and to get their portion of adrenaline. Surfing is an excellent sport
for those who are ready to risk their lives and to take up something new. It
will certainly help you become stronger and healthier. Anyone at any age can
learn to surf.
However, many people say that surfing is
very difficult. Most beginners are not able to catch the wave at all. Surfers
should be able to control their board in challenging conditions, to ride challenging
waves, and to execute different maneuvers. Besides, the equipment and
sportswear for surfing are rather expensive. Moreover, one should not forget
that surfing is extremely dangerous. Trapped inside a high wave surfers can
become totally disorientated. One of the main dangers of surfing is drowning.
Some professional surfers have drowned in extremely challenging conditions.
Collisions with sand bars, rocks, reefs or surfboards can sometimes cause
injuries and even death. Such animals as sharks or jellyfish can also present a
To sum up, if you have made up your mind
to become a surfer, take all pros and cons into consideration first.
Parkour is a sport
that is extremely popular with young people. However, traceurs (parkour
practitioners) say that it is rather difficult and dangerous.
Today parkour has developed throughout
the world. It is especially popular with young men who are eager for new
experiences. Parkour teaches them to move quickly and efficiently and to overcome
obstacles such as concrete walls, high fences, hedges or rocks. But every
parkour practitioner must remember that there are a number of dangers that
they need to be aware of.
Personally, I think that parkour gives
you much energy and helps you develop physical fitness and coordination as well
as determination, endurance, agility and courage. You can learn to trust
yourself and to be strong. It's a sport that teaches you to control your body
and to move without being hindered by obstacles. To my mind, it is a natural
method to develop strength, speed and power. Thanks to parkour, traceurs learn
how to surmount both physical and mental obstacles.
However, parkour is a difficult
discipline to train. One of its main dangers is falling. Young people usually
practice in parks and abandoned structures. Of course they try to avoid
injuries, but everything happens. Some reckless people who assume too much
about their physical abilities and do not take full account of the risks may be
seriously injured. So parkour requires cool- headedness, prudence, good
self-control and the ability to be observant.
To conclude, parkour teaches young
people to overcome everyday difficulties and to approach problems differently.
It pushes the limits of the human body and mind. Parkour also gives you an
opportunity to explore the potential offered by your body. I believe parkour
can change your life and your attitude to everything.
A lot of people dream
of being slim. They follow a diet trying to lose weight. But others say that
weight-loss diets can be very harmful.
Turning over the pages of glossy fashion
magazines we see pictures of beautiful women and handsome men with ideal
figures and we want to be like them. In chase of health and beauty a lot of
people follow different weight-loss diets. But they often forget how awful the
consequences might be.
Personally, I never follow any diets. To
my mind, the best way to lose weight is to exercise. Physical exercises help
you to be in good shape and to stay healthy and attractive. Running and swift
walking help me to burn calories. I often go to a fitness club and a swimming
pool. Besides, I try to avoid fast, fried and fatty food.
However, a lot of people are keen on
weight-loss diets. Many of them stop eating anything thinking that starvation
will lead to the best results. But dieting may have such side effects as
fatigue, irritability, depression or fainting and it may result in such eating
disorders as anorexia or bulimia. I think that if you want to lose weight and
to preserve health, it's better to begin with smaller portions of food and some
substitutions. For example, you can replace a cup of tea and a cake with a
glass of juice. Anyway, one should remember that a person needs 2,000 calories
a day, but it depends on age, weight, physical activity and other factors.
To conclude, it is great to be slim, but
never forget that "health is the best wealth". All in all, if you
want to go on a diet, you'd better consult a doctor or a nutrition expert
Some people think
that physical attractiveness is important to every person. Others say that it
is inner beauty that really matters.
People have admired beauty since ancient
times. It gives us a sense of pleasure and inspiration, keeps up our spirits
and makes us accomplish feats. But there is a kind of beauty that is not
observable. It is called inner beauty. So which is more important: a pretty
face or a kind heart?
Personally, I believe that inner beauty
is much more important than an attractive appearance. People have always valued
honesty, kindness, sincerity, devotion and tenderness. In the history of
mankind there are a lot of examples when a person fell in love with an
absolutely unattractive or even ugly man or woman because of his or her wonderful
traits of character. Every child knows the famous story "Beauty and the
Beast". It is about a charming girl who fell in love with a frightening
monster because he possessed inner beauty
However, others believe that physical
attractiveness make people happy. A person who has large eyes, a slim figure,
long legs, thick hair and regular features is usually admired by everybody.
Beauty can help people become successful and even famous. Beautiful people
receive more attention, find romantic partners more easily, get better jobs and
promotions and even earn more money. Some historical individuals have become
icons of beauty, including Cleopatra, Sophie Loren and Marilyn Monroe. But I
think that most beautiful people are capricious, light- minded and faithless.
To sum up, both physical attractiveness
and inner beauty are important to a person. But I strongly feel that it is
better to have a good character than a beautiful face. Anyway, appearances are
Plastic surgery is
becoming more and more popular. Some people think that it can help them become
happier and more attractive. Others are convinced that there are too many risks
which must be taken into account.
In modern society personal image and
appearance play an important role. Now it is fashionable to be young and
attractive. Both men and women are afraid of getting old. That is why they use
plastic surgery procedures to conceal the signs of aging.
In my opinion, the possibilities of
plastic surgery are huge. It can help you change the shape of your nose,
correct sticking-out ears, reduce a double chin and what not. Successful
plastic surgery can lead to an increase in self-esteem and confidence. Studies
show that beautiful people are considered to be more intelligent, successful
and capable. Besides, they often have increased romantic opportunities and it
is easier for them to make a career and to find friends. Young and beautiful
people are more likely to succeed and they are usually happier and more
satisfied with their lives.
However, plastic surgery has its own
risks including the body's rejection of an implant, allergy to anesthesia,
post-operation pains, prolonged regeneration and others. Some people have lost
their lives and suffered disfigurement and scarring as a result of plastic surgery
gone wrong. And even if you feel good after an operation, you may be
dissatisfied with results. Surgeons can never guarantee a 100-percent success.
That is why I think that plastic surgery should be used only to remove or
correct physical defects.
To conclude, it's important to
understand that while plastic surgery has a number of advantages, it will
hardly change your life or solve your problems. Think about all the possible
risks before making the final decision to have a plastic operation done.
