Do you agree or disagree with the following statement:
It is better to relax by reading a book or watching a movie than by doing physical exercise.








I disagree with the statement that reading a book or watching a movie does a better job of relaxing than engaging in physical exercise.

Since most homo sapiens lead an overly sedentary life, physical exercise provides them with an almost completely different mode of life – a more active lifestyle. When one feels tired or stressed, it does not follow that working out would make things worse, because physical activities, even just for a few minutes, help to relax the muscles and relieve the tension in the face, neck, shoulders and other body parts. Alvin Oldman, a lead researcher of NC Health Center, emphasized that people who exercise regularly feel more energetic throughout the day, sleep better at night, and feel more relaxed and positive about themselves and their lives.

Then what about those who are not so enthusiastic about taking exercise or those blue-collar workers overburdened by everyday manual work? Reading a book or watching a movie would probably be preferable to them. They might curl up on the sofa at the end of the day, either opening their favorite detective series or travelling memoirs and reading voraciously for over an hour, or turning on the television and switching to a movie channel to enjoy horror or action movies as much as they could. In the light of the diversity of books and movies, it is safe to say each one is bound to have a good relaxing experience. After all, the distraction of being taken into a wonderland created by the author or director eases the tensions in muscles and helps them escape from the worries and stresses of the everyday world.

Which way is better to relax, of course, varies from one person to another. According to some psychological studies, a vast majority of people would indulge in eating to calm their frazzled nerves. Meanwhile, other studies point out that males tend to play computer games to relax while females often consider shopping as an effective way for relaxation. Therefore, as to the above statement, I honestly do not believe it is better to relax by reading a book or watching a movie than by doing physical exercise. They are just two different ways that could work for different people.



A/DA: People should take time to relax with hobbies or physical activities that are very different from what they do at work.


If you can change one aspect to improve your health, which would you choose? Why?

- The kind of food

- The amount of exercise

- The amount of stress


Spending a lot of time watching sports on TV and following their favorite team will have negative impact on one’s life.


Playing sports teaches people lessons about life.


A/DA: These days, children spend more time on doing homework or participating in organized activities related to school or sports. However, they should be given more time to do whatever they want.


A school has been providing funding for students who participate in after school activities. Now the school has only enough money to fund only one type of the activities. Which of the following do you recommend the school continue to fund: sports, art, volunteering.
