Imagine that you are doing a project on the major reasons for negative lifestyle choices students have in Zetland. You have found some data on the subject – the results of the opinion polls (see the bar chart below).
Comment on the data in the bar chart and give your opinion on the subject of the project.
- Lack of willpower – 44%
- Laziness – 26%
- Ignoring healthy habits – 18%
- Maintaining a bad routine – 8%
- Not noticing the consequences of bad habits – 4%
Write 200-250 words.
Use the following plan:
– make an opening statement on the subject of the project;
– select and report 2–3 facts;
– make 1–2 comparisons where relevant and give your comments;
– outline a problem that can arise with leading an unhealthy lifestyle and suggest a way of solving it;
– conclude by giving and explaining your opinion on the role of lifestyle habits in students’ lives.
Unhealthy lifestyles may increase stress, reduce life expectancy, trigger depression, result in obesity/ being overweight, etc.
Identify the bad or unhealthy habits in your life that you want to change. Then, for each habit come up with the reason you want to change.
Remove the negative triggers in your life.
Believe that you can change. Half the battle in finding success is telling yourself you can do something. Ignore your negative self-talk and replace it with a visualization of you finding success in the changes you want to make.
Know that it will take time and you might have setbacks. Changing is not easy and there might be days where you fail. Instead of letting that failure win, just continue working hard.
Make a plan with goals and take baby steps. Just like you have a schedule you have to follow at work or at home with certain tasks you have to complete. Your new healthy lifestyle should also have tasks and a plan to follow.
