Health and body care
Health is the most important thing in a person’s life. It is the biggest personal property. Every person should think more about his health because when health is lost, everything is lost. Good health is better than the best medicine. And if your health is good, you are always in a good mood. But sickness in the body brings sickness to the mind. Taking medicines is an unpleasant thing, and if we want to avoid it, we should go in for sports, eat various food, be in the fresh air, do exercises. We shouldn’t wait when health comes like a bolt from the blue, we should do something ourselves.
As for me I take care of my health. I do morning exercises in the morning. It doesn’t take much time and I can feel bright, I can get back my energy, I can feel as strong as a lion. I try to take long walks in the open air as often as I can. But when the weather is not very bad I sleep with my window open.
Sport is very important in our life. It is a way leading you to the healthy life. There are many kinds of sport but I don’t like tennis, football or basketball. I like biking very much and I visit a lot of places in the countryside by my bike. Biking you can hear birds sing, listen to the sound of nature and enjoy the fresh air. It’s very useful for my health I think.
I have the strict day’s routine. I never do my homework very late in the evening. Evening is my rest time. All my lime is planned. I plan everything ahead so I don’t have to hurry.
I eat six times a day. I never overfeed. I eat a lot of vegetables and fresh fruit, drink fruit juice. I don’t eat sugar and fat. I use a little meat and salt.
I keep my body clean, wear clean clothes. Looking at a person who is clean and orderly dressed you can feel better too. Hairbrushes, toothbrushes are not lent. Every person should use only his personal things.
If a person doesn’t keep to these rules he can easily catch an illness. People who don’t do exercises, who don’t do morning exercises are not tempered so they can catch cold very often.
So if you really want to be healthy you should eat well-balanced meals, need extra vitamins, give up smoking and drinking.
Physically inactive people get old earlier than those who have plenty of exercises. So if you want to look younger you should look after your health.
Every one should know his native language very well. We start learning it in our childhood. Native language helps us to understand what others say and to talk. But it is very important to know foreign languages too. They can help us to associate with people from other countries.
I can speak and write English and Russian – two foreign languages. My native language is Lithuanian. It is one of two languages in the Baltic branch of Indo-European languages, the other one being Latvian. Lithuanian is the one of the oldest surviving languages in the world. It is distantly related to Sanskrit. Because Lithuanian language has changed less than other languages over the centuries, it’s important linguistic link to the past and has an important place in the study of how languages have evolved. Lithuanian is difficult for a foreigner to learn because it has a countless number of grammar rules. But there are a lot of foreigners who are eager to learn it. It’s very strange that some Lithuanian people are unable to speak their native language very well. They don’t try. But I like my native language because it makes me a real Lithuanian. I can’t say that I know it very well but I try to learn it more & more.
Every language has its history. Many years ago our native language was banned. Lithuanian books were secretly brought to Lithuania. This history makes our language more valuable.
I learn my native language at school. I also learn Russian & English too. I understand Russian better than English because I have been learning Russian it since the fifth form. I began to study English much later, so I can’t speak it as I speak my own language or as Russian. Today schoolchildren can begin learning English since their first form, so they’ll speak much better than we do. When I had to choose which foreign language I’ll study I have chosen English because it’s more popular then German, I think. English has become a world language, it’s spoken in all over the world. I like English language and I try to study regularly.
I hope that soon I’ll learn to speak it well. Other languages are very useful too. If you can speak in many languages you are happy person because you can associate with various people from various countries.
You can understand them and they can understand you. My English language helps me too. I can communicate with my friends from Denmark, Greece, the USA and so on. When I went to France I could speak to other people English as well.
