Do you have any unhealthy habits?
Well, actually I do… When I’m stressed, I [tooltip hint=”A bad habit of repetitive biting and chewing of lips. Usually comes up when person is anxious.”]bite my lips[/tooltip] and [tooltip hint=”A bad habit of unintentional damaging of nails and skin around them.”]pick my nails[/tooltip]. Moreover, I used to smoke cigarettes a few years ago, but hopefully I managed [tooltip hint=”Stop doing something that is a habit, especially something bad or harmful”] to break this habit[/tooltip].
What do you do to stay healthy?
I try to eat healthy food and do regular exercises… Also, I think it’s very important to develop a healthy lifestyle and stick to it… For example, I try to avoid eating [tooltip hint=”Food that is bad for your health because it contains hight amounts of fat and/or sugar”]junk food[/tooltip].
In your opinion, what is more important, eating healthy food or doing exercises?
Hm… It’s an interesting question… To be honest, I believe that it is crucial to do both in order to be healthy… However, if I had to choose only one option, I would choose eating healthy food, because otherwise, the risk of developing a [tooltip hint=”A type of disease that continues to occur for a long time”]chronic disease[/tooltip] of digestive system increases…
Now, have a look at the card and prepare a monologue
Describe your (or your friend’s) illness or injury experience. You should say:
- What was it
- When did it happen
- How did you (or your friend) handled it
- and say how do you feel about it now.
I would like to talk about a [tooltip hint=”An accident when two or more cars crash.”]car accident[/tooltip] that happened to me a few years ago and resulted in serious injuries… It was a horrible experience that I would not want to relive … my family was driving home, when a big truck crashed into our passenger car. After the accident I [tooltip hint=”Lost consciousness”]blacked out[/tooltip] and was transported to the hospital. When I regained consciousness, I discovered that I had five broked bones, several [tooltip hint=”Hematoma of tissue that happens when the tissue is hurt.”]ruptures[/tooltip] and many cuts and [tooltip hint=”Hematoma of tissue that happens when the tissue is hurt.”]bruises[/tooltip]. To restore the collarbone and leg bone, I had to go through operations, during which metal rods were put onto these bones to fix them… Not surprisingly, I was in a [tooltip hint=”Extreme pain.”]severe pain[/tooltip] (), so physicians [tooltip hint=”To prescribe a medicine/therapy = to recommend a medicine/therapy.”]prescribed[/tooltip] me to take [tooltip hint=”Medicine that lessens pain.”]painkillers[/tooltip] and other medicines for a couple of weeks. During my recovery, I wasn’t able to walk properly and my life then was very difficult. But after several months of proper treatment and physical therapy I fully recovered … I even took up karate soon after! Although the illness was definitely not a pleasant experience, I am very happy and grateful that now I am healthy… Probably, I leaned to value health and became stronger.
How can people be encouraged to stay healthy?
It’s an interesting question… In my opinion, government could encourage people [tooltip hint=”To start doing sports.”]to go in for sports[/tooltip]by making it more affordable and popular… Promoting [tooltip hint=”Healthy diet.”]healthy food rationing[/tooltip] on the television might be a good idea as well…
What is the best way of helping people with an addiction?
If you ask me, [tooltip hint=”A course of treatment for drug or alcohol dependence.”]rehab[/tooltip] is the best opnion for such people… Professional medical care is essential, if someone wants to overcome the addiction… However, it is also very important to have relatives and friends that would mentally support this person during this period of his or her life…
Do you think people start worrying more about their health as they become older?
Yes, without a doubt! When you’re young, you can affort to drink alcohol and stay awake all night long without damaging your health very much… But as you get older, your body demands more attention and care, therefore you need to worry about your health more and have frequent [tooltip hint=”An examination done by a doctor.”]check-ups[/tooltip]…
