Doing sport and keeping.
We live in a polluted world, that is why more and more people are concerned about their health and that is why more and more of them start going in for sport.
Sport plays an important role in people’s life. It is popular among the young and the old. Many people do morning exercises, go jogging and go to the gym. Others prefer watching sports games on TV and listening to sports news rather than going in for sport.
Physical Education is an important subject in Russian schools now. Pupils have physical training twice a week. Boys and girls play volleyball and basketball during the lessons. School teachers turn pupils’ training into enjoyment, not obligation. A lot of different competitions are held at school and many pupils take part in t hem. All participants try to get good results and win.
There are many kinds of sport in Russia. They are: football, hockey, skating and skiing. Russia is also known for its gymnasts, figure skaters and tennis players.
As for me, I do sport regularly. I am not a professional, I am an amateur. I play football with my friends and I jog in the morning. But my favourite sport is swimming and I go to the swimming-pool twice a week. This helps me feel fit and healthy. My father used to play football and hockey when he was a teenager but now he prefers watching these sports games on television. My mom likes watching figure skating.
But keeping fit doesn’t mean only doing sport. It also includes the right way of eating. Nowadays it is very popular to go on a diet. On the one hand, it makes you feel better because you avoid eating fatty and unhealthy food, but on the other hand, some people start eating very little and they lose weight and do not look healthy at all.
You need to get all types of vitamins to keep your body healthy. You should eat fruit and vegetable because they contain a lot of important vitamins and one of them is vitamin C. Fruit and vegetables also have fiber, which is very important for our health.
A lot of people like spending most of their spare time watching TV or working at computers. Such people ruin their eyes and their muscles do not work well. This way of life is not healthy. There are also bad habits that can damage your health. They include smoking, drinking alcohol and taking drugs. A lot of young people prefer smoking to going in for sport and this is not good.
So, I think that sport plays an important role in my life and in life of everybody in this world not only because that it help to keep fit but also because that it unites all people who are interested in sport.
