IELTS Speaking Part 1 – Topic Health
Questions & Sample Answers
1. Do you have any unhealthy habits?
Unfortunately yes. I do have a hectic schedule every day so I keep skipping meals. I know this habit is harmful to my body and always makes me feel under the weather. I’m trying to break this habit by creating a clear timetable.
2. In what ways do you try to stay healthy?
For me, the easiest way is to exercise on a daily basis. It not only helps me keep fit but also reduces my stress level. Other than that, I also have regular check-ups every year to avoid major health problems.
3. Do you do any sports?
Swimming is my favourite sport and I do it every day without fail. However, I’m planning to take up a new sport such as kickboxing or karate as a way to protect myself.
4. What are the health benefits of playing a sport?
Well, I have to say that sports do wonders for our health. Firstly, it helps us stay in shape and build muscles. People also do sports for entertainment and relaxation after a stressful working day. I guess that’s the reason why we can get better sleep after every workout.
5. What do you think is more important, eating healthy or doing exercise?
To me, eating healthy is more essential. You know there is a saying: You are what you eat. For example, if you eat too much fast food, you are likely to get obesity. In contrast, having a healthy diet and providing vital nutrients is a way to build a strong immune system and fight against any health problems. These benefits can not be achieved by only exercising.
6. Do you think more about your health now than when you were younger?
Certainly! Now that I’m older, I can feel that my body isn’t as fresh as a daisy as it was before. Therefore, I pay more attention to my health now. For instance, I try to get rid of the sedentary lifestyle by doing sports more often and going on a diet. I even visit the doctor once in a while to have check-ups.
