Talk about your daily routine (Part 2/3)

“Talk about your daily routine” is a topic that appear on the IELTS test. The interviewer can also bring up this topic during a college entrance interview or job application.

Talk about your daily routine – Office staff

You should say:

  • How do you start your day
  • How long have you been following this routine
  • Your favourite time and activity of the day.
  • And explain what you do on a typical day of your life.

Sample Answer

My alarm goes off at 7 a.m. every day since I work in an office. Before getting out of bed, I typically take a few minutes to stretch and activate my body. My daily routine then begins, which includes taking a shower, dressing, and eating a quick breakfast.

I’ve been sticking to this schedule for a while now, and it helps me get set for the day ahead. I discovered that taking a shower in the morning makes me feel revived and prepared to face any difficulties that may come my way.

The middle of the morning, which is around 10 a.m., is my best time of the day. During this time, I’ve typically gotten comfortable with my job, had a chance to catch up on emails, and have planned out my day’s tasks. This is a good opportunity for a short break during which I can make a cup of coffee or have a chat with my coworkers.

I attend meetings, work on tasks, and answer emails for the rest of the day. I try to take periodic pauses throughout the day to stretch and rest my eyes. I’ve discovered that this keeps me motivated and focused, particularly when I have a lot of work to do.

After work, I try to fit in as much exercise or other stress-relieving activities as I can. This could involve taking a stroll, doing yoga, or reading a novel. I believe it’s essential to set aside some time for myself so that I can recharge and get ready for the next day.

Follow Question Part 3: Daily routine

1. Do you think it is possible to learn how to manage your time?

Yes, I strongly believe that it is possible to develop efficient time management skills. With effort and practice, one can improve their ability to manage their time. You may learn how to spend your time better and do more activities in less time by setting goals, prioritising work, and making a timetable. While it’s vital to note that everyone has different schedule demands and that what works for one person may not work for another, anyone can develop better time management skills with patience and persistence.

2. Why do some people don’t plan their day in advance?

There are plenty of reasons why some people don’t schedule their days in advance. Some people might prefer to work aimlessly and complete chores as they pop up, while others might not have the practice of planning their days or might not recognize the advantages of efficient time management. Additionally, some people might not be aware of the benefits of day planning so they fail to give it priority in their routine.

3. What are some advantages of using an app on smartphones to manage your time?

It initially enables you to monitor your progress and manage your activities more effectively. You can effortlessly arrange your day and set reminders and deadlines. Second, you can quickly update or adjust your tasks and schedule whenever you need to by logging in from any location. Thirdly, some apps offer insights and analytics that can be used to detect habits, monitor your productivity, and make changes to your time management. Finally, by enabling you to better manage your workload and prevent last-minute rushes, utilising a time management tool can help you feel less stressed.
