Let's Learn to Relax
"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" is a popular saying in English. There is much truth in it. It means that in order to keep ourselves in good health, we must take sufficient recreation.
Everyone has his own way of relaxing. For people who sit much of the time at work cycling is said to be a economical means of exercise. A good brisk walk is one of the finest forms of exercise, too. For people engaged in outdoor work, reading is an excellent change if suitable books are chosen.
I like sports and enjoy participating in them. My favorite sport is table-tennis because it brings the whole body into action. In fact, it doesn't matter whether I play a fast game of ping-pong or concentrate on the bridge table. It is important for me to relax from time to time.
