    Nowadays, fitness and outdoor activities are a main concern in the societies. There is a tendency affirming that people are doing less exercise and been more passive than before. This essay will discuss firstly the reasons behind and secondly possible solutions for this problem.
    To begin with, the reasons why individuals are now more passive and less fit than before is because the usage of technology, specially computers, smartphones and video games. Furthermore, since those machines were invented the society had reduced their time expending in relationships and exercise themselves, making the new generations more depended of technology. For instance, an article published by BBC NEWS revealed that citizens are spending 80% of the day in technological machines and only 5% of their time are active doing sports which is the lowest percentage comparing 10 years ago.
    Moreover, two possible solutions for this problem are the prohibited of technological tools in schools or other universities to promote active spaces of interaction, exercise and sports. Thus, since this problem is knowing, many countries are making new laws to obligate individuals to do sports and exercise. To illustrate, a case study sponsored by OHW (Organization of Health World) showed that measures like regulation of usage of technology and laws have an effective result in all countries that are with this initiative.
    To sum up, it is clear that the problem began with the addiction of technology and the lack of spaces to develop relationships and exercise. However, the solutions are focused in the regulation in the usage and the creation of new laws.

    Formerly mankind used to be more energetic,however in recent times more and more people are becoming unfit and inactive. This essay will examine some of the causes such as consumption of unhealthy diets, lack of exercises and propose some remedies to curb this canker in detail.

    First and foremost, I will digest on the reasons why individuals are becoming less active these days than in the past and one principal cause of this is that people nowadays consumed unhealthy diets. To elaborate further, at first people used to cook all kinds of food including breakfast, lunch and supper in their homes which were very rich in all the nutrients needed to keep one healthy, however due to the nature of our work schedules in this global world, most people have little or no time to cook, hence will all the time rely on the fast foods which have less nutritional values and over reliance on them have been proven to be the leading caused of non communicable diseases like hypertension and diabetes. Furthermore, individuals used to walk for a certain distance to the public transport station to take a bus or train to and from work, which was a form of exercise, but recently most people have their own cars which they drive to and from work. Again, people used to do early morning workouts before going to their various work places, however nowadays people woke up early and prepared straight to work without doing anything concerning exercise due to traffic congestions especially in the cities, for them not to be late at work.

    To tackle this issue, individuals should be encouraged to avoid patronising to much junk foods, but rather during weekends or off duty days they should try and prepare various meals and kept in the fridge to be consumed within the week. In addition, people should be advised to leave their cars at home in some days and take the public transport to work, which will make them walk for a while and by so doing they will be burning some calories which will go a long way to keep individuals fit and active.

    To conclude, sedentary lifestyle like inadequate exercises and not taken well balance diets are some of the reasons why in recent days more and more people are becoming unfit and less active. I recommend that there should be constant education particularly on the mass media on the importance of consuming nutritional meals and engaging in regular exercises.

Furthermore, in the past individuals used to walk for a certain distance to the transport station before commuting, which was a form of exercise since some fats will be burned, however recently most people have their own cars for commuting.

    To tackle this issue, people should be encouraged to limit or avoid patronising junk foods, but rather use the weekends or their off duty days to prepare meals which can be kept in the fridge to be consumed within the week. In addition, individuals should be advised to at times leave their vehicles and take the public transport either bus or train to and from their work places, which will make them walk for a while and by so doing they will be burning some calories.

    To conclude, sedentary lifestyles like inadequate exercises and not taken well balance diets regularly are some of the reasons why in recent periods, more and more people are becoming less active and fit. I recommend that there should be constant education particularly on the mass media on the importance of healthy lifestyle.

      Canker generally refers to disease but being inactive is not a disease so you cannot use the word canker here. ‘digest on the reasons’ you sure you want to use the word digest here?. individuals consume not consumed. in their homes not various homes. Form of exercise hence fats and calories were burnt is the right way to write. Patronising junk foods? Please completely understand the meaning of word patronising before using it. By doing so, not by so doing. exercises and not taking well balanced diets, instead of not taken well balance diets.

    sir here in task 1 i get confused.which tense i have to use?

    • IELTS MASTER says:

      Since the changes had already taken place so use the past tense. In most of the task 1 past tense is used. Present tense is used very rarely in task 1.

    The bar graph reveals the percentage of males,females and four age groups who watched reality shows and game shows in Australia.

    Overall,females were more interested and men were less interested in watching reality shows.People of more than 44 years were crazy about game shows, whereas adults of 25 to 34 age spend lower time in watching games.

    According to the graph,amlost 35% men enjoyed reality shows on television but, the figure of women reached its zenith nearly to 69% points.After that,a decrease of 8 percentage points had been observed for reality shows in the age group of 16 to 24. Subsequently, the percentage of reality shows of all age groups increased and approximately 68% ( here also points will come?)can be seen in the group of elder people.(it is good to use can be seen?)

    As per the graph, around 61% men spent time in watching game shows,while a reduction of roughly 1 points was noticed in women. Afterwards,the percentage of game shows fell down from close to 51% in 16 to 24 age group to 38% in 25 to 34 age group.Furthermore,the percentage experienced a leap around to 41percentage points in 35 to 44 age group and about 69 percentage points in the age of over 44 years.

    • IELTS MASTER says:

      ’44 years were crazy about game shows’ avoid writing like crazy about something, this is informal way of writing. ’34 age spend lower’ spent not spend. ‘amlost 35% men enjoyed reality shows’ almost spelling wrong and 35% of men. ‘zenith nearly to 69% points’ we have highlighted this mistake many times before you cannot write 69% points, points is used only when talking about increase or decrease in percentage. ‘around 61% men spent’ 61% of men. ‘the percentage experienced a leap’ you cannot write percentage experienced because percentage is not a living being which can experience, it can only increase or decrease.

    It is a fact that health is wealth and nowadays people live sedentary life as compared to the past.However there are several reasons which engender this issue,it can be mitigated with some innovatie solutions.In the following section both, causes and solutions will be discussed.

    Discussing the reasons ,the most common one is, people have become workaholics and they do not get free time from their hectic schedule for exercise. Consequently,they get tired ,feel lazy and suffer from several diseases such as sugar,blood pressure and diabetes.Secondly, junk food plays vital role in people’s health as there are plenty of food franchises in the market, they do not get time to cook food at home and nowadays online food order facility is available which provides home service.As a result,people eat unhealthy and too much oily delicacies which are harmful for the health.To illustrate, everyday plenty of people across the globe watch online menu and order online from zomato which is full of fat.

    In order to minimize negative influence, insecticides and pesticides should not be utilized in farming.Therefore, people will eat green vegetables which are grown by natural fertilizers. Furthermore,the government should start recreation centres such as park with jogging and walking tracks and gymnasium where people can everyday go for exercise.For instance, in India, Baba Ramdev has been providing free of cost Yoga facility to all people since five years.Thus, individuals feel relax and do not suffer from ailments.

    To recapitulate, if hygienic food is sold in restaurants and gymnasium is opened in every city, individuals will regularly start to go for exercise , eat food rich in nutrients and stay fit and healthy.

    • IELTS MASTER says:

      ‘both, causes’ comma should not come after both. ‘can everyday go’ can go everyday. ‘individuals feel relax’ feel relaxed. Overall it is a good attempt and with each attempt your grammatical mistakes are going down. Keep it up.
