IELTS Band 8 Sample: Describe a healthy lifestyle you know

Describe a healthy lifestyle you know

You should say:

What is it?

How do you know it?

When you do it?

and explain why do you think it is healthy?


Model Answer 

I think people who live healthily always have one thing in common: they manage to strike a balance between work and life, between exercise and diet.

Even when you’re too busy, try to do some exercise or have some entertainment. You don’t need to go to the gym and spend 2 hours doing physical activity. Maybe just a small break from work and some stretching exercise is enough to keep you fit and healthy. Nowadays, more and more people suffer from a sedentary lifestyle so we always have to remind ourselves not to sit too much.

Diet is also very important. I know food can be very tempting but try to stick to healthy food, food that you know is hygienic and carefully prepared. Of course, once in a while, we can give ourselves a nice little treat, like the cheese pizza I had yesterday.

Drink a lot of water too, as water accounts for 60% of the human body weight and is key to effective metabolism.
