Sample Answer 1
To be honest, I am a very messy person, so when I left home for further studies, my mother prepared a plan for me to organize my activities and home. I try my best to stick to that routine, but I fail terribly. So, during my day off, which is usually the weekend, I try to clear my mess and then rejuvenate myself for the rest of the week.
Usually, every Friday evening, I try to chalk out what tasks I need to complete, like washing clothes, cleaning my room or stocking my food. Most of my Saturday is spent overcoming these hurdles and then I binge watch some shows or movies on the internet in the evening. But, if, by chance, my worklist is empty, then I contact my travel buddies and we use the days off to explore a new place.
Completing chores at home helps me keep my surroundings clean and avoid disasters. Moreover, as I love to travel and it refreshes my mind and aids in learning new things, it prepares me to deal with any hassles during the upcoming week.

Sample Answer 2
I am a design student at the National Institute of Fashion Technology. So, I remain busy all the time with my regular college work and want my schedule to change a little bit. At times, I feel staying away from my workload for some time will be pleasing. If I get such an opportunity, I plan to spend it on self-grooming and enjoy my self-interest and hobbies.
During my day off, which is quite rare, I like to spend most of my time working out in the gym. Unfortunately, due to my hectic schedule, I cannot go to the gym regularly. Apart from that, I help my mom with cooking and some housework. I would love to experiment with different dishes and enjoy the rest of the day watching familiar tv-series and movies. Then, in the evening, I take out my old cycle for a short ride and have golgappas near the streets with other local friends. Finally, at night, I gossip and video chat with my college friends and make myself happy for that whole day.
I feel we need to divert our minds and make ourselves happy and active every time we get an opportunity. As I get very busy with my college work, I cannot look through another side of the beautiful world. I get very stressed and sometimes get depressed. I think I should sometimes spend my day off with fun and merriment.
