    Topic 9th, May 2021: HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
    (The topic actually was discussed on WEDNESDAY, MARCH 23, 2016)

    “Health is not valued till sickness comes” - Thomas Fuller
    “It is only when the rich are sick that they fully feel the impotence of wealth” - Benjamin Franklin
    Young people, who are full of energy and eager to discover the whole new world ahead, may feel “hollow” or “theoretical” when you try to discuss with them about “a healthy lifestyle”. But they will soon realize that a healthy lifestyle would leave them fit, energetic and at reduced risk for diseases. Early recognition of healthy lifestyle practices would help young people make good use of their time and lead a more meaningful life.
    Healthy lifestyles could be defined physically and mentally. In terms of physical healthy lifestyles, people are advised to pay appropriate attention to basic daily activities including:
    - Eating: Good nutrition, reduce alcohol, fat and sugar intake;
    - Exercising: weight control, do exercise daily;
    - Sleeping: Sleep adequately;
    - Reducing Stress: Managing stress in positive ways, instead of through smoking or drinking alcohol.
    For mental well - being, it is interesting that advises given are very simple but of remarkable importance:
    -To enjoy regular family meals: This allows parents to serve as good role models, can promote more nutritious eating, and sets the stage for lively conversations.
    -To smile and laugh out loud several times a day: Read the comics, watch a sitcom, or tell jokes, raise a pet; forgive people and forgive yourself to bring out those happy feelings.
    -To have a positive attitude: Do your best to look at life as if "the glass is half full." You must believe in yourself, have good support systems, and think positively ("I think I can, I think I can…") to succeed.

    Questions for discussion:
    1. What lifestyle habits do you engage in that contribute to an illness or health condition you have right now?
    2. If you continue with these bad habits without making any lifestyle changes, what might your health be like in 10, 20, or 30 plus years?
    3. Do the bad habits you described above have any negative effects on people you care about or love? If so, please describe the habit and its negative effects.
    4. Can you think of any positive influence or hope you could bring to the lives of people you care about if you changed bad lifestyle habits to healthful ones?
    5. What thing would you love to do to change your lifestyle habits? What would be your goal?
    6. Who do you love or value enough to make the sacrifice necessary to break your bad habit and?

    Học tiếng anh: Phân biệt return home, get back home & arrive home

    (08:11:11 AM 02/10/2013)

    Bạn đã bao giờ tự hỏi sự khác biệt giữa những từ cùng mang nghĩa là trở về sau đây: Arrive home, Return home, và Get back home chưa? Hôm nay chúng tôi sẽ giúp bạn giải đáp những thắc mắc đó.

    Hẳn nhiều bạn đã quen thuộc với 2 từ come back và go back cũng như có thể nêu được sự khác biệt giữa chúng. Thế nhưng bạn đã bao giờ tự hỏi sự khác biệt giữa những từ cùng mang nghĩa là trở về sau đây: Arrive home,Return home, và Get back home chưa? Hôm nay chúng tôi sẽ giúp bạn giải đáp những thắc mắc đó.


    Học tiếng anh: Phân biệt return home get back home & arrive home
    Hình minh hoạ, chủ đề Học tiếng anh: Phân biệt return home get back home & arrive home

    Trước hết cả 3 cách nói đều có nghĩa là trở về nhà. Nhưng nếu như chúng ta chỉ đang trên đường về nhà thôi chứ chưa về đến nơi thì bạn đừng vội dùng get back home nhé, mà thay vào đó hãy sử dụng động từ return. Xem thêm: Học tiếng anh qua các mẫu câu nói thông dụng hàng ngày
    Do vậy, chúng ta có thể ghi nhớ rằng return home dùng cho trường hợp đang trên đường về nhà – on the way home.

    Ví dụ: Where are you going? – I’m returning home. (Cậu đi đâu thế? – Mình đang trên đường về nhà.)

    Chúng ta sẽ nói get back home khi muốn ám chỉ rằng chúng ta đã thực sự về đến nhà.

    Ví dụ: What time did you get back home? – About 7.30. (Mấy giờ anh về đến nhà thế? – Khoảng 7.30.)

    Cuối cùng, động từ arrive với nghĩa gốc là “kết thúc chặng đường để tới một nơi nào đó” sẽ được sử dụng với danh từ home để tạo nên ý nghĩa dùng phương tiện để về nhà.

    Ví dụ: The new car was fantastic. I arrived home 20 minutes early today. (Chiếc xe mới chạy thật ngon. Hôm nay tôi về nhà sớm hẳn 20 phút.)
