And no one can deny it

Your will they’ll mend
And charge you not a shilling.

8.Let’s discus the
problem what good health depends on.

Pupils had to prepare the useful
information and pictures for our collage Healthy lifestyle. So let’s listen to


They give information about  healthy food.

They present the information about  sport .

Example There are a few healthy habits
which can be followed in daily routine life.

We are sure that fitness and
exercises are the main part of the healthy lifestyle.

Don’t always  sit around-exercise regularly- three times a

Help your parents with the
homework- often.

There is nothing like an early
morning walk to start with. A good brisk walk of about 30 minutes will recharge
your batteries for the day. Avoid polluted areas for a walk. A couple of rounds
in a nearby park will pump your spirits up. If you are game for company,
motivate your neighbours to join.

Sports Help You Lose Weight. Combining a
healthy diet with exercise is the only way to lose weight and keep it off

Sports Can Help Manage Stress

Sports Help You Avoid Disease

Sports Make You Look and Feel Better.


This group presents the information about healthy habits.
Example.  Habits are acts repeatedly done every day

How can you develop desirable health habits? 1. Provide a schedule for
the practice of your health habits.

 Personal hygiene. Have a definite time for bathing, brushing of
teeth, and dressing. Children should know how to perform each activity

  Sleep and rest. Enough time
should be given for sleep. Have a definite time when you need to go to bed at
night and even the time that you need to wake up. You can also have your siesta
time after lunch. Give your body a brief rest like thirty minutes to one hour
before starting to work in the afternoon.

Develop habits of neatness and cleanliness. How can you do this? You can
start by making your own bed. Keep your shoes, bags and other things clean,
neat and orderly. Know where to place your clean as well as your dirty clothes.
Learn when and how to hang your dresses properly. Arrange your bedroom to keep
it neat, beautiful and clean. Try to follow the motto that “There is a place
for everything and everything must be in its place”.

Acquire habits of respect and reverence for elders. Respect for parents
and elders is a timeless and valuable tradition that must be instilled early in

Wear natural clothing
The skin needs to “breathe” in order to remove gaseous and liquid
wastes. Wool, cotton, silk — these are natural. Polyester and other man-made
materials hamper our skin’s function. These artificial materials also contain
undesirable chemical compounds.

Group4 prepares  the information about the positive attitude to  the world.
Examle Good laugh is also very
important for our health

Laugh, smile, giggle, make
good jokes as often as possible. Try to be friendly and kind if you want to
keep your health

When thinking about their
health only few people realize that jokes, humor and comedy are truly
medicines, in their own right. It has long been established that optimists live
longer than pessimists, but now there is some hard evidence that people with a
better sense of humor also have longer and healthier lives.

Humor is an invaluable asset
in crisis situations, when it helps us calm down and reduce the levels of
stress (and all the negative effects stress has on health).


Sing, dance and

That’s the way we
spend the day

Having fun we can
laugh the day way

‘Cause when we sing
all day long

We get smart and
grow strong while we play

When you sing you
can feel your spirits rise

And it makes you
feel good inside

When you dance you
get good exercise

And that’s good for
your body and it’s good for your mind

So sing, dance and

We can do it

With Dad and Mom
and our whole big family

And if we learn
while we play

Singing dancing all
the way

Then learning’s fun for you
and me
