Comment on the following statement:
| Many teenagers enjoy playing computer games. Some people, however, believe that teenagers should spend their free time doing more physical activities. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that instead of playing computer games teenagers should spend their free time on physical activities, whereas others do not agree. They believe that computer games are not bad at all.
I think that there is nothing wrong with playing computer games. First of all, some of them are educational, others are interactive and they are all a lot of fun. Nonetheless, one should not spend too much time playing them. Sitting in a chair for hours is not healthy. That is why outdoor activities are so important, and they are no less fun. There should be a healthy balancebetween the two.
At the same time there are people who believe teenagers should spend more time doing physical activities. They think that playing computer games is nothing but a waste of time and it is far more important for them to develop physically.
In my opinion these people have a point. Some teenagers just do not know when to stop and keep on playing for hours in a row, forgetting to eat or sleep, let alone do physical activities. However, I think that playing computer games is not a bad thing in itself. People just need to learn to not over do it. If one is disciplined, one can do both: play computer games with no harm to one’s health and do physical activities. It does not have to be all one and not the other.
In conclusion, I would like to say that computer games have become a part of our lives. Nevertheless, we should make sure they do not become our lives. Physical activities are very important if we want to be healthy and strong, we should become disciplined enough to make both of them a part of our daily routine.
Some people say that computer games are one of the best ways of spending free time, whereas others do not agree with them. They believe that it is better to do sports.
Personally, I think that physical activities are better and more useful. First of all, sport exercises help you be in good shape. I always do sport activities at school that help me to be slim and fit. Second, regular sport activity develops attentiveness and builds up your character. When I started playing sport games at school my marks improved. We also have a saying, “A good spirit dwells in a healthy body”.
At the same time there are people who prefer computer games. They are sure that those games train memory and reflexes. They are also relaxing and therapeutic as well as educational.
As the matter of fact these people have a point. Some games might be useful. However, playing computer games can damage your eyes, while sport exercises cannot do any harm, if you do them properly with a coach or trainer.
In conclusion, I would like to say that there are a lot of ways to spend your free time. Some prefer computer games but as for me, I prefer physical activities because they strengthen your health and discipline your life.
