Describe a place where you are able to relax

CITY Coaching Centre, Malerkotla

  • Where it is
  • What it is like
  • How often you go there
  • and how you feel about this place

Short Version

Everybody needs relax and they have different ways to do so. There are some places where people can relax such as parks, religious places, sports centres or recreation centres.

When I want to relax, I go to a recreation-place which is in my neighborhood. This is actually a community place in the centre of our residential area. It is an open space covering large area.

A number of trees and plants keep this place fresh, cool and pollution free. Many elders sit there on the benches under the shade of trees. There are some fruit trees also.

It also houses a small gym where sports-kits are kept and one can have work-out there. In one corner, there is an area for kids where they can run or play football. There is also a track for walking. I take 10 rounds every evening on that track and that gives me a good exercise. Recently, a big hall is built there which houses a swimming pool.

The best thing in this recreation centre is that this place is good for community gathering. People from around meet there, they gossip and feel connected. Every evening, this place becomes so lively. I go there almost daily. After walking for 30 minutes, I relax on a bench under tree. My friends from neighborhood also join me there. Then we gossip for some time and watch over the people doing different activities. I am happy when I am at this place.

So this is the place where I like to relax.

It is important to relax for some time to regain energy, to reduce stress and tiredness. Everybody needs relax and they have different ways to do so. There are some places where people can relax such as parks, religious places, sports centres or recreation centres. While Young people like to go to gyms or stadiums for relaxing, elderly people prefer parks and religious places.

Part 3 – Follow up Questions

4. Do you think natural sceneries are more helpful than indoor activities?

Yes definitely natural scenery is far more relaxing than indoor activities. Nowadays people are suffering from nature deficit disorder, which means that they are spending less time with nature and more time indoors.

Yes, I like to visit movie theatres. Once in a month or two I watch a movie in the cinema.

6. Where do Indian people like to go on weekends?

Relaxation is very important. It recharges one’s batteries. After relaxing people can work better and students can study better.

9. What are the ways people relax themselves?

People relax in different ways. Some go to parks, some go to religious places, some just sit at home and listen to music or watch TV. Young people have a lot of pent up energy, so they go to gym’s and discos to sweat out that energy, and relax.

10. What do you do to relax yourself?

Sometimes I go to the Religious place. Sometimes I listen to music at home. Sometimes I go to park near my home.

11. Do you think we should take a day off from our working?

Yes, we should take a day off from working, because then we can relax and go back to work with more zeal and enthusiasm.

12. Do you think people can actually relax by doing relaxation exercises?

Yes, people can relax by doing relaxing exercises, such as yoga, and other stretching exercises. Exercises also release endorphins, which relieve stress and help to relax.

13. Some people do nothing to relax. Do you think it is a good idea?

Yes, sometimes just closing ones eyes and doing nothing also relaxes a person. It depends on what sort of activities a person does in routine life. If a person does physical work, then just doing nothing can be relaxing. If a person does sedentary work, then other ways of relaxation are better.

(Same as above)

15. How did people relax earlier and how do they now?

Earlier people went out for relaxation, to parks and for picnics. But today, people go to shopping malls and restaurants for relaxation. Young people sweat out their stress in discos and gyms for relaxation.

16. How often do you visit parks?

My area is filled with parks and there’s a park very close to where I live, so I probably go there once or twice a week if the weather’s nice. I love to go jogging with my father in the early morning where we can enjoy fresh air and spectacular scenery.

17. Do we need big parks or small parks in the city?

Personally, small parks in the city are much convenient than big parks. Firstly, it would serve better quality for citizens in an area. Parks are places for people to not only get exercise, but wind down and relax. It would also create a friendly environment for everyone. Second, a big park takes up too much available space in the city.

18. Why is it important to have parks in a city?

Parts play an important role in a city. The foremost reason is that parks contribute to reduction of the urban heat effect. Another reason is Parks provide space for neighborhood residents to interact with each other and meet new people. They’re also great spaces for events and for people to engage in recreational activities. This allows people to develop a sense of community. A park is perfect for a picnic, a concert, or a farmer’s market – whatever your community feels it needs.

19. Do you like to visit movie theatres?

I love to spend time watching movie in cinema with my friends. That is a moment that we can chill out after working and build up our friendship by sharing our common hobby.

20. Where do people like to go on weekends?

In the past, most people usually stayed at home and spent time with family. However, this habit has changed currently. Shopping malls and restaurants have been increasingly opened and become the entertaining place for everyone, especially families with children. Moreover, officers participate in yoga classes or sport centres to exercise.

21. What do old people do to relax?

Stress in the elderly has many sources, including the loss of a partner, money worries, health problems and a lack of independence. They tend to isolate themselves at home with negative thoughts. Therefore, the elder people should be encouraged to find and maintain social contact as interaction with other old friends. Joining to a club or community service is another way to make them feel happier.
