What do you consider to be the most important room in a house? Why is this room more important to you than any other room? Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.
Different people are sure to have different views on which is the most important room in their houses. The bedroom, the sitting room, the kitchen may be their first choice, but I am unusual, for I hold that the most important room in my apartment is the bathroom.
First of all, no matter what the name of washroom itself may suggest to us, one thing that we can not deny is: none of us can do without it. As long as we are at home, we will always have to visit it now and then, from sunrise to sunset. Moreover, most of the making up, dressing up, shower or bath taking, occasional hand or face washing as well as self-appreciating in the mirror is done in the washroom. Therefore, the washroom is indeed important to us.
Second, the washroom is a window displaying the taste of the host or hostess. Whenever there are home visitors, the washroom is sure to be a must. How it is decorated, what the arrangement is like, whether it is cozy and convenient will always leave some kind of impression on the guests and accordingly, involve the host’s face need because they all reflect the host’s taste for everything.
Of course, this is not to say that other rooms in the house are not important. We all need to sleep, enjoy some leisure moments and have meals, so the bedroom, the sitting room and the kitchen are also very important. However, when speaking of the more private rooms that we’d like to open to others, the washroom will, I’m afraid, rank the first. Hence, in this sense, the condition of the washroom seems to be more critical.
All in all, with the importance of all aspects of the washroom taken into account, it becomes, at least to me, the most important room at my home. People have various ways of relieving stress. What are some of the ways that you find most effective in relieving stress? Give reasons and examples to support your response.
The way or ways in which people relieve their stress are very much different: some cry, some laugh, some overdrink themselves and some dance wildly, so on and so forth, to name just a few. However, the two most effective ways that work on me are sleeping in and taking long walks.
Now let’s look at the many advantages of sleeping in. Sleeping in may help ease our nervousness and give our exhausted nerves a break. While under pressure, we tend to be impatient and easily lose our temper which could only aggravate our feeling of pressure. Sleeping in once there is a chance can help adjust our nerves and this is conducive to getting over nervousness and tiredness. Furthermore, sleeping in can let us forget all about the stress for the time being. Once falling asleep, we would be free from thinking about the stress any longer and everything recedes to temporary tranquility, so when we wake up, the stress is not that strong anymore. Of course, we are unable to sleep in wherever we are and whenever we want to, rather, we need to find time, that is, when work allows us to do so.
Next, let’s take a look at some of the positive points of taking long walks. As we know, taking a walk itself is the best form of exercise that can help us keep fit, thus improving our capability to alleviate or eradicate pressure which in turn makes for our long-term health. Meanwhile, taking long walks provides us with opportunities to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding sceneries and to think over the problems in our mind. Therefore, we are actually doing exercises, feasting our eyes on the sceneries and thinking about things at the same time: all three in one, which means that stress or pressure becomes only a small part of the whole process.
In general, my own experience across the years has proved that the above mentioned two ways are the most effective in terms of relieving and even eradicating stress, so I highly recommend them to you and hope they would produce the same effect on you. 【已有很多网友发表了看法，点击参与讨论】【对英语不懂，点击提问】【英语论坛】【返回首页】
