Today, in this mechanized world, workload can make us feel a little relentless. For this reason taking leisure time for oneself is extremely crucial. Due to different interests of most of the people, they prefer to indulge themselves in various sort of hobbies. Here, I would want to talk about gardening, which is the most effective way to relax for me.
Time spent gardening helps calm my mind, soothes ragged emotions and boost my ability to focus on the positive aspects of life. The sound of creatures present in the garden helps me detach from everyday agony and contemplate on the present moment for the time being. Though it is said to be an orthodox mode of relaxing, it’s can be really soothing if it interests you. Gardening is considered as the best way for therapy in several western countries as well.
I was lucky enough to live in a place with a garden of our own. Since my childhood, interrupting my parents while they were gardening fascinated me. Soon this habit developed into a hobby. Whenever I don’t feel like myself, I visit a nursery to get plants to renovate my garden. The fragrance of the freshly watered plants eliminates my tension.
The reason why I like this way of relaxation is that I can leave life related issues outside the garden. Gardening also helps reduce cortisol in my body as we are in peaceful company of nature. The sound of butterflies and birdsong, the color of leaves, and the aroma of flowers are captivating for me and it refreshes my mind greatly.
The IELTS writing test takes one hour. In this time you are required to complete two tasks.
TASK ONE is a report based on some graphic information provided on the question paper. With few exceptions, the graphic information will come in one of five forms – a line graph, bar graph, pie chart, table or diagram illustrating a process. You are required to describe the information or the process in a report of 150 words. This task should be completed in 20 minutes. It is important that you are familiar with the language appropriate to report writing generally and to each of the five types of report.
TASK TWO is an essay based on a topic given on the question paper. You should write at least 250 words in 40 minutes. It is important that you keep within the advised time limits as Task Two carries more weight in your final band score than Task One. Remember that illegible handwriting will reduce your final score.
