saving up money or spending it?
Saving money or using tomorrow’s money, it’s a question. More and more people prefer to use tomorrow’s money with the influence of western thoughts. But i
n my opinion, the first option is a better one. Several years ago, there was a famous story about this question. A story about the different life styles between an American old lady and a Chinese old lady. The American old lady uses tomorrow’s money to buy a house and pay back the loan in her whole life. The Chinese old lady saves money and buys a house before her death. This story is often used to show the benefits of using tomorrow’s money. Nevertheless, taking this story as an example is a little extreme. Using tomorrow’s money needs the following conditions：a steady job, a good wage and a light burden. Fifty percent of people don’t own these conditions, using tomorrow’s money may put them into trouble. For instance, if they can’t pay back the loan, the bank will take their houses and cars back. Although saving money is slow and hard, it is safer for us to hold our property. Furthermore, according to Chinese traditional custom, saving money is more acceptable.
it is difficult for us to keep fit nowadays, why?
Nowadays more and more people are concerned about their health. But how to keep healthy ？ Different people may give different answers to this question. In my opinion， it is essential to do the following.
First， it is absolutely necessary to take some exercise every day. Research shows that getting plenty of exercise make the heart beat faster and the lungs work harder. This strengthens the heart ， reduces the chance of heart attack， and helps lower bloodpressure. That's why more and more people are becoming active in various kinds of sports and exercises. Every morning many people get up early and take much exercise. Some practice shadowboxing and swordplay while others run， jog， walk or dance to music. In the afternoon，there are also many people keen on sports. Some play basketball or volleyball or table tennis， others go in for gymnastics or track events. Through sports and exercise ， people become healthier and stronger.
Medical researchers have proved that what people eat affects their health. They advise people to eat more fruit and vegetables and less
meat such as beef and pork because meat contains more fat than poultry and fish. Fat can build up in the arteries， block the flow of blood， and cause a heart attack or stroke.
Getting rid of bad habits like smoking and drinking alcohol is also an important way to keep healthy. Smoking and drinking alcohol injure one's health a great deal ， and therefore should be given up. Unfortunately few people follow this advice.
If people follow these three ways of keeping fit， they greatly improve their health.
