Task 16. Read the following text to have an idea of the daily routine men have in the army.

In the Royal Welsh Army

Due to the nature of the job your daily routine will always be different but in camp the average day starts at about 08.00am. The day may start with general duties or sport. No two days are the same.

After a shower and breakfast you will move on to training, this could be learning new skills such as driving, Fieldcraft, firing weapon systems and may include maintaining infantry skills, communications, field craft, drill, map reading and shooting. The average day finishes at about 4.30 pm.

Meals are served in the Regimental Restaurant. The chefs provide a high standard of food with a choice of hot dishes or salads and you are guaranteed to have food provided 3 times a day, every day, with no need for cooking or cleaning. All you have to do is turn up.

When you are on exercise or operations these timings are obviously a lot more flexible and the days can be much longer. However, everyone enjoys the deployments because you are able to put into practice your skills.

In addition you will receive extra pay and allowances and be reimbursed your food and accommodation charges.

The single soldiers are normally accommodated in their own en-suite, (this is dependant on location and Operation) one-man room; you are responsible for keeping your room clean and tidy. You can layout your room, as you wish, your living space is very much a personal thing. TV, Telephone and Internet connections are in most room, but you will be responsible for the bills if you want to make use of these facilities.

There are six rooms in every flat and you will live here with your colleagues. Each flat has a kitchen, sitting room, storeroom and laundry room. The Regimental Recruiting teams run regular visits for potential recruits to come and see the Regiment. It is free, and there is no obligation to take things further if you don’t want to.

Task 17. In the text below there is information about the possibilities of adding exercise into daily life. What would you choose for yourself?

Add exercise into your daily life

We all know we should add exercise into our daily lives, but when it comes to actually doing it, we all have our excuses, but it all boils down to one thing.

"I don't have the time."

That doesn't have to be the case though. There are things we can do every day to add a little exercise into our lives without taking away from everything else that we already do. And better yet, none of them require a gym membership. Just try to use the following:

§ consider skipping the car as often as possible. When running to the carry out down the street or the neighbour’s house, leave the car at home, and just walk.

§ pick a parking spot in the back of the lot. That extra walk will add a quick burst of physical activity into your daily life.

§ take the stairs as much as possible, even if its only upstairs at your house, and skip the escalator at the mall.

§ take a walk during your lunch break. How many of us finish out lunch, and then spend the rest of our break gossiping with co-workers or checking email? Get up and get started on a quick walk. Even if its only for a few minutes, its still exercise.

If you're really looking to add some serious exercise without giving up any time, consider adding physical activities to your daily routine.

§ work out while in the shower; add some squats or dead lifts while waiting for your deep conditioner to take effect, and you can keep singing too!

§ instead of calling your co-worker with a question, take the time to walk across the office and ask the question in person. Plus it will help keep you updated on that gossip you missed at lunch.

§ get your friends involved. Try replacing a drink after work with a long walk where you can catch up with each other.

§ work out during commercial breaks. Do a few squats while the ads are running, or better yet keep a set of barbells next to the television and do curls. Having them there will be a constant reminder to add some exercise.

§ if you are only buying a few things at the grocery store, grab a basket and skip the cart. Make sure you alternate which arm you use to carry the basket.

§ take periodic breaks. For every 30 minutes you spend sitting in front of the television or typing on the computer, get up and walk around the room.

Task 18. Do you know the daily routine of the Indians? Read the following article and you’ll get to know how one Indian remained happy in America using his authentic daily routine.

Bring Happiness to Your Daily Life

The writer, a senior citizen, came on an eight-week holiday to America. Far away from my home in India, I had doubts whether it would be possible for me to maintain my calm and happy state of mind, which I have been cherishing for many years. However, soon after my arrival I discovered, for me and for persons like me it is possible to live without any basic change in the daily routine. I could design my time and day to fit in with my basic objective of being happy. It proved to be an enlivening and enriching experience preserving the peace I treasured most.

Overcoming the jet lag, daily I get up at 5 a.m. brush my teeth and gulp a glass of cold water. Prayer, followed by reading of scriptures for forty-five minutes, is the next event. I perform my regular physical exercise consisting of various postures of yoga for the next forty minutes. This is done with rhythmic breathing, which tones up the system. Resting for fifteen minutes I go for a long walk at 7 a.m. with my wife, inside the subdivision of Cobb County along the side path enjoying and appreciating the sight of beautiful tall trees skirting the roads, backyard of homes, the colourful gardens and well-laid lawns on either side. To match the distance of four miles which I daily covered in my home land, I go round the cul de sacs in the entire subdivision, walk up to the exit road leading to the highway, return and complete one full round of the subdivision. The weather and breeze add to my pleasant feeling and well - being.

My Weekend

(1) Every weekend is important to my family. During the week we don’t have very much time for each other, but we spend mostly all the time together at the weekend.

(2) On Saturday morning I can sleep more, so I get up later than usual. I get up slowly and try to enjoy every second of my rest. At last I go to the bathroom to trim myself. When the teeth are brushed and the face is washed I come to the kitchen. Breakfast is already cooked by my mother. While we are eating, we discuss our plans for the weekend. But of course, first business, then pleasure.

(3) After breakfast cleaning begins. The washing-up is done by my sister, the carpets are hoovered by my father and linen is ironed by me. At that time Mum is cooking something special for dinner.

(4) We are a very active family, so on Saturdays we tend to enjoy the outside life. We love cycling, running and riding, although I must admit I’m not nature’s greatest horseman. Then there is swimming - just to get rid of all the week’s aggression. In the evening, tired but happy, we have a tasty meal and watch TV in the living-room. Sometimes, when I am in the mood, I go clubbing with my sister.

(5) And Sunday means meeting with family friends and lunch. There are a number of excellent cosy cafes in our town and we would normally meet up with friends in one of them. After a good talk the afternoon is usually turned into a picture of laziness. In the evening my sister, who is a professional pianist, organizes some concerts for us. Meanwhile I have time to arrange everything for the coming week.

(6) Finally I give a big kiss to my parents and go to bed. Another weekend is gone, and I am already looking forward to the next one to be with my family.
