Sample answer 1
The activity that I’m going to talk about today is jogging, a simple and easy form of exercise that anybody can do with little money.
As you might know, undergraduates are apparently very busy with their study so they barely do any exercise. However, that is not the case for me since I still spend at least 30 minutes a day going jogging to stay healthy.
Unlike going to the gym, jogging is definitely way much easier for beginners and doesn't expensive at all. Usually, after a three-mile jogging in the morning, I feel extremely stronger and full of energy. Sometimes I do jogging in the evening and it is also fantastic.
This type of exercise helps me to keep fit and refresh my mind after a stressful day. This is certainly another best benefit of jogging which improves my mental health and balances my moods. Also, doing jogging regularly like this can prevent numerous unwanted diseases, I have experienced the positive effects of jogging after three-month practice. It is clear that my body gets stronger and more flexible. Somehow I have been more resilient to stress and able to concentrate longer.
Because of these benefits, I will continue with jogging and definitely will recommend other people to do the same.

Sample answer 2
Staying in good shape is everyone’s concern and I am no exception. To be honest, I have been so caught up in my study since I entered university that I have a problem in organizing my daily routine. However, I have been participating in a yoga class for about 2 years, which takes me only 1 hour a day, to try to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Unlike dancing or running, yoga definitely involves stretching actions. You might look at yoga and think that it is light and easy but it is more demanding than it appears. Yoga allows me to work on all the parts of my body. It can burn a lot of calories in just one hour of training. Also, it enhances my flexibility and suppleness in every single movement.
What I enjoy the most about yoga is meditation. It is all about regulating your breathing and helping you take things off your mind easily. Another thing is that doing yoga is supposed to be good for curing headaches and digestion-related problems, so it benefits not only physical well-being but also mental health.
By maintaining a schedule of taking part in the yoga class on a daily basis, I feel extremely relaxed and full of energy after the class. It helps me to keep fit and refresh my mind after a long stressful day. And of course, I don’t see myself stopping practising this activity any time soon.
