Spring Days

Spring is the most pleasant season of the year. It comes right after the winter season. In this season a lot of climatic changes take place. After winter the sky becomes the canvas of nature and nature blossoms with all its colours as if it takes rebirth after winter. In this season migrant birds return to their home and a lot of animals wake up from their hibernation and have a breeding period. In spring days outdoor plans and spending time in nature fills the mind with joy.



Activity-8(b)

You have a separate routine of work in the morning and in the evening. Write a page in your diary on that part of the day which you prefer more.


March 28, 2022

Monday

9.00 p.m.

A routine is performed as part of a regular procedure rather than a special reason. A routined life fixes our life on track. I also preferred a routined life, so I divided my day into good times according to work. I wake up early in the morning and perform yoga for 1 hour. Then I get fresh and eat my breakfast. Then I study for a few hours and after that get ready for school. After school, I go to the playground.

In the evening I have my evening snacks. Then I go to study and complete my homework. After completing my study I eat dinner and go to bed. In the evening time I get tired after my whole day's routine whereas I feel energetic and fresh in the morning which encourages me for good study and a good start. So I prefer the morning time more.
