  1. READING

You are going to read a magazine article about working in offices. Choose the most suitable heading from the list A-I for each part (1-7) of the article. There is one extra heading which you do not need to use. There is an example at the beginning (0).

A A problem often overlooked

B Get regular rest

C Managing your meals

D More than just keeping fit

E Changing your mind

F Effects on others

G A variety of health problems that can be solved

H Learning to enjoy exercise

I A modern problem

Find your energy again

0 ____I____

The offices that most of us work in aren't the most healthy places in the world. If you work in a building that is more than 50 years old, it may not be perfectly designed for the office environment but it is probably healthier than one built recently. Even the best designed of today's offices represent an artificial environment where it can be difficult to stay positive and bursting with energy.

1 ___________

Complaints about feeling tired, no energy, no interest in food, headaches and backache are commonplace. Office workers often say that these health problems are the inevitable consequences of working in an office. However, this is not the case. While there may be little you can do about the ever-ringing phones or the tempers of your colleagues, you needn't feel unwell. There is plenty you can do to restore those energy levels and feelings of well-being.

2 ___________

The first thing you must address is tiredness. If at the weekend you stay up all night dancing or going to dinner parties and sleep all the following morning, you can't expect your body to adjust on a Monday morning to a completely different routine. Some people seem to keep this lifestyle up without any trouble but for most of us it isn't a good idea.

3 ___________

Our diets are another way we mistreat ourselves. Many office workers say they don't have breakfast - but you really should eat something, however small, before you leave the house. And if you're busy over lunch or have to go shopping, it's possible to forget that too. So you get to the evening and suddenly realise how hungry you are. This is a disastrous way to manage (or not manage) your diet. Nothing is more important than eating and drinking regularly.

4 __________

You should also do a session of exercise once or twice a week in the evenings. This will help you to get to sleep and wake up refreshed in the morning. Recent American research has established that regular, vigorous exercise is a good way of improving your mood and that the effects last far longer than the session itself. It does have to be vigorous though -walking or tennis have to be kept up for at least an hour to have a positive effect.

5 ___________

All the advice on exercise says that you should choose something which you like doing. To this, many people reply: but I don't like doing any form of exercise! Most people start off with the intention of exercising but soon lose interest. The answer here is you must do it until you get so used to doing it that you miss it when you don't do it. In order to motivate yourself, you need to keep reminding yourself of the advantages.

6 ___________

If you're working in an office with no natural light, you should go out for a walk for at least half an hour a day, even when the weather is dull and rainy. The importance of spending some time in daylight is often ignored. We now know that lack of sunlight can cause depression. It is, however, something that needn't happen because it can easily be overcome.

7 ___________

You may be bothered by some of your colleagues' bad temper or lateness. Think about how their behaviour influences your own state of mind and remember that you don't need to behave in the same way. You are much more likely to enjoy your evening or weekend if you leave work feeling positive and it's the same for your colleagues.

SCHOOL'S OUT

You've finished school, passed those vital exams and got a place waiting for you at university in the autumn. What are you going to do for the next ten weeks? Prize magazine asked five girls who've just finished school about their plans for the summer.



A Angie Hook has got it all sorted. I'm going to be pretty busy. First I've got to get some money, because I know I won't have enough when I'm a student, and the course I'm going to follow is really demanding, so I won't be able to take a part-time job in term time. So I've signed up with a company as a temporary secretary for most of the summer. Luckily, I'm good on a word processor and I did the same sort of thing in previous years, so I've got a bit of experience behind me, which is a big help. I am going to have a break though. Just before the university term starts I'm going to have a fortnight in Spain with some of the people who've just left school with me. My mum and dad are giving me the money for that as a reward for doing well in my exams, so I won't have to use up my savings, which is really nice of them, because I know it means they'll have less to spend on their own holiday.'

B Sally Price is less certain about her plans. 'I'm definitely going to have to work before I do anything else, because I'm so short of cash. I want to go away for a holiday somewhere by the sea, and I'll have to earn enough for that, so I've got to look for a temporary job first. I think I'll find something fairly quickly. After that, it'll be too late to find any more work I expect, because other people will have taken all the jobs by then, so I'll just have a month hanging about at home, messing around with my friends and things, spending time with my parents. That'll be good really, because I'm going to be a long way from home when I'm at university and I won't see them much.'

C Tracy Chadwick says she has little choice about what to do. 'I have to spend the last month of the summer break getting ready for my course. I've got a job in a shop for the first month until I go on my holiday. That will give my brain a rest and pay for the holiday. But I've already had this enormous reading list from the university, so as soon as I've had a couple of weeks' holiday, I'm going to settle down and get on with studying, because I don't want to be behind at the beginning of term.'

D Polly Targett would like to work. 'But the thing is, we live such a long way from town and I don't have my own car yet - I'm going to get one next year, for my birthday, but it's rather difficult to get anywhere at the moment. Well, there's a bus, early in the morning and I think there's one in the evening, but to be honest it's much easier to stay at home. I doubt whether I'll go away, because I've already been on holiday with my parents earlier in the year and anyway I'll have to do some studying before the term starts, because otherwise I'll just have to work so hard when I get to university there won't be time to enjoy myself with my friends.'

E Hilary Lee is going to start with a break. 'I'm really exhausted after all our school exams and stuff and so I'm going to have a fortnight with my parents, just relaxing completely. We're going somewhere abroad, but I don't know where, it's a surprise, a sort of present, because I've done well. I know it'll be lovely. Then I'll find a job, it doesn't matter what, just so that I can have some pocket money for the rest of the year. It won't be hard to get something, in a hotel or whatever, summer's the high season for businesses in this area. Then I'll spend a couple of weeks doing nothing much, I hope, perhaps I'll paint my bedroom or something. And that'll be it - summer'll be over. I'll be a university student.'
