IELTS Speaking Part 1 Daily Routine

Can you describe your typical daily routine?

In my daily routine, I usually wake up at 8 o’clock and start my day with meditation, which I’ve pursued since childhood. After that, I refresh myself, and I take a bath and all. 

Then I make breakfast for myself. After eating, I go to work and come home around 5 or 5.30 in the evening. Then I start playing with my friends. 

After half an hour, I start making dinner for myself. After eating, I end my day by writing a diary. Sometimes I do yoga, and sometimes I watch TV.

That’s the only thing I do in my daily routine. 

What time do you usually wake up, and what is the first thing you do? 

As I said, I wake up at around 8, and whenever I feel too exhausted, I wake up at 8.30 to give my body some rest. I usually start my day with meditation. 

It’s 15 minutes with me. I sit in the corner of my house and start meditating. Yes, this is the way I start my day.

What is the benefit of meditation? 

Meditation is a stress buster. I used to get angry. But with regular meditation, my anger level has declined considerably.

What activities do you typically do during the morning hours? 

During the morning hours, I do yoga and meditation, as I said. And sometimes, like on the weekends, I prefer to go to the gym. 

After that, I started making my breakfast. And then I go to work. That’s how I start my morning.

What is your schedule like during the afternoon? Do you have any specific tasks or responsibilities?

 Well, yes, I have a lot of tasks to do in the afternoon.

Sometimes, I do my household chores, like cleaning utensils and making dinner for myself. And sometimes I go to the market to buy some groceries. 

Apart from that, I play with my friends. And sometimes I plan for the movies, especially on the Fridays. So yes, these are all the tasks I do in the afternoon. 

And there’s no specific task, but I do regular household chores in the afternoon. 

How do you spend your evenings after finishing work or school? 

 After finishing my work, I go directly to my home and shower.  After that, if something is going on on the television, I prefer to watch television. Otherwise, I scroll my mobile phone for 15 minutes, and after that, I start preparing my dinner. If I do not have any specific tasks, I start preparing my dinner. And so, after dinner, I prefer to play with my friends; a little walk would be good for me. 

So that’s why that’s all I think about after coming home from work. 

Do you have any activities or hobbies that you like to do in the evenings?

  My friends and I usually play badminton, my favorite evening sport. We can say that. 

And, like, I’m living in Canada now, and sometimes I call my mother because it’s morning on the other side, like in India. So, it’s the opposite time. So, I talk to my mother sometimes, and if I talk about my hobby, sometimes I play random games to have a stress buster for me. 

There’s no specific hobby or task other than badminton, my favorite sport. 

 What time do you usually go to bed?  Do you have any bedtime rituals? 

I hit the bed around nine or 9:30 because I’m an early bird and have to wake up around eight o’clock sharp. 

Therefore, I need to sleep between eight and 10 hours. So then, at any cost, I hit the bed at 9 pm after lunch and usually fall asleep around 930 or 945. So yes, there are no specific rituals. 

Sometimes, I write a diary of what’s going on and what’s happened during the day. So, it gives me some self-satisfaction and helps me take a good nap and sleep well.

How does your weekend routine differ from your weekday routine?

On weekdays, I’m a workaholic. But during the weekends, I am like a social animal. I explore like others; I like to explore different things.  Sometimes, go hiking and trekking. 

And, like, now summer has started, I would prefer to go camping not every weekend, just once in a blue moon, like once in a month. And apart from that, I love spending time with my family and friends. And sometimes I go to a club. 

And I also like to play games with my friends at home.

 Do you find it helpful to stick to a daily routine? Or do you prefer a more flexible schedule? 

A perfect schedule is really helpful for me. And so, till now, it has helped me a lot because, by planning, I can do my task at the right time. 

After that, I get plenty of time to do a lot of tasks. And if I choose flexible timing, I don’t think  I could finish my tasks in a given time. So, for that reason, I would like to plan my things. 

And I prefer the scheduled routine to a flexible one.
