    Default "how to release stress",please give some corrections!

    Topic:
    Life can be stressful.What can you do to prevent or release stress?

    In our present hustle-bustle world, people seem to live in a fast pace and think much of how to make more money or accomplish their tasks. So their life is prone to be very stressful.In this essay,I suggest some ways to prevent stress. Those are to enjoy life,take care of ourself and do what really interest us.
    For one thing, stress is sometimes caused by your attitude towards the life. You always take everything seriously , make them more important while there is nothing to worry so much about it. Moreover, thinking much of how to accomplish work best makes you nervous. Thus you have no time to think about others or enjoy yourself. Stress is inevitable. Therefore you can enjoy life by taking vacations to rural areas or to the beach. Fresh air, green trees and picturesque landscape will release your stress. Also , blue ocean or soft golden sand and the beach full of sunlight makes you more relaxed. Then you have a chance to think of yourself and you may come up with some creative ideas in these moments.
    For another thing,you should take care of yourself. After a hard working day,you can unwind yourself by having a warm bath, listening to some pieces of music you like or watching TV programmes that intereste you the most. Then youíll find that stress almosts gets out of your mind. Actually, if you donít care about youself, stress can be seemingly endless and life goes by boringly and tiringly.
    Furthermore, you can take part in some social clubs, meeting people and making friends that you like. Also, you can go out with your close friends to have some fun at places for entertainment or go shopping together . Or else, you can chat with your friends through internet,telephones . Also,you may buy some funny pictures and hang it on the wall. So whenever you get angry, look at it and laugh out loud as well as smile to everybody everyday to keep your spirit high. Even you can also cry aloud on your own in quiet places. The stress must get out of your mind.
    In short, these days, stress is inevitable. But the important thing is how to deal with stress effectively. Some ways to be considered are : take everything easy and enjoy life,take care of yourself and socialize with everybody.

    In present times, with our daily hustle-bustle , we lead a fast paced life thinking more about how to accomplish our tasks and how to make more money. This makes our life vulnerable to stress. Thus here I am suggesting a few ways to prevent and fight stress.
    One of the most important things we can do to tackle stress will be enjoying life to the fullest, taking care of ourself and doing what we like the best.

    Its important to note that stress results from your attitude towards life and work. Too much of thinking, worrying and burdening ourself about accomplishing a task can make you nervous and lead to unnecessary stress. This cramps your mind and you have no time to think about yourself, others or enjoy life, this nasty cocktail makes stress unevitable. Thus to overcome this, it is advised to take a break from work, go out to some peaceful place, close to nature, may be a beach or a hill station. Fresh air, green trees and picturesque landscape help in the release of stress. Blue ocean or soft golden sand and beach full of sunlight relaxes your mind and body. This gives you a chance to think about yourself and ignite your creative mind to churn up some innovative ideas.

    This is a significant improvement. The author used intelligence and scholarship to come up with an essay that is of value to the reader, and repays the reader's time. The essay indicates that the author did some research and bothered to plan the work.

    I don't know the names of any fun, teenager magazines that the author may read. I don't know if Mu+.c Ti'm, for example, is the kind of magazine I'm thinking of. But I want this student to write her essays so that they are like the articles in a fun, teen magazine. This student's essays are too dull and plodding, and written down to low. In the US magazines, this is the kind of article I want the author to copy in tone and directed at a teenage audience: Tips to Study for Midterms - Midterm Study Tips - CosmoGIRL!

    In our present hustle-bustle world, people seem to live in a fast pace and think much of how to make more money or accomplish their tasks. So their life is prone to be very stressful.
    > This is the right way to approach an Intro: Back up a little and put the topic into perspective in a larger frame.

    In this essay,I suggest some ways to prevent stress. Those are to enjoy life,take care of ourself and do what really interest us.

    > And this is the wrong way to approach an intro.
    1) ALWAYS delete references to yourself and to "this essay"
    It only takes a few seconds to think up a way to avoid taking about "this paper" or "this essay" or "I"
    Here are three great tips to help you relieve stress.
    2) An essay is not a dull textbook. The Intro should grab the reader's attention, not give him a boring announcement of something he is going to read for himself in about 10 seconds.

    The author seems not to have a reliable view of who her readers are.
    their life ... take care of yourself .....and do what really interest us.
    Who are you writing about? "Them?" "You?" "Us?"

    Since this is an "advice" essay, the person reading it is "you," and (to be friendly) the author can refer to "everybody" or "people" as "us."

    For one thing,
    This is an okay transition, but this article is a specific kind of article: it is a LIST. Most essays are not LISTS, but this one is. That means that the best way to mark off the points the essay is making is to NUMBER them -- because this article is a list. A better transition for a short list in a teen magazine is this:

    Tip # 1:EnJOy YoUr LiFE!

    Tip # 2:TAkE CaRe of YoURrSelF !

    Tip # 3: Do WhAt REaLLy InTeReSTs You !

    Now I realize that the author can't really submit an "essay" that was written for publication in a teen magazine. But she can adapt the magazine article and adjust it for school use without losing the tone or flavor:
    Here are three topic sentences that are also transitions for use in an essay that is a LIST, like this one:

    The first way to reduce stress is by adding enjoyment to your life.
    The second way to relieve stress is by taking good care of yourself.
    The third way to relieve stress is to do what really interests you.

    ---------------------------------------------
    stress is sometimes caused by your attitude towards the life. .... you may come up with some creative ideas in these moments.


    For another thing,you should take care of yourself. .....Actually, if you donít care about youself, stress can be seemingly endless and life goes by boringly and tiringly.
    -------------------------------------------
    One problem that came up was that it was hard to know what should come after the topic sentence. "Enjoy your life" is not exactly a topic that can be covered in one paragraph. The student did a good job in using a combination of "examples" plus "principles" to explain the topic sentences.

    The problem was that this stuff was pretty jumbled inside each paragraph, and the paragraphs do not move smoothly from "the principles involved" to "example solution."

    The paragraphs also seem unfocused and out of the author's control because they are used to elaborate on what stress is, or what it does, or why it's bad. These are OFF TOPIC, and should be deleted.

    Another problem is that the contents of the paragraphs are not differentiated enough. A hot bath with soothing music doesn't seem different enough from "fresh air and sunshine." If the advice in the first paragraph is "Take Breaks from Your Cares," then the topic sentence should be changed.

    I think the student should have done more work to find three tips that are really different: Meditation, for example, is not like any of the others.
    ------------------------------------------

    Furthermore, you can t......The stress must get out of your mind.

    This whole paragraph was nothing but padding. A jumbled collection of random suggestions does not add up to a paragraph.
    -------------------------------------------
    If the student had trouble with filling up the paragraphs, a better solution would have been to write five short paragraphs instead of three padded ones The paragraphs should all be written according to the same basic outline:
    One Suggested Paragraph Outline
    1) Topic sentence: The (ordinal number) way to relieve stress is to ____.
    2) Statement of principle: Example: if you donít care about youself, stress can be seemingly endless and life goes by boringly and tiringly.
    3) Useful suggestion: Example: After a hard working day,you can unwind yourself by having a warm bath, listening to some pieces of music you like.
    -----------------------------

    In short, these days, stress is inevitable. But the important thing is how to deal with stress effectively. Some ways to be considered are : take everything easy and enjoy life,take care of yourself and socialize with everybody.

    This is a terrible ending. The student does not understand the function of a concluding paragraph.
    ----------------------------------------

    1) The student should try to write essays in the style and tone of magazine articles, thinking of teenage girls as the audience. She should choose the presentation of her topics with this in mind.

    2) Now that the student is good at structuring the entire essay, she needs to progress to structuring each paragraph.

    3) The student needs to work on making the Intro and Ending paragraphs creative and suave.

    Writing an essay is not merely procedural, like solving an algebra problem. It is a craft, and creativity and judgment play a large role. Writing an essay is like decorating your bedroom. There are helpful guidelines and useful tips, but a good design for the bedroom, and the best way to place the furniture, and the skill and creativity of the decorations does not come from following a set of steps.

    You need creativity, judgment, innovation, freshness, the willingness to improvise to solve problems, and the daring and risk to break the rules to create something unique and special, and something that is just right for the purpose.
