Essay topics:

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? People should have hobbies and do physical activities that are very different from their own work.

Modern people are tied up in a fast-paced life and feel overwhelmed. The white-collar class, in particular, has been deprived of time with hobbies due to tight schedules. Unfortunately, working under adverse circumstances, some people even devote their leisure time to hobbies as same as their own work in the name of professional improvement. From my perspective, pursuing hobbies and dealing with daily work should be rigidly divided instead of being inextricably mixed, which might be conducive to the quality of life.

For starters, most members of the working class have been facing potential health risks due to overwork. Major media have been advocating that picking up various hobbies and participating in diverse physical activities can address work-related stress, which may suggest that the prevalence of subhealth has drawn attention from the public. An investigation conducted by the New York Times has brought out that over seventy percent white-collar workers spend their spare time raising pets and engaging in team sports, which can mitigate the risk of mental illness. In contrast, the other thirty percent, those workaholics who are drowning in work during break time tend to isolate themselves from multiple forms of entertainment and suffer from depression more frequently. Evidence indicate that immersing oneself in various hobbies can help people recover from boredom and fatigue. Therefore, as long as people keep various hobbies consistently, they will enjoy sound health surely in the long run.

Furthermore, engaging in hobbies and physical activities which are extremely different from their work is beneficial to people’s social network as well. People living in the current days mainly have regular and canned routines, which means that they can merely contact with the same group of people everyday, such as their colleagues and families. Nevertheless, if they spend their leisure time taking part in some team sports like football or basketball, they may acquire more opportunities to make new friends, which can not only enlarge their social network but also broaden their horizons. By contrast, if their spare time are fully occupied by heavy work, they may be stuck in the boring and canned schedules, thus their lives will be all the same without novelty. Hence, it is crucial for people to allocate some time to their hobbies and physical activities without considering about the work.

Overall, in order to relieve the heavy pressure from bustling daily work and expand their social network, people can, and in many cases should, pick up a range of hobbies and physical exercises which are unrelated to their own work.

What are above readability scores?

Better to have 5 paragraphs with 3 arguments. And try always support/against one side but compare two sides, like this:

para 1: introduction
para 2: reason 1. address both of the views presented for reason 1
para 3: reason 2. address both of the views presented for reason 2
para 4: reason 3. address both of the views presented for reason 3
para 5: conclusion.

So how to find out those reasons. There is a formula:

reasons == advantages or

reasons == disadvantages

for example, we can always apply 'save time', 'save/make money', 'find a job', 'make friends', 'get more information' as reasons to all essay/speaking topics.

or we can apply 'waste time', 'waste money', 'no job', 'make bad friends', 'get bad information' as reasons to all essay/speaking topics.
