Bài nói mẫu, câu trả lời mẫu Ielts Speaking part 2 và 3 topic A health article / An article you read on healthy living (band 8.0 – 9.0):
Well, there is an online report about a work-based syndrome called “burnout”, which I found truly enlightening. It has changed my life, for the better. But let me tell you some background first.
Around 6 years ago, I got my first job as a tour consultant in a travel agent. In the beginning, the work was fantastic and payment was attractive. However, the longer I was in it, the less motivated I became. There were always problems arising out of tour programs and all needed immediate attention. I was expected to be on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and virtually, I couldn’t switch off from work at home. I thought I can cope but one day, I burst out crying right in the office and everyone was shocked. I had no idea what was wrong with me. I went online, did some searching and came across this article. Its title captured my attention as I had never heard of the term “burnout”. The report paints a vivid picture of what I was going through: my chronic fatigue, my constant cynicism about the future and my inability to keep going. I felt exhausted all the time and dreaded going to work every morning. The symptoms were spot on and I realized I was definitely getting a burnout. This article was a wakeup call for me. It urged me to take action to achieve a healthy work/life balance. I then decided to quit the job and I was glad I did. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I feel much happier and healthier at my current job.
I believe I am not the only one out there who has experienced a burnout. Actually, a lot of people are struggling with it without realizing it. I hope through articles like this, they will become more conscious of their health and find a way to get rid of the detrimental lifestyle of “all work and no play”.
