Sample letter to your younger brother advising him to take part in sports and games.

Dear Saurabh,

Last Sunday, I happened to see Rohit, who told me that you study overtime. You have confined yourself to books and have completely ignored the other activities such as sports and games and physical exercise. It is costing you your health. Now your fitness level has declined. You frequently fall ill. Certainly, it is a cause of concern. Your family also must be worried on this count. Study is certainly good, but when it cuts down your other activities and you are lost in the world of book, it is not a good sign.

You might have heard that ‘all work and no play make Jack a dull boy’. There is no denying the fact that a sound mind is in a healthy body. One cannot enjoy a life when one is mentally fit but physically unfit. Physical fitness is as important as mental health.


To maintain fitness you need to involve yourself in other physical activities. You may go for a morning walk. Jogging is also a good exercise. Cycling, swimming, skipping and many others are various forms of physical activities which can help you in maintaining both fitness and health. Moreover, it also offers you a change from the monotony of reading all the time. As you know, change is the spice of life. By being physically fit you will be in a good mental health to enjoy reading. So, change your routine and give little time to other physical activities.

I hope you will act upon my advice.

Your loving brother,
