“I try to think positively [habitually].”

[00:07]

Hello everyone. What do you do every day? And what do you try to do every day (habitually)?

[00:22]

I try to have a proper breakfast every day, but sometimes I only drink coffee because I have no time.

Repeat after me

[00:33]

1. I drink vegetable juice every day.

→ I try to drink vegetable juice every day.[habitually]

2. I jog every day.

→ I try to jog every day.[habitually]

3. I walk a lot every day.

→ I try to walk a lot every day.[habitually]

4. I don’t drink alcohol every day.

→ I try not to drink alcohol every day.[habitually]

[02:08]

Now, make a sentence as follows.

For example,

Whenever possible, sweet, not eat

→ Whenever possible, I try not to eat sweets.

Ready?

[02:25]

1. whenever possible, Japanese, think

→Whenever possible, I try to think in Japanese.

2. whenever possible, not smoke

→ Whenever possible, I try not to smoke.
