Active voice vs. passive voice

Active voice is an important matter when you are writing research articles. Here are few tips:
"...Active voice more closely resembles spoken language; hopefully ideal spoken language. When we speak, we generally use the active voice without thinking. Our writing should become that automatic.

You would never say:
Passive: My car (subject) was driven (action) to work by me. 
Or:
Passive: Breakfast (subject) was eaten (action) by me this morning.

Instead, you would say:

Active: I (subject) drove (action) my car (object) to work.
And:
Active: I (subject) ate (action) breakfast (object) this morning."
