妈妈说的十件正确的事

Mom might not have known everything, but there were several areas where her advice was spot on.
妈妈不可能知道所有事情,但是有些领域她的建议是完全正确的。
It’s natural for young people to go through a period of doubting what their parents say and to lack the perspective to see the truth in the things they told us. But as we mature and grow older, we can look back on what our mothers (and other elders) told us and appreciate how right they were.
年轻人会怀疑父母所说的话,我们都会经历这么一个时期,我们无法看穿他们的话中所包含的真理。但随着我们慢慢长大,回过头来,我们会发现并感谢妈妈(和其他长辈)告诉我们的是多么正确。
1. If all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you?
1.如果你的所有朋友都从桥上跳下来,你会跳吗?
I can still hear myself protesting “But mom, that’s just stupid.” The truth is, I did a lot of stupid things in my teens and early twenties because it’s what everyone else was doing – or worse, what I thought everyone else was doing. Learning to do things because they are the right choice for me has been a key to leading a calm, contented life.
“但是妈妈,这也太蠢了吧!”到现在这句话仍萦绕在我耳边。事实是,我在少年和二十几岁时做了很多蠢事,因为其他人也是这样做的——更糟糕的是,我认为其他人也是这样做的。只做正确的事,这是过上美满生活的关键。
2. If you’re that bored, clean your room.
2.如果你很无聊,那么清洁一下你的房间吧。
Hopefully your room isn’t as messy as it was during your younger days, but there is a lot of wisdom in getting up and tidying or organizing when you’re feeling bored or blah. Not only will your home or office be neater, but giving your hands some busy work do to can help your mind get “unstuck” and provide you with inspiration for loftier things than cleaning.
希望你的房间在你年轻的时候不是很乱。在感觉无聊或类燥时做一些清洁或整理确实很有帮助。这不但会使你的房间或办公室变得更干净,手头有点事做更会让你的思维保持通畅,并且会给你提供其它事情的灵感而不单单是清洁。
3. Beds are not made for jumping on.
3.床不是用来跳的
Not only are bed frames not generally strong enough to withstand being used as trampolines, using your bed for anything other than sleep or sex can exacerbate insomnia. Make sure to reinforce the idea that bed=sleep by never watching television, working or doing other activities in bed.
不但床的结构不足以承受用作蹦床,而且在床上做除睡觉及性爱以外的事情会使你的失眠恶化。永远不要在床上看电视、工作或做其它事情,强化“床=睡觉”这一观念。
4. Play outside!
4.到户外去!
Most of us don’t get enough sunshine and fresh air. Spending time outdoors helps our bodies produce vitamin C and keep depression at bay. It’s hard to be your best unless you’re getting ample exercise and fresh air so the next time it’s nice outside, go play outside for a bit (or at least take a walk around the block during your lunch break).
大部分人没有得到足够的阳光和新鲜空气。在户外呆上一阵能使我们的身体产生维他命C,能使我们在困境时保持冷静。做足够的运动,呼吸新鲜空气,成为最好的自己。所以,下一刻,到户外去游玩一下(最起码午饭后在附近走一走)。
5. How do you know you don’t like it if you don’t try it?
5.如果不试一下,你怎么知道自己不喜欢呢?
Our preconceived notions can prevent us from trying things that could add richness and joy to our lives. Don’t dismiss things out of hand. Be willing to give things a try before discounting them. Stretch outside your comfort zone every once in a while and see where the adventure takes you.
我们先入为主的观念会阻止我们去尝试很多东西,哪怕会给我们的生活带来财富和喜悦。不要马上否决事情,在评价前先试一试。偶尔离开舒适的空间,看看冒险会把你带到哪里。
6. Don’t slouch, sit up straight.
6.不要无精打采,坐直了。
Good posture isn’t only more attractive, but it’s easier on your back, neck and shoulders. Sitting up straight is also more conducive to breathing properly, which can help relieve stress. Be mindful of your posture and work on exercising your core muscles to give strength to your abdomen so that it can support you properly.
好的坐姿不但好看,还对你的背、脖子和肩膀有好处。坐直对呼吸同样有好处,这会帮助你释放压力。时刻注意你的坐姿,腹部肌肉用力,这样会给你足够的支撑。
7. It doesn’t matter who started it, you end it
7.谁开始都没关系,重要的是你去结束它。
Often we waste too much time assigning blame and wanting the person who was in the wrong to straighten up and make amends. Unfortunately, that’s not always going to happen and it’s up to you to find a way to resolve situations for the sake of your continued peace and happiness, instead of waiting for the other party to take responsibility.
很多时候我们把时间浪费在抱怨上,并奢望那个做错的人会矫正过来且道歉。很不幸地,这很少发生。为了你的幸福,这需要你去寻找解决问题的方法,而不是等待其他人对此负责。
