幸福魔方:关于开心的几条法则

So let’s talk about happiness, or rather how we can go toward that goal. I think we can all agree that to be happy we should live a positive life. That makes sense. So, how then, can we make sure that we live positively? One way is to surround ourselves with positive things and positive experiences. Read good books, see good movies, have beautiful artwork hanging on our walls. We should eat delicious food, buy ourselves fresh flowers to greet us when we get home and attend all kinds of concerts frequently. . . .

让大家来谈谈幸福吧。到底如何才算幸福呢?相信不少人都会赞成——要想幸福,就得积极乐观地面对生活。话虽这样,那到底如何才算是“乐活”呢?可能,大家可以多去接触美好事物,譬如,读本好书,看场精彩的电影,或者用不凡的艺术品装饰大家的家居;再譬如,大家也可以享用美味大餐,买束鲜花美美地放在家,抑或多赴几场音乐会……

It is important to remember why we are living on this earth. What are our priorities: our family and friends or getting that extra bonus by working 100 hours a week? Which really and truly makes us happier? We only have one life, so let’s treat ourselves well, with massages and bubble baths. Never pass a playground without sTOPping to swing. Throw away our watches and maybe even try living without a planner for a day.

多想想大家为何要活在这个世上,而大家的优势又在哪儿?是亲朋好友要紧呢,还是拼命加班挣点辛苦钱要紧?到底哪一个更让大家快乐呢?一辈子有限,何不对自己好点,享受一下按摩和泡泡澡呢?路过操场时就荡下秋千吧!不要再争分夺秒赶时间做计划,偶尔试着放松放松吧!

Find the little things, like sunrises and sunsets, or tequila shots and pet rocks, that make a day worth living. And always, always, always have a reason to get out of bed in the morning–whether it’s the brownies you baked the night before or the realization that Thursday means "ER" is on at 10:00.

日出日落、一杯美酒、一枚宠物石……去细微察看品味,用心过好每一天吧。而且,必须要有一个勉励自己起床的动力:就算只不过为了吃块昨晚烤的巧克力饼,或者只是由于ER就在每周二10:00更新。

That way of positive living doesn’t sound too bad, does it?

这种乐活方法听上去还很好,对吧?

But I’d like to introduce another way of living positively. This previous way is inward-looking. The goal is to bring positive or happy things of the world into our lives. A second manner of positive living is more outward-focused. The goal is to direct our own positivity (if I can take the liberty of inventing a word) on the world. To perhaps even seek out the negative things in this world and work to make them positive.

不过,我要讲的却是另一种乐活方法。前一种方法偏向于“内聚型”,需要大家把外面的美好正能量融入我们的日常去;而第二种方法更侧重于“外散型”,就是把大家自己的正能量传播给外面,甚至需要大家擅长发现负能量,然后努力把它转化为正能量。

幸福魔方:关于开心的几条法则

This lifestyle might not appear so much fun, at first. We no longer can claim that it is for "positive" reasons that we don’t read the bad news in the newspaper. To the contrary, we must open our eyes and ears to what is happening in all corners of this world that is our global community. Sure it does no good to numb ourselves to all the horrors of the world by repeated contact. But we cannot solve problems without knowing they are there.

当然,最初这种生活方法可能不那样有趣。大家不必为了求得正能量而刻意不看报纸上的负面新闻,相反,大家更应该睁大双眼注意世界各地的状况变化。当然,总这么做大家可能也会变得麻木,但只有了解问题的存在,才大概去解决问题,对不对?

In this life, maybe instead of going to a concert, you will perform for others. Maybe instead of buying cut flowers, you will plant flowers in a vacant lot for others to enjoy. Maybe you will teach, heal, counsel, or write policy that changes the world. Building a house with Habitat for Humanity may come before that weekend at the spa. But look at what you’ve made at the end of a day! When you take responsibility for the world, bubble baths sometimes have to wait.

你这一辈子,可能不必去参加其他人的音乐会,而选择自己演一场给其他人看;可能不必买剪切的鲜花,而是在空地上种一片花海,给其他人带去赏心悦目;又可能,你可以教书育人、救死扶伤、咨询顾问,甚或撰写改变世界的法规政策。周末在享受SPA之前,可能你可以加入“仁爱之家”,为他人添砖加瓦。等这一天结束后,你会发现生活是那样充实美好!当肩负起整个世界的责任后,你会发现泡泡澡更不是那样要紧了。

But once again, I ask you to think about why we are here on earth and what is really important in life. What is the most positive way you can lead your life? As I said before, the key to a positive life is to always, always, and always have a reason to get up in the morning.

但话说回来,我期望你可以用心考虑:人为何要活在世上?日常最宝贵的又是什么?你的乐活方法又是什么样的呢?就像我在前面说的,乐活的重要就是——早上永远有一个叫醒你的原因!
