双语美文 | 做这四件事,让你比中彩票更幸福!
2019-06-22

 Most of us dream of winning the lottery, even if we don’t actually buy a ticket.

我们大多数人都梦想中彩票,即使我们根本不买彩票。

 

That shiny new car, a huge mansion with a swimming pool, luxury holidays and simply never having to worry about money again.

一辆闪亮的新车,一座有游泳池的豪宅,奢华的假期,再也不用担心钱了。

 

But according to a Harvard professor, winning to lottery won’t actually make you happy.

但哈佛大学的一位教授说,中奖并不能真正让你快乐。

 

Dr. Sanjiv Chopra, a professor of medicine, claims research shows a $20million lottery won’t give you the life you dreamt of, saying that most winners go back to their original level of happiness in just a year.

医学教授桑吉夫·乔普拉博士声称,研究表明,2000万美元的彩票不会给你梦想中的生活,因为大多数中奖者只需一年就可以回到最初的幸福水平。

 

However he claims there are four things in life that will make you happy in the long term, and the odds are much better.

然而,他声称生活中有四件事能让你长期快乐,而且几率也大得多。

 

Speaking during a talk earlier this year , he said: "Winning a $20 million lottery ticket won’t make you happier. Research has shown that after one year, lottery winners go back to their baseline. Some are even less happy.

在今年早些时候的一次谈话中,他说:“赢得2000万美元的彩票不会让你更快乐。研究表明,一年后,彩票中奖者会回到他们的基准线。有些人甚至更不快乐。

 

"A few probably spent their money on a big mansion or a fancy car. Maybe they spent it all on gambling. But even so, at the end of three months, it’s just a house, it’s just a nice car. You get used to it."

一些人可能把钱花在了一座大房子或一辆豪华轿车上。也许他们把钱都花在赌博上了。但即便如此,在三个月后,这只是一所房子,只是一辆好车。你已经习惯了。”

 

He then listed the four things which he says can make a difference.

然后他列出了他所说的四件能起作用的事情。

 

Forgiveness

宽恕

 

Sanjiv claims that the ability to forgive frees you from burdens of hate and other unhealthy emotions.

桑吉夫声称宽恕的能力可以让你从仇恨和其他不健康的情绪中解脱出来。

 

He says these can have a big negative impact on your happiness.

他说不健康的情绪会对你的幸福产生很大的负面影响。

 

There is also research which suggests letting go of negative feelings can lower the risk of heart attack and help anxiety and depression.

还有研究表明,释放负面情绪可以降低心脏病发作的风险,有助于舒缓焦虑和抑郁。

 

Giving

给予

 


He believes that getting involved in charities and donating money to good causes is one of the most fulfilling things people can do, and it can therefore improve happiness.

他认为,参与慈善事业和向慈善事业捐款是人们能做的最令人满意的事情之一,可以提高幸福感。

 

Gratitude

感激

 


During the talk, Sanjiv said: "There’s a wonderful anonymous quote that goes,’If you don’t know the language of gratitude, you’ll never be on speaking terms with happiness’.

在谈话中,桑吉夫说:“有一句绝妙的匿名名言,‘如果你不懂感恩的语言,你就永远不会和幸福说话。’”

 

"Taking time to think about what you’re grateful for makes you more aware of the positive things in your life.

“花时间去思考你所感激的事情,会让你更加了解生活中的积极事情。

 

He claims this will "make you less biased by the fewer negative things in your life".

他声称这会“减少你生活中对负面事物的偏见”。

 

Family and friends

家人和朋友

 


Sanjiv believes that our friends and family are the key to our happiness.


桑吉夫相信我们的朋友和家人是我们幸福的关键。

 

He says: "Choose your friends wisely and celebrate everything small and good with them."

他说:“明智地选择你的朋友,和他们一起庆祝一切小而美好的事情。”
