如何让你的快乐生活更长久

来源:上海育路网 时间:2010-04-26

  It's the one resolution you must keep this year! Start by taking inventory of what matters to you and what makes you happy. Then, work on savoring those experiences! Here, four ways to create more delight each and every day from Michelle DeAngelis, life consultant and founder of Planetjoyride.com.

  We all need a few minutes a day for "adult play," advises DeAngelis. Too much to do? Schedule "fun appointments." Go bowling! Cook for friends! "When you do something physical - such as laughing or singing - it's chemically beneficial and can get you out of a funk," DeAngelis says. Another joy booster: Share funny anecdotes, or tell stories. Every evening, ask your man to talk about the high point of his day - and you do the same. It'll encourage a positive conversation, instead of one focusing on your daily annoyances.

  Experience the power of choosing. If you feel like you're in the movie Groundhog Day - living the same grind day in and day out - take control. "If you could wave your magic wand, what would your life look like?" asks DeAngelis. "Even if it seems like a fantasy, there'll be a grain of reality to work with." If you feel you deserve a raise, for example, don't wait for your boss to bestow one on you. Choose to make a case for yourself. Knowing that you have choices will lift that burdened, "stuck" feeling, making room for more joy.

  Release what you don't need. Get rid of psychological and physical clutter: old fights, used linens - whatever slows you down. If you're trying to forgive someone, write a letter that you may never send, suggests DeAngelis. "You can even burn it after you've purged your feelings. The process is cathartic, and it'll make you feel lighter." When you're done, celebrate!

  Be present. Most of us are engaged in the here and now about 8 percent of our waking hours - the rest of the time is spent thinking forward or backward, dwelling in worry or regret, according to research. One strong sign that you've checked out of your own life: Friends are always saying, "I just told you that." "Improve your active listening skills by making eye contact with people. It conveys interest and connection," says DeAngelis. Life - and your relationships - are much more fulfilling when you're actually there to enjoy them!

  5 Things to Be Happy About Right Now!

  Postholiday sales equal guilt-free shopping!

  Snow angels.

  Four-wheel drive.

  The restorative power of a cup of hot tea.

  January 24: National Compliment Day.

  Don't deflect kind words today - accept them graciously and then spread the love.

  译文:今年你必须保持这份决心!首先,制做一份清单,罗列出困扰你的事情以及能够令你开心的事情。然后,尽情地体验吧!PLANETJOYRIDE网站的创立者兼生活顾问MICHELLE DEANGELIS在这里给出了能令你每天生活更加丰富多彩的四种方法.

  我们每天都需要一小段”成人游戏”DEANGELIS建议道.应付得过来吗?安排”娱乐性的约会”,打保龄球,为朋友们烹饪.”当你做一些肢体行为如欢笑或歌唱,能够让你摆脱畏惧感,这是一种通过化学方式释放心情的有益行为。另一种有助你快乐起来的方法:分享有趣的奇闻轶事或者讲故事。每天晚上,让你丈夫说说今天最令他高兴的事情,你也告诉他你的乐事。这样做能够带动积极的对话,而不至于将注意力集中于日常烦脑上。

  体验选择带来的力量。如果你觉得你的生活和电影土拨鼠的一天一样夜以继日的忙碌—该改变了。“假如你拥有魔棒的神力,你的生活将会是怎样?”DEANGELIS问。“尽管这只是一种幻想,它也能令你心情愉悦。”举个例子,如果你认为你应该加薪了,那就不要等待老板主动行动。要为你自己找机会。当意识到自己还有选择的机会,压抑的,郁闷的心情将随之豁然开朗。

  卸下无用的包袱。摆脱心理上和生理上的累赘:往日的斗争,用过的床单—让你身心疲惫的各种东西。如果你想尝试原谅某个人,那么给他写一封信,也许你永远也不会寄出这封信,DEANGELIS提议。“发泄完情感之后,你甚至可以把它烧毁。这过程令人通畅淋漓,你会感到轻松自在。”祝贺你大功告成。

  经常抛头露面。据研究,我们当中大部份人清醒时8%的时间都时时刻刻被各种事情占据着——剩余的时间都用来思考未来或者过去的事情,处于担心或者后悔的状态。这一强烈迹象已在你的生活中得到验证:朋友们总是这样说:“我提醒过你。”“通过与人们的目光交流改变你目前的聆听技巧。这样做能传达你的兴趣还能增近感情。”DEANGELIS说。当你真正去体验生活时,你会发现生活更加充实,你的人际关系更加令你满意。
