  我们培养习惯,习惯塑造我们。

  01

  Be grateful

  学会感激

  Slow down, look around you, and pay attention to the little details in your life – the delicate purple flower on the sidewalk, the beautiful sunset, the hot shower that washes away your long day, and the smile in your partner’s eyes.

  让自己变慢脚步,看看你的四周,关注生活中的细微之处:人行道上淡紫色的花,美丽的日落,洗去你一天疲惫的淋浴,伴侣眼中的笑容。

  When you have a grateful heart that is appreciative of life’s beautify, wonder and blessings, you’re automatically filled with happiness.

  当你的感恩之心能够欣赏生活的美,思考和祝福,你自然就充满了幸福感。

  02

  Choose your friends wisely

  明智地选择自己的朋友

  According to Harvard, the most important external factors affecting individual happiness are human relationships.

  哈佛大学的一个研究结论就是,影响个人幸福最重要的外部因素是人际关系。

  So if you want to be happy, choose to be around people who are optimistic, who appreciate you as you are, and who can make your life richer, bigger, more fun, and more meaningful.

  所以如果你想变得开心的话,要选择和乐观的朋友在一起,他们能欣赏真实的你,让你的生活变得更丰富、快乐、有意义。

  03

  Cultivate compassion

  培养同情心

  When we try to step into other people’s shoes and understand a situation from another’s perspective, we’re more likely to handle the situation with compassion, objectivity and effectiveness. There will be less conflicts and more happiness.

  当我们代替别人,站在另一个角度看问题,我们更能用同情心,客观和有效地处理问题。生活中就会少一些冲突,多一点快乐。

  04

  Keep learning

  不断学习

  Learning keeps us young and dreams keep us alive. When we engage our brains and put them toward productive uses, we’re less likely to dwell on unhappy thoughts and much more likely to feel happy and fulfilled.

  学习让我们保持年轻,梦想让我们充满活力。我们运用大脑,进行运作的时候,我们就不大会想不开心的事情,我们会变得更开心和满足。

  05

  Become a problem solver

  学会解决问题

  Happy people are problem solvers. When they encounter a challenge in life, they don’t beat themselves up and fall into a depressive state. Instead, they face up to the challenge and channel their energies toward finding creative a solution.

  开心的人是会解决问题的人。在生活中遇到挑战的时候,他们不会自虐,然后变得很消沉。他们会直面挑战,调动全身力量寻找解决办法。

  By becoming a problem solver, you’ll build up your self-confidence and your ability to accomplish whatever it is you set your mind to – and whatever challenges life throws your way.The result? You’ll have more happiness in your life.

  通过变成一个解决问题的人,你会建立自己的自信心和下决心要的事情和直面挑战的能力。结果是你在生活中将更加拥有更多快乐。

  06

  Do what you love

  做你想做的事情

  Since we spend over one-third of our adult life working, loving what we do has a huge impact on our overall happiness. It’s one of life’s greatest blessings to find a line of work that we’re deeply passionate about and that utilizes our greatest gifts. If this is not possible at the moment, then try to find enjoyment and meaning in your current work, or cultivate a hobby that involves doing something you love.

  既然我们成人生活的三分之一时间都在工作,那么做我们想做的事对我们的整体幸福感就有很大的影响。做自己最热爱的工作并把天赋发挥最大化,这是人生最大的幸福之一。如果现在不能做你想做的事情,那就试着在你现在的工作中寻找快乐和意义,或者培养一个你喜爱的兴趣。
