人生短暂,匆匆几十年时间而已。可是每个人想做的事情去那么多,想实现的愿望也那么多,于是我们常常因为漫无目的的前进而失去了人生真正的乐趣。如何拥有一个快乐的人生?你要做的,只是更好地利用你的时间,去做最值得做的事情。 

今晚推荐的短片《拥有快乐人生的秘诀》是一则在Youtube上爆红的短片,上传三天内点击量破亿。这是一堂看似平常的大学哲学课,伴随着上课铃声,学生进入教室,等待老师授课。教授这堂课讲的是聪明的利用时间的重要性。

为了说明这一点,教授拿出一个玻璃瓶子,他现实往里放了几十个高尔夫球填满瓶子,之后询问学生罐子是否满了,在得到肯定的回复后又拿出小石子往瓶子里倾倒,在学生们再次说瓶子已满的情况下,教授又拿出土往里填充,就在学生们以为不可能再往里放东西的时候,教授却又拿出了啤酒,成功的再次往瓶子里添加了东西。

玻璃瓶子就像是人生的缩影,高尔夫球象征着人生中最重要的事情,而沙土则代表人生中琐碎的杂事,如果你先用沙土填充瓶子,就没有空间再去放高尔夫球了。人生也是如此,你把时间都花在了那些琐碎的事情上,就没办法去做那些真正重要的事情了。

想获得快乐又充实的人生?先思考下什么才是对你最重要的事情吧~



课堂师生对话稿双语版

Good afternoon everyone. Good afternoon. 

大家午安。午安。

We all have this one life to live. A fleeting shadow amongst all that exists in this vast universe. We have the ability to accomplish anything, truly anything, if we use our time wisely. 

人的一生都要活一次。虽然对广大的宇宙来说,我们不过是一个小小的过客。但我们有能力去完成任何事。真的,任何事情,如果我们善用时间的话。

Is this jar full? Yes. Is it full now? Yes. How about now, is the jar full now? Yes.

这个罐子满了吗?满了。现在满了吗?满了。现在呢,罐子满了吗?是的。

Now I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls. . . are the important things, your family, your friends, your health and your passions. 

现在我要你们把这个罐子想象成自己的人生。高尔夫球代表很重要的事情,包括你的家庭,你的健康,你的热情。

The pebbles are the other important things, your car, your job, your home. The sand is everything else, the small stuff. 

小石头代表其他重要的事情,像你的车子,工作,房屋。沙子就是其他东西,一些小事。

Now if you put the sand in the jar first you won't have room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same is true in life. 

那么如果把沙子先倒进罐子里,你就没有空间放小石头或高尔夫球了。人生也是一样的道理。

If you spend all your energy and your time on the small stuff, you won't have time for all the really important things that matter to you. 

如果你把所有的时间和精力都耗在小事身上,你就不会有时间去在意真正重要的事情。

Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Take care of the golf balls first. The really important things. Set your priorities. Because everything else is just sand.

专注那些能让你真正感到高兴的事。先把高尔夫球打好。也就是真正重要的事情。先把优先事项列好。因为其他事情都只是'沙子'而已。

Professor, what does the beer represent? I'm glad you asked. It goes to show that no matter how full your life may seem to be, there is always room for a couple of beers with a friend. 

教授,啤酒代表什么呢?很高兴你问这个问题。它代表了不管你的生活有多紧凑,仍然有时间能和朋友一起喝一杯。

20 Secrets to Living a Happier Life

There’s an unfortunate reason why happiness is often elusive -- our brains simply aren’t wired that way. Instead, our brains have evolved to survive, to protect ourselves, to keep us safe. Sure, we have moments of elation and periods of contentment and bliss. But many of us are plagued with persistent negative emotions -- we are just plain stuck in the “blahs.”

How do we find more joy in our life? Like anything else, it takes practice to cultivate ongoing happiness. In a sense, we have to reset our baseline. It won't happen overnight, but here are the top 20 things you can do every day to discover the secrets of being happier.

1. Focus on the positive.

To find long-term happiness, you need to retrain your brain from a negative mindset to a positive mindset. Try these things: Spend one to two minutes looking for positives in your life. Do this three times a day for 45 days, and your brain will start doing it automatically.

Choose a positive mantra for the day -- something you will repeat to yourself, such as “Today is beautiful” or “I feel grateful for all I have.” And when things go south, take a moment to try and see it from a positive light. Never underestimate the importance of recognizing the silver linings in life.

2. Celebrate little victories.

Life is full of ups and downs, but in between we have a lot of little victories that go unnoticed. Take a moment to celebrate these small wins.

Did you check off all the things on your to-do list that you’ve been procrastinating on? Yay! Did you finally clear out a thousand emails that have been filling up your inbox? Woohoo! Take pleasure in these little achievements. They add up!

3. Find your work–life balance.

Work takes up a lot of our day, but it shouldn’t be the only thing we do. It’s important to pursue activities and interests beyond our job. Do you have a hobby? Are you spending time with friends and loved ones? Are you getting exercise? Creating balance in your life will reduce stress and give you other outlets to express yourself and have fun.

4. Practice mindfulness.

Mindfulness mediation works by bringing your awareness and attention to the present moment. It’s about being nonjudgmental and accepting how you are feeling. Practicing mindfulness means being present, aware and curious. Accepting what we are going through decreases stress and helps us see situations for what they are. Through mindfulness, we can find peace and affirmation in ourselves.

5. Be creative.

You may think of artists as being moody and depressed, but studies show that engaging in creative activities on a regular basis actually makes you happier. Those who spend time using their imagination and being creative have more enthusiasm and are more likely to have feelings of long-term happiness and well-being. Such creative activities can include writing, painting, drawing and musical performance.

6. Accept imperfection.

Many of us strive for perfection -- we desire to push ourselves to be our best. But in order to be truly happy, you must embrace the imperfection that is part of life. Perfection is impossible, and holding ourselves and others to these standards is futile. We will always end up feeling let down. Accept that life is imperfect and recognize that there is beauty and grace in that imperfection.

7. Do what you love.

It’s pretty hard to maintain happiness if you hate your job. Don’t waste the best years of your life in a joyless job, even if it’s paying the bills. What are you interested in? What are you truly passionate about? Focus on building a career in an area that motivates you and will provide you with a high level of satisfaction, and your happiness factor will go up exponentially.

8. Spend wisely.

It’s tempting to believe that the more money you have, the happier you’ll be. But the reality is, it’s how you spend your money that helps you feel happier. The key is to do it wisely. Spending money on experiences -- travel, dining, concerts and so on -- can make us happier because we are sharing those experiences with others. Happiness connected to material possessions fades, but experiences help us define our purpose and passions in life.

9. Live in the moment.

Our thoughts and feelings often revolve around the past or the future. Reality is what you are experiencing in this very moment; what you are going through right now. Sometimes we want to escape that reality. But when we stay in the present, we are fully engaged in our lives. Endeavor to live in the moment, and you’ll begin to have a deeper appreciation for your life.

10. Cultivate gratitude.

Find ways to cultivate gratitude on a daily basis. Giving thanks and being grateful for all you have will make you happier and more content. Gratitude is a thankful appreciation for what you have received in life. Those gifts may be tangible or intangible. When you spend time each day acknowledging all that is good in life, you’ll see there is more good than you realize, and you’ll find that sadness, anxiety and depression are diminished.

11. Give back.

Be generous with your time and your money. Give to others in need. Give to those you love and care for. Those who give back have a sense of selflessness and humanitarianism. Those who are generous in spending money on others tend to have good health, perhaps because giving has a feel-good effect that lowers blood pressure and stress.

12. Surprise yourself.

It’s hard to feel happy if you are bored or feeling blah about life. Part of feeling happy is feeling stimulated, interested and a little surprised by life. So surprise yourself by setting goals outside your comfort zone. Put yourself in new or unexpected situations. Set goals for yourself and then work to achieve them. And remember to enjoy the ride!

13. Listen to and engage with music.

Listening to music lifts our spirits. It makes us feel better, in part because listening to music causes our brains to release dopamine, a neurochemical connected to pleasure and reward. Those who engage with music through dance or through attending concerts report high levels of happiness and a sense of well-being.

14. You do you.

One of the best things you can do to boost your happiness is to just be yourself. That means not being dependent on the approval of others, but accepting yourself for who you are. Spend some time getting to know yourself. What defines you? What do you believe in? Who are you, underneath it all? Search for ways to be comfortable in your own skin.

15. Build meaningful relationships.

Happiness, love, friendship and community go hand in hand. As humans, we have a fundamental need to interact and connect with others. We naturally seek our tribe -- the people who will support us, understand us and be there for us through life’s roller-coaster ride. Without meaningful relationships, we are lonely and isolated. We’re happier when we pursue happiness with others.

16. Nothing compares to you.

Stop comparing yourself to everyone around you. Most importantly, stop comparing your things to all the things everyone else has. Social media has a way of making us feel like everyone else has it better than us. How often does scrolling through your newsfeed make you feel negative emotions? Allowing envy and resentment to take root robs us of appreciating what we have.

17. Stop worrying.

Constantly worrying about everything creates toxic anxiety, where your mind is steeped in negative, spiraling thoughts. Worries plague your mind and make you afraid and apprehensive about things you often have no control over. Sometimes we believe that if we worry enough, we can keep bad things from happening. But the truth is, you cannot experience joy or even contentment when you’re consumed by worry.

18. Hang out with happy people.

Ever hang out with a gloomy person and leave feeling bummed? That’s because moods can be contagious. It turns out that feelings can be transferred from one person to another, and the more we share experiences with one another, the more our emotions and behaviors become synchronized. One secret to long-term happiness is surrounding yourselfwith others who are also happy.

19. Spend time in nature.

Some researchers believe that today’s ultra-wired generation is actually suffering from a nature-deficit disorder. Studies have shown that the more time we spend in nature, and the more we relate to the natural world around us, the greater our sense of happiness. Our connection to nature also plays a role in maintaining positive mental health.

20. Reminisce over happy memories.

Why do we love all things retro? Perhaps because nostalgia makes us happy. Nostalgic feelings, or reminiscing about our past, can help us reconnect with feelings of love and a sense of wonder and fulfillment. Our past shapes us and defines our identity. When we remember good times and happy memories, we can increase our self-confidence and feel closer to those around us.
