“我喜欢将生活简单化”——小编

 

Why?

 

One simple reason and one of the most important ones for me is that simplicity reduces the heaviness in life.

It makes it lighter and not so stressful or energy draining as it once might have been.

So today I would like to share 13 daily habits that make my life simpler, lighter and happier. I hope you’ll find something useful for your own life among these habits.

原因很简单,最重要的是简单地减少了生活中的沉重。

让他变得更轻而且不再像以前那样充满压力或使人精力枯竭。

所以今天我想分享13个日常习惯,让我的生活更简单、更轻松、更快乐。我希望你能在这些习惯中找到一些有用的东西。

Use a very simple workspace. My workspace is just a laptop and a larger screen on a desk made out of wood. I use a comfy chair and there is room for my glass of water beside the computer. That’s it. There are no distractions here. This makes it easier to write and to keep a clear mind.

使用一个非常简单的工作空间。我的工作空间只是一台笔记本电脑和一张用木头做的桌子的大屏幕。我用一把舒服的椅子,在电脑旁边放着一杯水。就是这样。这里没有让人分心的东西。这使得写作和保持头脑清晰更加容易。

Cook more food than you’ll eat. We usually make 4-10 servings of what we are about to eat. This cuts down on time that you spend on cooking and you’ll have to do less washing up in general. Plus, you’ll have lunch for the day after. And sometimes a couple of portions to put in the freezer. And that really comes in handy on those evenings when you don’t feel like cooking.

多做饭,少吃。我们通常会做4-10份我们将要吃的东西。这减少了你花在烹饪上的时间,你将不得不减少洗碗的次数。另外,你还会在第二天吃午饭。有时放入冰箱里的部分。当你不想做饭的时候,这真的很有用。

Write shorter emails. I tend to write emails containing only a few sentences, usually between one and five. In some cases I write more of course. But keeping this guideline in mind cuts down on the time and energy that is spent on processing emails.

邮件写得短些。我通常只写几句话,通常在一到五句之间。在某些情况下,我当然写得更多。但是,要记住这条原则,可以减少处理邮件的时间和精力。

Be 10 or 5 minutes early for meetings and appointments. This will help you to make your time of travel into a sort of break and a time of relaxation. Instead of it being another thing that ramps up the stress.

提前5到10分钟参加会议和约会。这将帮助你把旅行的时间变成一种休息和放松的时间。而不是另一种增加压力的东西。

Spend only 20% of your time on dwelling on a problem. And 80% of your time focusing on a solution. Instead of the other way around. It is not always easy to do but keeping this thought in mind makes it easier to not fall into the trap of feeling like a victim or going down a spiral of perceived powerlessness.

只花20%的时间去思考一个问题。80%的时间集中在解决方案上。而不是相反。要做到这一点并不总是那么容易,但是记住这个想法会让你更容易不落入感觉像一个受害者的陷阱,或者陷入一种无力感的漩涡中。

Stop trying to do things perfectly. Go for good enough instead and when you are there you are done. Get things all the way to done this way and then move on to the next thing. Setting this more human bar for yourself not only leads to more things actually being finished but also helps with?keeping your self-esteem on a healthy level. Perfectionism makes it pretty impossible to find or maintain high self-esteem.

不要尝试做完美事情。当你在那里的时候,你就已经完成了。用这种方式把事情做好,然后继续做下一件事。为自己设置更人性化的酒吧不仅能让你完成更多的事情,还能让你的自尊保持在一个健康的水平上。完美主义让你很难找到或保持高自尊。

Stop trying to please everyone. Because no matter what you do there will always be people who you don’t get along with. That you don’t have good chemistry with. Or that do not like you for some reason that may often be about them and something that you have no control over.

不要试图取悦所有人。因为无论你做什么,总会有你无法相处的人。你的化学反应不太好。或者因为某些原因而不喜欢你的原因可能是他们和你无法控制的事情。

Eat slower. Make your lunch time a time of relaxation rather than a time to just add to the stress of your day. One thing that works well to slow down when eating is to put down the fork between bites.

吃得慢一些。让你的午餐时间是一个放松的时间,而不是一个时间来增加你一天的压力。有一件事很有效,那就是在吃的时候放下叉子。

Enjoy the simple pleasures. A pear. Fresh and clean bed sheets. A hug and a kiss. Holding hands. A laugh with friends. The sun and blossoming nature after a long and cold winter.

享受简单的快乐。一个梨。干净的床单。一个拥抱和一个吻。手牵手。与朋友开怀大笑。经过漫长而寒冷的冬天,太阳和开花的自然。

Give each item a home. Then you’ll know where to put the item when you have used it and easily find it again when you need it. Plus, you’ll reduce the clutter in your workspace or at home.

给每个东西一个家。然后,当你使用它的时候,你就知道该把它放在哪里了,当你需要它的时候,你可以很容易地找到它。另外,你可以减少工作空间或家里的杂物。

Write everything down. Pretty much everyone’s memory is leaky. So help yourself. Write down what you need to do or shop for today. Write down your ideas before they fly away. Write down the one habit or area you are focusing on right now in your life and put that note where you can see it every day. Like on your bedside table or bathroom mirror.

把一切都写下来。几乎每个人的记忆都是漏的。所以帮助自己。写下你今天需要做什么或买什么。把你的想法写下来,然后再飞走。把你现在关注的一个习惯或领域写下来,把它放在你每天都能看到的地方。就像你床边的桌子或浴室的镜子。

Avoid making mountains out of molehills. When stressed about something ask yourself: will this matter 5 years from now? Or even 5 weeks from now?

不要小题大做。当你对某件事感到压力的时候,问问你自己:这件事会在5年后发生吗?还是5周以后?

Breathe. When you are lost in overwhelm, a problem or the past or future in your mind breathe with your belly for a minute or two and just focus on the air going in and out of your nostrils. This will calm your body down and bring your mind back into the present moment again.

深呼吸。当你不知所措时,一个问题或过去或未来在你的大脑中呼吸一到两分钟,只专注于空气进出你的鼻孔。这将使你的身体平静下来,让你的思绪回到现在的时刻。
