  This Quick Technique Can Help You Feel Less Stressed

  这个小技巧可以帮助你快速减轻压力

  Everyone has bad days at work. You hit an unexpected complication with a project you've been working on for weeks. A colleague snaps at you in a meeting. You forget to put something on your calendar and leave a key client waiting.

  每个人在工作上都会有不顺心的时候。你忙活了好几周的项目碰到了始料未及的复杂情况。同事在开会的时候对你出言不逊。你忘了把事情记在日程表上,结果让重要客户干等着。

  Whatever the root of your workplace problem, one effect it has is to make you feel more alone. In those bad moments, you feel as though your colleagues are upset and you can only rely on yourself.

  不管你工作中的麻烦是什么原因导致的,它的一个影响就是会让你感到格外的孤单。在这种糟糕的时刻,你觉得同事都挺让人心烦的,只能依靠自己。

  In those moments, a little gratitude can help. Sure it might seem hokey, but there's a reason gratitude is always showing up on tea bags and in self-help books.

  在这种时刻,些微的感激之心就会对你有所帮助。这听起来或许有些做作,但茶包和励志书上总是让人抱以感激之情是有着原因的。

  According to research, practicing gratitude can help make you happier. The next time you're feeling overwhelmed by a problem at work, take a minute and think of someone in your life that you're grateful for. Write a sentence or two on a notepad about why you feel appreciative.

  研究发现,常怀感激之心将会让你更快乐。下次当你在工作中感到陷入了麻烦的泥沼时,花上一分钟想想在生活中让你心怀感激的那个人。在笔记本上写一两句话,说说为什么会心怀感激。

  Why will that make you feel better?

  为什么这会让你感到好受点呢?

  Gratitude is often an emotion you feel when someone else has gone out of their way to do something helpful for you that they didn't have to do. That person has done something that is altruistic, and have given of themselves in order to make your life a little—or perhaps a lot—better.

  感激这种情绪通常产生于某人腾出手来帮助你,并且他实际上并没有必要这么做。这个人出于无私的目的而这么做,并且牺牲了自己的利益来或多或少的帮助你。

  All of us have people in our lives who fit that bill. It might be a relative who took care of you when you were little, a mentor who help you out in a tough situation, or a colleague who put you up for a great opportunity.

  我们在生活中都曾遇见过这样的人。这个人可能是小时候关照你的亲戚,也可能是帮你解决麻烦的良师,或者是为你带来难得机遇的同事。

  Picking one of those folks out and reminding yourself of why you're grateful to them has two benefits.

  选出一个这样的人,提醒自己为什么对他们心怀感激,这样做有两个好处。

  For one, it gets you thinking about something positive, which can lift your mood. It also reminds you of the deep social connections you have so that you don't feel quite as isolated anymore.

  首先,这会让你去想些积极的东西,可以让你的情绪不那么低落。其次,这会让你想到你所拥有的很深的社会关系,这样的话你就不会感到那么孤单了。
