Happy Vacation-愉快假期

Many of us invest valuable time, energy, and money in planning our vacations. Vacations help us perform better at work, improve our sleep quality and cushion us against depression.

我们中的许多人在计划度假时投入了宝贵的时间、精力和金钱。假期可以帮助我们在工作中表现更好,改善我们的睡眠质量,缓解我们的抑郁情绪。

Yet, despite these benefits, many of us return home with a feeling that our last vacation was OK – but not great. In order to change this, some mistakes should be avoided.

但除去这些好处,许多人度假回家的时候认为这次假期差强人意。为了改变这种 情况,我们要避免一些错误。

A classic one for vacation planners is attempting to maximize value for money by planning trips that have too many components. Hopping from one place to the next hardly gives an opportunity to experience what psychologists call mindfulness – time to take in our new surroundings, time to be present and absorb our travel experiences.

本段重点:

  1. take in 领会;领悟;观看;欣赏;

翻译:

典型的假期计划是想要金钱价值最大化,所以安排行程的时候会涵盖太多景点。 从一个地方到下一个景点走马观花,人们很难有机会体验心理学家所说的“专注-体验”–也就是说接纳新环境,需要时间呈现和吸收我们的旅行体验。

Another mistake is that we worry too much about strategic issues such as how to find a good flight deal, or which destinations to add or subtract from our journey. These issues may seem important, but our psychological state of mind is far more important.

本段重点:

  1. far more 许多;多得多的;更多的

翻译:

另外一个错误是太担心一些攻略问题,比如怎样找到特价机票,该添加哪个目的 地,或者该去掉哪个目的地。这些问题可能很重要,但是我们的心理状态更重要。

Actually, vacation happiness is based on the following top rules.

First, choose your travel companions wisely, because nothing contributes more significantly to a trip than the right companions.

事实上,休假的快乐是基于几个首要法则。

首先,明智地选择你的旅伴,因为正 确的旅伴带来的贡献太大了。

Second, don’t spend your vacation time in a place where everything is too expensive so as to maintain a positive mood.

第二,不要把你的假期时间都花在一个所有物价都很高的地方,保持积极心态很 重要。

Third, shop wisely, for meaningful experiences provide more long-term happiness than physical possessions.

第三,理智消费,因为有意义的体验会带来比物质上的占有更长期的快乐。
