苦哈哈6天工作日之后小伙伴们马上就要迎来难得的周末和国庆假期了喽~大家要怎么过呢?今天这篇文中有几条建议小编觉得很在理,倒也不是想用“成功人士”的理念来绑架大家,这只不过是个小小的提示,告诉你原来空出来的这8天除了睡到自然醒,吃到胃抽筋,玩到嗨翻天或者宅到没朋友,我们还可以过得有点新意。

 

这是存在于你习惯之外的另一种可能。

The first step to controlling your weekends or holiday is making conscious choices.

第一步是为自己的周末做个理智的选择

It's so easy to plop down on the couch on a Friday night or Saturday morning and watch TV, but falling into these routines will suck away the few free hours you have. Instead of doing something by default, choose to decide how your time is spent.

周五晚上或周六早上靠着沙发看电视最爽啦,但如果这样过周末可真是浪费了你仅有的闲暇时光呢。与其就这样默认地过周末,不如好好想想怎么利用好周末时间。

In her book, "What The Most Successful People Do On The Weekend," time management expert Laura Vanderkam writes, "In a world of constant connectivity, even loafing time must be consciously chosen, because time will be filled with something whether it’s consciously chosen or not — and not choosing means that the something that fills our hours will be less fulfilling than the something our remembering selves will likely wish we’d elected to do."

时间管理专家劳拉·凡德卡姆在著作《最成功的人周末做些什么》一书中写道:“在这个被即时通讯充斥的世界,即使是空闲时间也需要谨慎选择,因为一些事总会莫名占用时间——如果不理智选择,就意味着你的时间将会虚度,而非花在实现心中目标之上。”

Make appointments for yourself, even if it's only to read a book.

跟自己预约,哪怕只是读一本书而已

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee says you need to have a plan for the weekend or holiday, setting specific hours or minutes aside for activities you want to do. Then you have to commit.

前阿肯色州州长麦克·赫卡比说你需要为周末定个计划,空出几个小时或几分钟来做你想做的事情。然后就去履行这个计划吧。

Huckabee advises: "If you know you want to read a book, then get the book out and have it set aside and make plans to read it. Say it's going to be at 1. When that starts, get on it. Don't wait until that afternoon, then think — could I read? Or listen to some music? Or take a walk? Then you'll sit about wasting an hour of what little time you have figuring out what to do with the rest of it."

赫卡比建议道:“如果你想读一本书,那么就把书带着,放在身边,做个计划来阅读这本书吧。比如你准备一点开始看,一到一点,就不要再拖啦。不要等到下午再去想——我是读书呢还是听音乐呢?要不去散个步?然后你就会浪费一个小时的时间去纠结接下来到底应该干什么。”

You have to be disciplined and commit to the decisions you make.

一定要自律,遵守自己做出的决定。

Make a list of the things you dream about doing, and you'll find the ones you can do every day.

给自己想做的事列个清单,你会发现每天都能实现一个

When the weekend rolls around there may be so many things that you want to do that you freeze up and end up doing almost none of them. That's why it's effective to have a really good list.

周末来袭,也许你想做的事太多反而不知该如何下手最后却一事无成。所以列个清单十分有效。

Vanderkam suggests people create something called "A List of 100 Dreams," which prompts you to brainstorm anything you might want to do in life. Although some things, like going to see the pyramids in Egypt, may not be doable right now, by the end of the list you'll have come up with everyday activities, like getting together with friends for a picnic in the park.

凡德卡姆建议大家去列一个类似”100个最想做的事“这样的清单,首先你要绞尽脑汁去想到底想做些什么。有些事,比如去埃及看金字塔,不能马上实现,但越到最后你就越会列出每天都能做到的事情,比如和朋友一起去公园野炊。

Weekend mornings can be the best time to do things for yourself.

周末早晨可是为自己生活的最佳时机

Weekend mornings are very easily wasted in laying about. Instead, set them aside for personal pursuits.

周末的早晨最容易被懒觉吞噬。实际上,好好利用这段时间来搞点人生追求吧。

Vanderkam writes, "If you're training for a marathon, it's less disruptive for your family if you get up early to do your four-hour run than if you try to do it in the middle of the day. To get up early, you'll probably have to avoid staying up late the night before, but this is a good idea in general."

凡德卡姆写道:如果你一直为马拉松备战,那么不如早起开始你的四小时长跑,以免中午跑步耽误家人的行程安排。早点起床,你就会避免头一天晚上熬夜,看,这是多好的办法。

Set aside specific hours for down time, and turn off your phone.

给自己几个小时来放空,关掉手机

It's important to schedule down time, because otherwise you may never unplug. Like siestas in Spain, you don't necessarily need to sleep and may choose to watch a movie or read. The time is meant to relax.

安排自己的空间非常重要,否则你永远都无法真正放下电子产品。就好比西班牙的午休,你不需要真的睡觉,也可以看一部电影或读一本书。主要的目的在于放松。

If you live to be 80, you'll have 4,160 weekends in total, so don't let any go to waste.

如果你活到80岁,就会有4160个周末,所以不要再浪费啦!

Four thousand weekends isn't all that much. It's very easy to feel overwhelmed and simply do nothing (or meaningless things). But by falling into that trap, Vanderkam points out you may miss the best parts of your own life.

四千个周末其实并不多。很容易就会在无所事事中度过(或做的都是无意义的事情)。凡德卡姆指出,如果陷入这样的循环,你会错过生活最精彩的部分。

Too often people don't think about what they'd like to do and wind up living constrained versions of life, doing little tasks on a to-do list.

大多数时候人们不会去想自己喜欢做什么,只会过着局限的生活,根据待办清单去完成任务。

Vanderkam says, "What the most successful people know about weekends is that life cannot happen only in the future. It cannot wait for some day when we are less tired or less busy." So start with this weekend and do something.

凡德卡姆说:“大部分的成功人士对于周末的认识是:生活不只存在于未来。我们不能等到哪一天不那么累不那么忙。” 所以从这周开始做点不一样的事情吧。
