爱思英语编者按:你快乐吗? 9个问题帮你找到答案
If you want to know how close you are to happiness, here’s some self-assessment you can do. Be honest with yourself as you answer the following questions - otherwise, the exercise won’t be helpful.
如果想知道自己是否快乐,下面这些自我评估问题可以帮你找到答案。在回答问题时要忠实于内心答案,否则评估是无效的。
 
Do you feel safe in your everyday life? If you feel unsafe, that’s all you can focus on - you don’t have the time to be happy.
你每天是否有安全感?如果没有安全感,你就会专心攻克这个问题,也就没有时间享受快乐。
 
Do you feel you have enough of what you need to be happy? Having enough of what you need isn’t the same as having everything you want. Sure, you may be dying for a new car, but do you have a car that gets you from point A to point B? If so, you have what you need.
你是否因拥有所需的物品而感到快乐?拥有所需的物品并不等于拥有所有想要的东西。当然,如果有辆新车你会开心的不得了,但你现在是否有辆车可以把你从A地带往B地?如果有,你就拥有了所需的物品。
 
Do you often find a quiet place to enjoy a moment of self-reflection? Sanctuary is a good thing. Unfortunately, in today’s hectic, fast-paced world, most people have too little of it. A quiet moment here and there can make all the difference in how you feel throughout the day.
你是否经常找一个安静的地方享受独处,自我反省?独处是非常好的。可惜现代社会太浮躁,节奏太快,很少人会这样做。享受安静的时刻会改变你全天的感受。
 
Are you satisfied with your finances, relationships, and career? Being satisfied doesn’t necessarily mean that you have all the money in the world, a perfect marriage, or an outstanding career. It just means that things are all right for the moment.
你是否对自己的财务状况,人际关系和事业感到满意?这种满意不是说你拥有世界上所有的钱,完美的婚姻或高大上的职业。而是指目前一切都处于正常状态。

Are you optimistic about your life? From where you’re standing, does the future look bright? Do you envision more good times than bad in the months ahead? Are you hopeful about the future? If so, you can move forward with joyful anticipation.
你对生活是否有信心?从你现在所处位置来看,未来是否是光明的?对接下来的几个月的幻想是否是好事情多于坏事情?你对未来是否充满希望?如果是,你可以满怀期待地继续自己的生活。
 
Are you grateful for the way your life is unfolding? Being grateful can be as simple as waking up every morning and saying "thank you" for the challenges, promises, and opportunities this day offers you.
对于正在展开的生活你是否心怀感激?这其实可以非常简单,哪怕每天早晨醒来对生活所赋予你的挑战、承诺和机会说声"谢谢你"也可以。
 
Do you often experience peace of mind? Can you actually hear yourself think without the noisy outside world intruding? Can you feel the power of silence? A quiet mind and a quiet body go hand in hand.
你是否经常感到内心平静?你是否可以听到自己思索的声音而不受外界的干扰?你是否能感受到安静的力量?安静的内心和平和的身体是紧密联系的。
 
Would you rate your health and well-being as above average? You don’t have to be a perfect 10 - anything from 6 on up means you’re ahead of the game. If you’re comparing yourself to others, make sure it’s a fair comparison. A 60-year-old can’t rate his health as above average if his standard is the way he felt when he was 20.
你是否认为自己的身体状况高于大众平均值?答案不必是满满的10分,只要6分以上都说明你领先于他人。如果你拿自己与他人比较,请确保其公平性。一个60岁的老人的身体状况不可能高于平均值,如果他的标准自己20岁时的状态。
 
Do you often find yourself feeling content? Being content means you’re comfortable with where you are at this moment in life and you have no burning desire to make a change. Life is good and you want to savor it.
你是否经常感到满足?满足是指你对自己的现状感到非常舒服,没有急切地想改变现状的想法。生活很美好并且你想慢慢品位。
 
So are you happy? It depends on how many of these questions you answered with "yes."
所以你开心吗?那就看你这些问题的答案有几个是“是的”啦。
