对自己也要好一点儿

我有时会很讶异,我在花了32年的功夫,一次婚姻,生养了2个孩子之后才懂得怎样对自己好一点儿...
I’m amazed sometimes that it took me 32 years, a marriage, and bearing two children before I learned how to take better care of myself.
准时上床睡觉。喝水而不是碳酸饮料。适当地保持润湿。好好吃东西。服用维他命。
To go to bed on time.To drink water instead of soda.To moisturize properly.To eat right.To take my vitamins.
我最主要的责任之一是照顾他人。(照顾)那些不知道洗衣机怎么用的人。那些不能自己洗澡或吃饭的人。然后,我在照顾自己上做得不太好。
One of my primary responsibilities is to take care of other people. People who don’t know how the washing machine works. People who can’t even bathe or feed themselves. And yet I wasn’t doing a very good job of taking care of myself.
最终我学会了先去睡觉而在早上才完成一项任务,而不是熬夜到很晚,还自我感觉自己富于成效。
I finally learned to go to bed and finish a task in the morning instead of staying up late and fooling myself into thinking I was being productive.
前几天在杂货店,我差点就决定买一瓶苏打水了,因为我一直表现得不错很久没喝。为什么我们试着奖赏给自己那些对自身不好并且努力试图避免的东西呢?我恢复了理智,然后及时地将我的购物车转了个弯。
The other day at the grocery store I almost decided to buy a bottle of soda, because I had been so good about not drinking it. Why do we try to reward ourselves with the very things that aren’t good for us and that we have been trying to avoid? I came to my senses and turned my cart around just in time.
我常常还做得不好。有时会忘记吃午饭。如果它不在我的行事历上,那我就不会停下来吃午餐。幸运的是,我的丈夫对此有了了解,而当我感觉我该休息时,他就知道他得给我做个小点心。
I still don’t always get it right. I forget to eat lunch sometimes. If it’s not on my to-do list, I don’t stop to eat lunch. Fortunately my husband knows this about me, and if I’m feeling like I’m ready to have a breakdown he knows he needs to make me a snack.
曾经我以为对自己好一点儿全是有关于外表。看起来不错。我总是涂脚趾甲。我也花了很多时间来侍弄我的头发。但我感觉并不特别好。
I used to think taking care of myself was all about the outside of me. Looking good. My toes were always polished. I spent a lot of time thinking about my hair. But I didn’t feel very good.
如今,在我这个生命阶段,照顾自己是生存必须。在许多个日子里,即使是我在早上6点前起床,我也都没时间安稳地开始一天。在那早上的凌晨时光里,无论我有没有完全醒过来,总有个小人在清晰地表明自己的需求。
Now, in this season of life, taking care of myself is essential to survival. Most days I have no time to myself to start the morning quietly, even on the days when I wake up before six a.m. There’s always a little person making his needs clearly known in those wee hours of the morning, whether or not I have fully woken up.
对自己好一点儿能改变“熬过一天”或者“整天感觉糟糕”这种状态。
Taking care of myself makes the difference between making it through the day or feeling miserable the whole time.
当空闲时间十分宝贵,那么我该用它来重振精神吗,或者我被折磨到不能辨认一项活动是否仅仅只为“混时间”?
When free time is so precious, do I use it on something that will revive my spirits, or am I too beat to recognize when an activity is just “filler?”
更有甚者,你是否还记得什么活动能重振自己的精神?
Do you even remember which activities revive your spirits?
如今(因为它极有可能改变),我最喜欢的消磨时光的活动是缝纫和阅读。
Right now (because it might change) my favorite free-time activities are sewing and reading books. Even if it’s just for half an hour or less.
即使只有半个小时或者更少的时间。
So in my favorite keep/drop style, here is how I’m spending my free time.
保持:缝纫小东西。放弃:临到头来做打扫,这样我就可以在一个干净舒服的视野里感觉“放松”。
Keep: sewing small thingsDrop: doing last-minute cleaning so I can “relax” with a nice clean view.
保持:读书放弃:看电影。
Keep: reading booksDrop: watching movies
你是如何对自己好点儿的呢?哪个步骤难呢?
What are the ways that you take care of yourself? What is hard?
