Stress busters 解压小帖士

As a college freshman at Valparaiso University, facing all the uncertainties of future academic and work life, I had the opportunity to meet with the president emeritus and chancellor. Audiences were rare. Sitting among a small group of nervous peers, we anxiously awaited the arrival of a man revered throughout the school, let alone the country and abroad, for his excellence in achievement and esteemed wisdom.

那时,我是瓦尔帕莱索大学的一年级新生,将面对将来的学习、工作和生活的所有不确定因素。而我有幸见到了那位荣誉退休校长。观众都是难得一见的人物。我们这一小群紧张的学生焦急地等待着他的到来。全校师生都崇敬他,就更不用说那些来自国内外仰慕他那卓越的成就和令人敬重的学识的人。

 

Dr. O. P. Kretzman arrived in a wheelchair, aging, with failing sight. You could have heard a pin drop. All too soon, the attention turned to us as he asked for questions from the group. Silence. I knew inside what an opportunity this was, so despite my fear, I got up the courage to break the ice and ask my question.

卡勒兹曼博士年事已高,视力不好。他坐轮椅进来时,四周安静得能听见针落地的声音。时间总是过得太快。当他请大家提问题时,注意力便集中到我们身上,大家都沉默了。就在那会儿,我明白这是个机会,尽管胆怯,我还是鼓起勇气打破沉默,提出了自己的问题。

 

"What advice would you give new freshman as we face all the choices and uncertainties ahead of us?" His reply was simple and strong, "Take one bite out of the apple at a time." No more, no less. A perfect stress buster for the moment and for all the moments of my life.

“对于我们大一新生将要面对的抉择和不确定因素,您能给些建议么?”他的回答简短而有力:“苹果要一口一口地吃。”就这一句,在那时以及之后的生活里成了我对抗压力最好的方法。

 

Now that I've been in the working world for 20 years, I've added a few more stressbusters to maintain a healthy life. Help yourself!
