We come from a dark abyss,
we end in a dark abyss, and we call the luminous interval life.
我们来自漆黑的深渊,我们归于漆黑的深渊,中间光明的间隔,被我们唤作一生。
I've already switched my phone into airplane mode, but threw it off the fifth floor, broken!
我都已经把手机调成了飞行模式,从五楼扔下去还是碎了!

生命中不值得我们去做的30件事
1. Stop spending time with the wrong people.
不要花时间和错误的人相处。    

Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you.  If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you.  You shouldn’t have to fight for a spot.  Never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth.  And remember, it’s not the people that stand by your side when you’re at your best, but the ones who stand beside you when you’re at your worst that are your true friends.
人生苦短,没有必要和那些令你不快乐的人纠缠。如果那个人需要你,你不需要刻意去做什么,他/她自然会留出你的位置。绝对不要和那些低看了你价值的人在一起。记住,一帆风顺时守在自己身边并不珍贵,当你深陷困境却依然和你并肩在一起的才是真正的朋友。

2. Stop running from your problems.
不要逃避问题。

Face them head on.  No, it won’t be easy.  There is no person in the world capable of flawlessly handling every punch thrown at them.  We aren’t supposed to be able to instantly solve problems.  That’s not how we’re made.  In fact, we’re made to get upset, sad, hurt, stumble and fall.  Because that’s the whole purpose of living – to face problems, learn, adapt, and solve them over the course of time.  This is what ultimately molds us into the person we become.
直面并解决问题。没错,这很不容易。世上没有人能够轻松的渡过每一个难关。也没有人就能不停地轻松地战胜困难。事实上,我们本就该迷茫,伤心,难过,出差错,因为那是生活的意义所在——去面对问题,去学习,去适应,随着时间的发展学会解决问题,塑造了我们成为什么样的人。

3. Stop lying to yourself.
不要欺骗自己。

You can lie to anyone else in the world, but you can’t lie to yourself.  Our lives improve only when we take chances, and the first and most difficult chance we can take is to be honest with ourselves.
你可以对世界上任何一个人撒谎,唯独不能跟自己撒谎。只有我们不断接受挑战,生活才能前进,然第一个也是最难的挑战就是诚实的面对自己。

4. Stop putting your own needs on the back burner.
不要把自己的需求排在最后。

The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.  Yes, help others; but help yourself too.  If there was ever a moment to follow your passion and do something that matters to you, that moment is now.
世界上最悲惨的事情是,太爱某一个人而丢失了自己,忘记了自己也是不一样的存在。是的,要帮助别人,但是更要爱护自己。如果你从没有跟从自己的内心,从没有为自己做些重要的事情,那现在就开始。

5. Stop trying to be someone you’re not.
不要强迫自己成为理想的别人。

One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else.  Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you.  Don’t change so people will like you.  Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.
世上最大的挑战就是将自己改变成为另一个人。总有人更加漂亮,总有人更聪明,总有人更年轻,但他们都不是你。不要为了让别人更喜欢自己而去强迫自己改变。做自己,对的人会爱真正的你。

6. Stop trying to hold onto the past.
不要总是攥着过去。

You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last one.
如果你一直重读昨天,那很难翻开人生新的篇章。

7. Stop being scared to make a mistake.
不要害怕犯错。

Doing something and getting it wrong is at least ten times more productive than doing nothing.  Every success has a trail of failures behind it, and every failure is leading towards success.  You end up regretting the things you did NOT do far more than the things you did.
不断尝试,哪怕是错了,也比什么都不做好十几倍。每份成功背后都有无数的失败,每一次失败都是通往成功的尝试。你会为没有做过的事情后悔而不是去尝试了的。

8. Stop berating yourself for old mistakes.
不要为过去的错误而折磨自己。

We may love the wrong person and cry about the wrong things, but no matter how things go wrong, one thing is for sure, mistakes help us find the person and things that are right for us.  We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past.  But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future.  Every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come.
我们也许会错爱过某个人,为某件错事而哭泣,但是不论多大的错事,可以确定的是,错误的人或事会帮我们找到适合自己的人或事。我们都会犯错,都会挣扎,甚至后悔过去做的事情。但是如今,你不是曾经犯错误的你,更不是曾经不停挣扎着的你,你是全新的自己,那个有能力塑造新的现在和未来的你。曾经发生的每一件事都是在为将要到来的时刻做准备。

9. Stop trying to buy happiness.
不要试图“购买”幸福。

Many of the things we desire are expensive.  But the truth is, the things that really satisfy us are totally free – love, laughter and working on our passions.
我们想要的很多东西都非常昂贵。但事实是,真正适合我们的事情往往都是免费的--真爱,微笑,激情的工作。

10. Stop exclusively looking to others for happiness.
不要幻想通过其他人来获得幸福。

If you’re not happy with who you are on the inside, you won’t be happy in a long-term relationship with anyone else either.  You have to create stability in your own life first before you can share it with someone else.
如果你对内在的自己不满意,那你很难在一段和别人的长期关系中获得幸福。你要先建立自己的幸福才能和别人分享这份幸福。

11. Stop being idle.
不要闲着。

Don't think too much or you’ll create a problem that wasn't even there in the first place. Evaluate situations and take decisive action.  You cannot change what you refuse to confront. Making progress involves risk. Period! You can't make it to second base with your foot on first.
别想太多,不然你会制造出很多不必要的麻烦。评估一下情况然后就做决定。你无法改变你不能面对的事。前进总是意味着承担风险。不迈出第一步,你就无法走出第二步,生活就是这样的。

12. Stop thinking you're not ready.
不要总是想自己还未做好准备。

Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises.  Because most great opportunities in life force us to grow beyond our comfort zones, which means we won’t feel totally comfortable at first.
当机会来了,没有人会觉的自己做好了100%的准备。因为生活中的重大机会总是会迫使我们走出自己的舒适区,这就意味着刚开始的时候我们肯定会感觉不舒服。

13. Stop getting involved in relationships for the wrong reasons.
不要因为某个错误的原因开始一段感情。

Relationships must be chosen wisely.  It's better to be alone than to be in bad company.  There's no need to rush.  If something is meant to be, it will happen – in the right time, with the right person, and for the best reason. Fall in love when you’re ready, not when you're lonely.
必须要明智的选择感情。有个错误的伴侣还不如单身呢。没有必要着急。如果缘分到了,一切都会到来的——在合适的时间跟合适的人。投入一段爱情是因为时机到了而不是感到孤单。

14. Stop rejecting new relationships just because old ones didn’t work.
不要因为之前恋情的失败而拒绝新的感情。
In life you'll realize that there is a purpose for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will use you and some will teach you.  But most importantly, some will bring out the best in you.
在生命的长河中你会慢慢意识到,遇到所有的人都是命中注定的。有人会考验你,有人会利用你,有人引导你。但是最重要的是,这些会引领你找到真爱。
15. Stop trying to compete against everyone else.
不要总是和别人竞争。
Don't worry about what others are doing better than you. Concentrate on beating your own records every day. Success is a battle between You and Yourself only.
不要担心其他人做的比你好。每天要专心于超越自己,成功只是一场自己跟自己的战役。
16. Stop being jealous of others.
不要嫉妒他人。
Jealousy is the art of counting someone else’s blessings instead of your own.  Ask yourself this:  “What's something I have that everyone wants?”
嫉妒其实就是在细数别人的幸福却忽视了自己的幸福。要常问问自己:“我拥有哪些别人羡慕不已的东西呢?”
17. Stop complaining and feeling sorry for yourself.
停止抱怨和内疚。
Life's curveballs are thrown for a reason – to shift your path in a direction that is meant for you. You may not see or understand everything the moment it happens, and it may be tough.  But reflect back on those negative curveballs thrown at you in the past.  You’ll often see that eventually they led you to a better place, person, state of mind, or situation.  So smile!  Let everyone know that today you are a lot stronger than you were yesterday, and you will be.
生命中的挫折都是有其存在的意义,它让你重新步入人生的正轨。或许你还无法理解这些事情发生的原因,或许它们对你来说是痛苦难熬的。但是,当你回头审视这些挫折时,你会发现它们最后会让你变得更出色。所以,你要笑着面对人生中的困境。你要让别人都看到今天的你要比昨天的你更强,而且明天的你会变得更强。
18.Stop holding grudges.
放开心中的恨。
Don't live your life with hate in your heart.  You will end up hurting yourself more than the people you hate.  Forgiveness is not saying, “What you did to me is okay.”  It is saying, “I’m not going to let what you did to me ruin my happiness forever.”  Forgiveness is the answer… let go, find peace, liberate yourself!  And remember, forgiveness is not just for other people, it’s for you too.  If you must, forgive yourself, move on and try to do better next time.
如果人心中有恨,最终给自己带来的伤害要远远多出别人所带给自己的伤害。原谅不是说“我不介意你曾经伤害过我”,而是要说,“我不会让你的所作所为毁掉我今后的幸福生活。”宽恕是问题的答案——放手过去、找到内心的平静、最后解放自己!而且,你要记住宽恕并不只是对别人,同时也是对你自己的。如有必要,宽恕自己,然后继续人生的脚步并在下一回做得更好。
19. Stop letting others bring you down to their level.
不要让别人拉低了自己的水准。
Refuse to lower your standards to accommodate those who refuse to raise theirs.
不要为了迎合那些不愿激励别人的人而降低自己对目标的期望。
20. Stop wasting time explaining yourself to others.
不要浪费时间一再地向别人解释自己。
Your friends don’t need it and your enemies won’t believe it anyway.  Just do what you know in your heart is right.
你的朋友不需要你作任何解释也能理解你,而你的敌人永远都不会相信你说的话。所有,你的内心告诉你什么事是正确的,那就去做吧。
21. Stop doing the same things over and over without taking a break.
不要总是不停地做同一件事,而忘记停下来思考一下。
The time to take a deep breath is when you don’t have time for it.  If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting. Sometimes you need to distance yourself to see things clearly.
当你觉得自己忙不过来的时候,停下来做一下深呼吸。假如你继续做你一直再做的事,你只会不停地得到你早已得到的东西。有的时候,你需停下来,好让自己看得更清楚。
22. Stop overlooking the beauty of small moments.
不要低估了细微时刻的美妙之处。
Enjoy the little things, because one day you may look back and discover they were the big things. The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you.
欣赏那些微不足道的事,因为或许某天当你回望人生时,你会发现它们是无比重要的事。你人生中最美妙的组成部分便是由那些零零碎碎的片段串联而成的,一如你对某人投去的一抹微笑。
23. Stop trying to make things perfect.
不要事事追求完美。
The real world doesn't reward perfectionists, it rewards people who get things done.
现实世界不偏爱完美主义者,它只回报那些最终能够完成任务的人。
24. Stop following the path of least resistance.
不要总是走阻力最小的人生道路。
Life is not easy, especially when you plan on achieving something worthwhile.  Don’t take the easy way out.  Do something extraordinary.
人生不易,尤其是当你有一个伟大的梦想时候,你将来会遭遇到的困难会更大、更多。不要去做没有挑战性的事,去做些一鸣惊人的事吧。
25. Stop acting like everything is fine if it isn't.
不要假装一切都很顺利。
It's okay to fall apart for a little while.  You don’t always have to pretend to be strong, and there is no need to constantly prove that everything is going well.  You shouldn’t be concerned with what other people are thinking either – cry if you need to – it’s healthy to shed your tears.  The sooner you do, the sooner you will be able to smile again.
挫败感或灰心丧气是很正常的一件事。你不必假装自己很坚强,而且你根本就没有必要向别人证明一切都如我所愿。你也不用太在意别人是怎么看待你。想哭就哭吧,流流泪也有益于健康。越快释放压抑的情绪,快乐就会越快降临。
26. Stop blaming others for your troubles.
不要将自己的麻烦归咎给别人。
The extent to which you can achieve your dreams depends on the extent to which you take responsibility for your life.  When you blame others for what you’re going through, you deny responsibility – you give others power over that part of your life.
你是否能实现自己的梦想在很大程度上就取决于你是否对自己负责。当你把自己所面对困难都归咎于别人时,你也就是在逃避责任——不是别人而是你自己才能改变自己的人生。
27. Stop trying to be everything to everyone.
不要试图成为一个人的全部。
Doing so is impossible, and trying will only burn you out. But making one person smile CAN change the world. Maybe not the whole world, but their world.  So narrow your focus.
这想法只会让你更筋疲力尽。但是,给你身边的人带去一点快乐确实能改变这个世界,即便无法让整个世界变得更美好,但你确实让那个人的世界变得更美好了。所以,把你的注意力都聚焦在你力所能及的地方。
28. Stop worrying so much.
不要忧虑重重。
Worry will not strip tomorrow of its burdens, it will strip today of its joy.  One way to check if something is worth mulling over is to ask yourself this question: “Will this matter in one year’s time?  Three years?  Five years?”  If not, then it’s not worth worrying about.
忧虑不会带走明天的负担,但它确能带走今天的快乐。而有些事情却是值得你去深思的,判断方法就是问自己:“这件事在1年后、3年后、5年后是否还有重要意义吗?”如果不是的话,你没有什么好忧虑的。
29.Stop focusing on what you don’t want to happen.
不要把注意力都放在不想要发生的事情上。
Focus on what you do want to happen.  Positive thinking is at the forefront of every great success story.  If you awake every morning with the thought that something wonderful will happen in your life today, and you pay close attention, you’ll often find that you’re right.
你应该把注意力放在你想要发生的事情上。积极思考总是出现在每一则成功故事的序幕里。如过你每天醒来时想的是美好的事情就会在今天发生的话,你就会发现事实就是如此。
30. Stop being ungrateful.
不要忘了感激你所拥有的一切。
No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life.  Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs.  Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.
不论你人生际遇如何,每一天都要心怀感激醒来。在世界某处某些人还在为自己的命运无望地抗争着。所以,不要去想自己错过了什么,想想自己拥有哪些其他人没有的。
人的一生,总会有许多十字路口,向左,还是向右,迷茫的我们无从判断。这30件不值得我们去做的事,让自己在人生选择时知道该选择什么,放弃什么,不要再迷茫。

增强宝宝免疫力的食物
Foods You Should Serve Your Kids to Improve Their Immunity

Blueberries
蓝莓

In addition to being a great source of antioxidants, blueberries activate special immune cells called myeloid dendritic cells that protect the body against infection. Researchers have also shown that eating blueberries can improve the immune benefits of exercise, which kids should get plenty of playing outside in the summer.
除了是抗氧化剂的绝佳来源之外,蓝莓还能激活被称之为骨髓树突状细胞的特殊免疫细胞,保护身体免受感染。研究员表示,吃蓝莓还能提高锻炼的免疫益处(夏天来了,应多让小孩子在户外玩耍)。

Fresh blueberries are a delicious snack, but you can get creative by making a kid-friendly smoothie with fresh or frozen blueberries blended with plain yogurt.
新鲜蓝莓是道美味零食,但也可以用新鲜蓝莓榨汁或在原味酸奶上撒冷冻蓝莓,宝宝会很喜欢哦!

Broccoli Sprouts
西兰花芽

Regular broccoli is an immunity booster, but it's not very kid-friendly. Try broccoli sprouts instead. These three-day old tendrils are baby plants that have a mild, nutty taste that most children won’t mind. And when it comes to immune benefits, which comes from a natural chemical called sulforaphane, sprouts pack a whopping punch. Broccoli sprouts contain as much as 100 times more sulforaphane than full-grown broccoli.
西兰花本身就可以增强免疫力,但大多数小孩儿却不喜欢吃。试着让宝宝吃西兰花芽吧。只需三天,西兰花上就可形成一种坚果味儿的幼苗,大多数宝宝都不介意这种味道。就免疫益处而言,西兰花芽富含萝卜硫素这一天然化学物。西兰花芽的萝卜硫素含量是西兰花的100倍。

Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Stanford and the University Children’s Hospital Basel in Switzerland showed that drinking a shake made with broccoli sprouts can greatly enhance the body’s immune response to a virus compared to a placebo shake.
北卡罗来纳大学教堂山分校、斯坦福大学位于瑞士的巴塞尔儿童医院的研究员表示,与安慰剂奶昔相比,喝西兰花芽奶昔可大大增强儿童对病毒的免疫力。


Mushrooms
蘑菇

Mushrooms are a great source of immune-stimulating beta-glucan. A study from University of Western Sydney in Australia showed eating white button mushrooms could improve the number of infection-fighting antibodies in the saliva. The mushrooms activated the gut, which stimulated the immune system to produce the antibodies.
蘑菇是免疫刺激剂β-葡聚糖的重要来源。澳大利亚西悉尼大学的一项研究表明,吃白蘑菇可以增加唾液中抗感染抗体的数量。蘑菇会刺激肠道,进而刺激免疫系统产生抗体。

Think mushrooms are a hard sell to your kids? Saute them in a pan with some olive oil, and then mix them finely chopped into an omelet as it's cooking. Or make an old-fashioned mushroom barley soup.
宝宝不喜欢吃蘑菇?在锅中倒入橄榄油,煎炒蘑菇,然后将煎好的蘑菇切碎放入正在烹饪的鸡蛋卷中。再或者,做一份老式的蘑菇大麦汤吧!

Kiwifruit
猕猴桃
In addition to its brilliant color and sweet taste, kiwifruit can improve immunity by supporting our healthy gut bacteria, or what's also called as our microbiome. These bacteria actually help control our body’s immune response. Researchers from the National University of Singapore found that eating just two kiwifruits a day could increase one beneficial bacteria called Lactobacillus by as much as 35 percent in only 24 hours
猕猴桃色泽鲜艳、多汁味美,可以通过维持健康的肠道细菌或肠道微生物菌群增强免疫力。这些细菌有助于控制身体的免疫反应。新加坡国立大学的研究员发现:每天吃2颗猕猴桃可以在24小时内将体内一种叫做乳杆菌的有益细菌数量增加35%。

巧克力橘片,营养又美味
Chocolate and orange often arrive together at a holiday party in the form of chocolate-dipped, candied orange peels. Although I am enamored with the flavor duo, I am almost always left wishing the treat were more about the citrus and less about the sugar, as the rind is typically boiled until sticky-sweet in a concentrated sugar syrup.
节日聚会少不了巧克力橘片组合--蘸着巧克力酱的蜜饯陈皮。虽然我十分享受这一双重口味,但同时我也希望巧克力橘片的柑橘味更重、糖味更少。因为蜜饯陈皮通常是在浓缩糖浆中煮至粘稠状所得。
The accompanying recipe is my wish come true. It captures the pure essence of the chocolate-orange pairing with enough sugar to temper the citrus rind's bitterness without drowning out its flavor. Cutting a whole orange or two into very thin wheels using a mandoline and baking the slices at a low temperature - dehydrating them, really - turns them into crisp rounds of concentrated orange flavor. The sprinkle of confectioners' sugar that dissolves into the fruit as it cooks offsets the intensity of the peel without making it markedly sweet.
随附的这份食谱让我的希冀成真。这份食谱掌握到了巧克力橘片的精髓--糖分足以调和橘片的苦味,但却不会遮盖其原本的味道。用mandoline切片机将一个或两个橙子切成超薄的橘片,而后低温烘焙--使其脱水--变成圆形的浓缩薄脆橘片。烹煮的过程中撒上精制细砂糖使其溶于橘片,但糖分的含量不足以遮盖橘片本身的味道(不会变得齁甜)。
The orange crisps are then dipped in melted chocolate and then chilled until the coating has set. They make a lovely holiday gift layered in a box or jar and wrapped with a ribbon - if you can resist keeping them all to yourself.
然后将橘片浸入融化的巧克力中,冷却至包裹层凝固。将做好的巧克力橘片放入礼盒或罐子中用丝带包好,一份精美的节日礼物就呈现在眼前啦--如果你能经得住诱惑,不独吞的话。
Ingredients
所需材料
2 medium navel oranges, well scrubbed
2个中等大小洗干净的脐橙
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
2勺精制细砂糖
5 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
5盎司切碎的半甜巧克力
Steps
制作步骤
Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven; preheat to 200 degrees.
将烤架放置在烤箱的上下三分之一处并预热至200度。
Use a mandoline to cut the oranges into 24 very thin slices. Discard any pits (sometimes found even in navel oranges), then arrange the orange slices on the baking sheets in a single layer. Sprinkle them with the sugar. Bake (upper and lower racks) for about 2 hours, until the oranges are dried and crisp, rotating the baking sheets from top to bottom and front to back after 1 hour. Cool completely.
用mandoline切片机将橙子切成24块薄片。扔掉有坑的切片(有的脐橙会有),然后将薄片一片片地单放在烤盘上。撒上糖。烘焙上下层烤架约2小时,直至橘片完全干燥、变脆。一小时后,按照由上至下、由前至后的顺序旋转烤盘至完全冷却。
Place the chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH in 30-second intervals, stirring after each time until the chocolate is just melted and smooth. Dip the orange slices in chocolate to coat them halfway, returning them to the wax paper-lined baking sheets once they are dipped. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
将巧克力放入小型微波炉中。高温微波30秒后搅拌,重复此步骤直至巧克力完全融化、变得丝滑。将橘片的半边蘸上巧克力,而后放入蜡纸衬里的烤盘中。最后,将其放入冰箱冷藏30分钟。
