双语:保持健康,赢得财富

双语:保持健康,赢得财富

许多人用他们的健康作代价来获得财富,然后再耗尽财富重获健康。你的健康就是你的生命,你的财富就是你劳动成果的象征。我想你不愿意损坏其中任何一个。下面告诉你如何一石二鸟:既保持健康又赢得财富。

双语:

Your health is your life, and your wealth represents the fruits of your labor.  I assume you don’t want to be wasteful with either of them.  Here’s how to save both at the same time:
你的健康就是你的生命,你的财富就是你劳动成果的象征。我想你不愿意损坏其中任何一个。下面告诉你如何一石二鸟:既保持健康又赢得财富。

So many people spend their health gaining wealth, and then have to spend their wealth to regain their health. - A.J. Reb Materi
许多人用他们的健康作代价来获得财富,然后再耗尽财富重获健康——A.J. Reb Materi

1、Reduce Your Consumption of Drugs – That includes alcohol, cigarettes, over the counter, prescription and otherwise.  Drugs are a huge financial drain, and in most cases, unhealthy for the human body.  A significant portion of the global population abuses the crap out of them on a daily basis, legally and illegally.
1、减少药物的消耗——包括酒、烟、柜台药、处方药和其他药物。药物消费是一项巨大的经济耗费,而且在多数情况下对人体健康有害。全球很大一部分人口每天都在合法或非法地滥用这些东西。

2、Learn to Cook and Prepare Healthy Food – People who eat every meal out tend to have lighter wallets and heavier rear ends.  With the exception of pricey, upscale dining establishments, you’ll find that most restaurants use lower-grade ingredients and employ sketchy sanitary practices that fall well below the standards you embrace in your own kitchen.  So when you eat out, you’re either spending more cash or eating low-grade product.  Regardless, you lose.  The ability to cook and prepare healthy meals is a vital skill everyone should know how to do.
2、学习烹调和制作健康的食物——人们在外面吃的每餐饭都会让你的钱包更轻,你的臀部更重。除了高昂的价格、奢侈的设施,你会发现多数饭店使用劣等的作料,并采用简略的卫生清洁惯例,而这些是远远在你自家厨房标准之下的。所以,当你到外面吃饭的时候,你不是花费了更多的金钱,就是食用了劣等的东西。不管怎样,你受损失了。烹调和制作健康的食物是一项重要的人人都应该知道如何去做的技术。

3、Brown Bag the Leftovers for Lunch – Always cook enough at dinnertime so you can enjoy lunchtime leftovers the following day.  Leftovers are faster, easier, cheaper and healthier than anything you’ll find at the local fast food eatery.
3、午餐时,把吃剩的饭菜当便当——晚餐的时候多做些饭菜,这样你就可以在第二天午餐时享用剩余的饭菜了。剩饭菜跟你在当地快餐店里买的任何东西相比都更快、更容易,也更实惠和健康。

4、Avoid Overpriced, Unproven Supplements – Most people assume that FDA approved nutritional supplements are proven products.  Wrong!  Do you really think the FDA has enough resources to precisely verify every new dietary supplement proposed to hit the market?  I assure you, they don’t and there is no feasible way they ever will.  Remember, the FDA concentrates its efforts on drugs, not supplements.  Under the active Dietary Supplement and Health Education Act, producers of dietary supplements do not have to verify that their product is effective, safe or at all healthy prior to placing it on store shelves.  Sometimes someone has to become dreadfully ill from a dietary supplement before it even becomes a “blip” on the FDA’s radar.
4、回避那些定价过高又未经证明的补品——多数人认为食品及药物管理局批准的营养补品就是经过验证的产品。错误!难道你真的认为食品及药物管理局有足够的资料来精确的核实每个准备打入市场的饮食补充剂新产品吗?我向你保证,他们没有,而且他们也没有可行的办法做到这一点。记住:食品及药物管理局把他们的精力集中到药物上,而不是礼品上。根据《膳食补充剂健康教育法》,在摆到商店的货架上之前没有必要证明他们的饮食补充剂产品是有效、安全和健康的。有时一些人因为食用一种补品而病的很严重,之后,这种产品才会成为食品及药物管理局关注的失误丑闻。

5、Drink Filtered Tap Water – I’ve said it before, people go to work and trade priceless hours of their lives for dollars and then waste the dollars buying something that’s already free.  A Brita water filter is an inexpensive investment that makes free tap water as healthy and pure as the bottled water for sale at the local supermarket.  Since a penny saved is a penny earned, you’ll be making money every time you take a sip.  Also, substituting beverages like soda for filtered tap water is another healthy way to save.
5、饮用过滤后的自来水——我先前就说过,人们辛苦工作,用生命中无价的时间换取金钱,然后滥用他们的金钱来购买早已是免费的产品。净水器就是一项实惠的投资,它可以把免费的自来水变成跟当地超级市场里销售的瓶装水一样健康和纯净的饮用水。因为节约一分钱就等于赚了一分钱,当你每次喝一口水的时候你就是在赚钱呢。另外,用诸如苏打水等替代饮料来代替过滤的自来水是另一种健康的节约方式。

6、Stop Driving Like a Maniac – The faster you accelerate your vehicle, the more gas you will burn.  People who are heavy on the pedal use up to 37% more gas during every mile of city driving.  At $4 a gallon, that’s a lot of wasted money.  Also, the faster you drive, the less time you have to react to hazardous road conditions.  Bottom line: Drive responsibly at or below the speed limit.
6、不要像个疯子一样开车——你的车子速度越快,就会燃烧更多的汽油。在市内每行驶一英里,那些使劲踩着油门开车的人会消耗多达37%的汽油。如果按每加仑4美元算的话,那也是很大的一笔浪费。另外,开的速度越快,你对危险路况的反应时间就会越少。建议底线:保证在限速或限速以下行驶。

7、Brew Your Own Coffee – Is coffee perfectly healthy for you?  It’s hard to say for sure.  There is a good deal of medical research to validate both sides of the argument (see here and here).  However, one point remains certain: millions of people across the globe drink coffee every single morning.  Many of them wasting significant amounts of money on fatty, sugar and cream packed coffee beverages from Starbucks-style coffeehouses.  So the real question is: How do you make the coffee drinking habit healthier and less expensive?  The answer is simple.  Brew your own coffee.  If you like, add a dash of low fat milk and a single packet of sugar.  It’s quick, fairly healthy and way cheaper than Starbucks.  We have a Cuisinart Two-to-Go Coffeemaker and absolutely love it.
7、自己煮咖啡——咖啡有益于你的健康吗?这很难确定。关于咖啡益处和害处的医学研究的证据有很多。(看这里和这里)。但有一点是可以确定的:在每天清晨,便全球有上百万人会饮用咖啡。他们中的很多人花费大量金钱去星巴克咖啡馆饮用多脂的、含糖的和含奶油的咖啡类饮料。那么关键的问题是:如何才能培养更健康、更经济的喝咖啡的习惯? 答案是简单的——自己煮咖啡。如果你喜欢,可以放入少许低脂牛奶或者一小包糖。这比星巴煮的咖啡更快、更健康,也更加实惠。我们有一种两部煮咖啡的方法,我们也确实喜欢它。

8、Wear Helmets and Protective Body Gear – How many motorcyclists, bicyclists, skateboarders, etc. do see foolishly blazing around without wearing any form of protective body gear?  It’s your life.  A quality bicycle helmet will cost you $40 and 2 seconds of your time to put it on before you ride.  If you don’t wear one and end up crashing and cracking your head open, it could cost you thousands of dollars in medical bills and take months, if not years, for your body to fully recover.
8、佩带头盔和护具——许多骑摩托车的人、骑自行车的人和滑板的人,等等,他们不佩带任何护具到处穿行。那是你自己的生命!一个优质的自行车盔花费40美元,骑车之前戴上头盔也就需要2秒钟的时间。如果你没有戴头盔,并且撞车把你的头部撞裂了,那将花去你上千美元的医疗费,如果不是几年时间,至少也要花几个月你的身体才能完全复原。

9、Stay In and Hang Out – Your home is your haven.  It’s the safest, most comfortable environment to relax and socialize in.  It also happens to be a far cheaper alternative to the local bars, pubs and clubs.  You can save money on gas and entertainment costs while avoiding a lungful of secondhand smoke.  So login to eBay, sell some stuff you don’t use, buy yourself a Wii and invite over a few of your favorite people.  Don’t forget to crank-up the tunes.  
9、在家里闲玩——你的家就是你的港湾。它是最安全、最舒适的放松和交际的环境。跟当地的酒吧、酒馆和俱乐部相比,家里是更经济的一种选择。你可以省下汽油钱和娱乐花费,还不用受二手烟的危害。登录易趣,把用不着的物件卖掉,买个游戏机,邀请几个你喜欢的人过来玩。不要忘了把音量高大些。

10、Buy Healthy, Generic Brand Food – When it comes to the bare essentials on your grocery list, generic brands can provide the same food quality at a significantly reduced cost.  U.S. food manufacturers are forced to follow a set of standards which basically guarantees the quality of the food they produce.  Many large-scale grocery chains purchase name brand products directly from the manufacturer and simply slap their own generic brand label on the packaging.  You should always compare the generic brand’s list of ingredients to a name brand product just to make sure everything matches up. 
10、买健康普通的食物——当谈到购物清单上的必需品时,普通的产品可以以极少的花费购得相同质量的食物。美国食品生产厂家要求遵循一系列标准,这就基本上保证了他们生产的食品的质量。很多大规模的杂货连锁店直接从生产厂家购买品牌食品,然后再简单地把普通食品的标签贴到包装袋上。你只需要对比普通食品和品牌食品的原料就能够把所有的都匹配起来。

11、Eat Fresh Produce that is In Season – Based on abundant crops and excessive supplies, produce that is in season is fresher, more nutritious and cheaper than produce that is out of season.  Take a quick look around the produce isle.  The fresh, seasonal produce will be piled high and priced low.  The fluctuations in price can be quite significant.  For instance, an ear of corn will cost about 10 cents in the summer and nearly a dollar in the wintertime.
11、食用应时的新鲜产品——因为农作物丰富和过量的供应,应时的产品比不当时令的产品更新鲜、营养更丰富,价格更便宜。快速查看一下周围大量产品。新鲜应时的产品堆积的很高,标价却很低廉。价格的起伏会很大。举例来说,一个玉米棒在夏季的时候售10美分左右,而在冬季的时候差不多售1美元。

12、Play Sports with Your Friends – Racquetball, tennis, kickball, basketball… Honestly, it doesn’t matter what you play, so long as it’s an active sport that you enjoy.  When you play sports with your friends you’re basically hitting 3 birds with 1 stone.  You’re getting healthy exercise and quality social time without spending a dime.
12、跟朋友一起锻炼——回力网球、网球、足球、篮球……确切地说,你玩什么并不重要,只要是你喜欢的运动。当你跟朋友们一起运动的时候,你简直就是一石三鸟——你得到了健康的锻炼;优质的社会交往;而且你不用花一分钱。

13、Walk a Mile Everyday – Most medical professionals agree that walking is the healthiest form of exercise.  Studies have shown that overweight twenty-somethings spend significantly more on medical bills over the course of their lives.  Adding a 1 mile walk into your daily routine is a quick way to get some exercise and lose a couple pounds without spending money on a gym membership.  My colleagues and I walk a mile everyday after lunch.  We walk, we talk and we come back to the office feeling refreshed.
13、每天步行一英里——大多数医疗专家都认为散步是最健康的运动方式。研究也已经表明二十几岁的超重的人在他们的日常生活中医疗上花费的要明显更多。把一英里的散步加入到你每日的日程里是得到一些锻炼和减轻几磅体重的一种快速便捷的方法,并且你还不用花钱购买健身会员。我的同事跟我一起每天午餐后步行一英里。我们散步、我们谈天,然后我们回到办公室,神清气爽!

14、Do Some Weekly Meal Planning – A little meal planning can reduce the cost of preparing a meal by preventing you from overspending on ingredients you don’t need.  It’s also much less stressful to prepare a meal without running around at the last second trying to figure out what ingredients you have so you know what you can cook.  This scenario is exactly why most people give up and waste their money at unhealthy fast food restaurants.
14、做一些膳食计划——1份小的膳食计划可以防止你花费过多的金钱购买你不需要的作料,进而减少准备膳食的花费。这样当你准备膳食的时候也不必在最后的时刻跑来跑去查看你现有的作料来确定你可以做什么菜,这样你也就感觉到更少的压力了。这种情况确实也是人们不自己做饭而浪费金钱到饭店吃不健康的快餐的原因。

15、Buy in Bulk, Cook in Bulk – Join a discount shopping club like Costco.  Even though there’s a membership fee, discount clubs can be extremely cost-effective if you purchase the majority of your groceries in bulk.  Buying and cooking food in bulk is a great way to save money and maintain a healthy diet.  If you cook a week’s worth of healthy food in bulk, you’ll probably end up eating healthier all week long than you would have otherwise.  Angel and I usually cook in bulk for the entire week on Sunday evenings.  Having our food already prepared when we return home from work is a huge time saver and stress reducer on busy week nights.
15、批量购买、整体烹调——参加一个像美国科思科连锁企业打折购物俱乐部。即使需要缴纳会员费,如果你整体大批量购买杂货的话,折扣俱乐部还是相当划算的。批量购买和烹调不省钱和保持健康饮食的好方法。如果你批发烹调一周的健康食物,你一周之内都会比其他情况下享用更健康的食物。安吉尔和我通常在周日晚上批量烹调一整周的食物。因为我们已经做好了要用的食物,当我们工作日晚上下班回来的时候,就省去了大量的时间,也大大减少了我们的压力。

16、Eat Slow to Eat Less – By eating slow you give yourself enough time to properly chew your food, which is much healthier for your digestive system.  It also gives you enough time (usually 20 minutes is needed) to realize you’re full.  Many people eat so fast that they continue stuffing their faces long after their stomachs are at capacity.  The slower you eat, the less you will eat.  The less you eat, the less money you will spend on food.
16、细嚼慢咽,吃的更少——细嚼慢咽就可以给自己充足的时间来咀嚼食物,这有益于消化系统的健康。同时也给你足够的时间(通常20分钟的时间是需要的)来感觉自己已经饱了。许多人吃得太快,这样虽然他们的胃已经达到了最大容量,他们还不断地往嘴里填东西。你吃得越慢,你就会吃得越少。你吃的越少,你在食物上的花费就越少。

17、Reduce Consumption of Sugar-Loaded Deserts – Consuming a sugary snack on occasion is fine for you, but not when you habitually fix one onto the end of every single meal you eat.  Most sugar-loaded deserts have little nutritional value and simply empty your wallet and make your jeans 2 sizes too small.
17、减少含糖甜品的消费——偶尔吃些甜品小吃是好的,但当你习惯每餐后都吃一种甜食的时候就不好了。多数含糖的甜品营养价值都很低,而且花空你的钱包,你的牛仔裤加大2码还是太小。

18、Get Annual Medical Check-Ups – If you think that scheduling medical check-ups when you’re healthy is a waste of your time and money, think again.  The exact opposite is actually true.  Annual medical check-ups are the best form of severe illness prevention, and prevention is greatest cure of all.  Regular medical check-ups can detect potential health issues before they get out of control, allowing you to treat the condition before it becomes an expensive, time consuming drain on your life.
18、每年做下医检——当你健康的时候,如果你认为这种每年医检的计划是浪费时间和金钱的话,那就再慎重考虑一下吧。相反的情况实际上也是真实的。每年进行医检是防止严重疾病最好的方式,而预防是对所有疾病最好的治疗。定期医检能够检测潜在的健康问题,这样你就有控制能力,并且你可以花费更小在短期内将他们治愈。

19、Wash Your Hands Before Eating – Washing your hands takes two seconds and kills thousands of germs that could potentially lead to illness.  When you catch a cold, what do you do?  You buy expensive over the counter medications.  Do you want to stay healthier and wealthier?  Wash your hands before you eat, EVERY SINGLE TIME you eat!  If you can’t wash your hands, use a quality hand sanitizer.
19、饭前洗手——花两秒钟的时间洗手就可以杀死可以导致疾病的数千种细菌。当你感冒了,你要怎么做?你到柜台购买昂贵的药物。你想保持健康和拥有财富吗?饭前洗手吧,每次你吃饭的时候都要这样做!如果你不能洗手,用优质的消毒液清洗下。

20、Brush and Floss Your Teeth Every Night – I know so many people who brush their teeth every morning to kill bad breath, but get lazy and forget to brush and floss their teeth before bedtime.  The bacterium that causes tooth decay can multiply 30 times during the course of the night while you sleep.  If you only want to brush and floss your teeth once a day, do it before bedtime.  It is the most effective time for maintaining a healthy set of teeth.  Remember, dentistry is painfully expensive, so be proactive and take care of your teeth.
20、每晚刷牙并用牙线洁牙——我知道许多人每天清晨刷牙来清新口气,但晚上睡觉前却懒得刷牙和用牙线洁牙。当你晚上睡觉的时候,导致你牙齿腐烂的细菌会增加30倍之多。如果你一天只想刷一次牙,那就在睡前好了。这是保持健康牙齿最有效的时间。记住:看牙医是痛心的昂贵呢,所以要主动照顾好你的牙齿。
