Breathing Room' Reduces Stress

能减轻压力的Breathing Room 可不是用来呼吸的房间哦

资配易And now, Words and Their Stories, from VOA Learning English.

你正在收听的是美国之音慢速英语的《词汇掌故》节目时间。

资配易If you are feeling nervous or stressed, a simple thing can help. Take a deep breath.

资配易如果你感到紧张或有压力,一件简单的事情可以帮助你——深呼吸。

资配易Deep breathing can calm your nerves and lower the chemicals in your body that can lead to stress. If one of your friends is stressed, you can calmly tell them, “Try to take a deep breath.”

深呼吸可以平复你的紧张,降低体内导致压力的化学物质。如果你的朋友有压力,你可以平静地告诉他们,“试着深呼吸。”

We sometimes describe these as deep cleansing breaths. A long, deep breath feels as if it is cleaning out your body.

我们有时将其描述为“深吸几口新鲜空气”。深吸一口气感觉就像在清理你的身体。

资配易American English has some expressions that use breath or breathing in them. One expression is breathing room. This may sound like a room used especially for breathing. But it is not.

美式英语中有一些使用“breath”或“breathing”的表达。一个表达是“breathing room”。这听起来像是一个专门用来呼吸的房间。但事实并非如此。

“Breathing room” gives you time or space to do something, finish something or get relief from something.

“Breathing room”让你有时间或空间去做某事、完成某事或从某事中得到解脱。

资配易It is what the online dictionary Merriam-Webster defines as a “buffer of time, space or money that allows for freedom of movement or relief from a given source of pressure or stress.”

在线词典韦氏大词典将其定义为“时间、空间或金钱方面的缓冲,让人能自由行动或从给定的压力或压力来源中解脱出来”。

资配易So, time, space and money can all give us breathing room.

资配易所以,时间、空间和金钱都能让我们有“breathing room”。

Time

时间方面

资配易First, here is an example related to time.

资配易首先,下面是一个和时间有关的例子。

资配易If you have a big work project or school project that is due in one month, you should start immediately if you can. This will give you some breathing room. If something goes wrong, you will have time to deal with it. Or if something fun comes up, like a party, you will have enough breathing room to be able to enjoy yourself.

如果你有一个重要的工作项目或学习项目要在一个月内完成,你应该尽己所能立即开始。这会给你一些缓和余地。如果出了什么差错,你就会有时间去处理。或者如果有好玩的事,比如一个聚会,你就会有足够的缓和余地来尽情享受 。

资配易If you wait until the very last minute to start your project, you have no breathing room. And that can cause you to feel very stressed.

如果你等到最后一刻才开始你的项目,你就没有缓和余地了。那会让你感到很有压力。

Money

金钱方面

资配易Now, let’s talk about how money can give you breathing room.

现在,让我们来谈谈金钱如何让你有“breathing room”。

When a country experiences a recession or depression, people who live paycheck-to-paycheck may find themselves in a tough situation. Living paycheck-to-paycheck means you have little money in savings. You need your next paycheck to pay your bills.

当一个国家经历经济衰退或萧条时,那些月光族可能会发现自己处境艰难。依赖月薪过活是指你几乎没有存款。你需要用下一个月的薪水来支付你的账单。

However, if you have some money put aside, you might feel less stressed. For example, having enough money in the bank to pay six months of your rent, would give you some breathing room if the economy took a turn for the worse.

但是,假如你存了一些钱,你可能会感觉压力小一些。比如,你在银行有足够的钱来支付六个月的房租,如果经济恶化,它会让你有一些缓和的余地。

Space

空间方面

Sometimes breathing room refers to actual space around you.

有时,“breathing room”指的是你周围的实际空间。

资配易For example, let’s say you witness a car crash. The driver struggles to get out of the car as people gather around to see if he is okay. You step in to make sure there is enough space between the injured driver and the crowd of people. “Step back! Step back! Give him some breathing room!” you shout.

举个例子,比方说你目睹了一场车祸。司机挣扎着从车里出来,人们围在一起看他是否还好。你插手以确保受伤的司机和人群之间有足够的空间。“退后!退后!给他一些呼吸的空间!“你喊道。

资配易Here is another example. Let’s say you must stay at home because of bad weather, or because of an illness, or because a new virus has turned into a pandemic and is forcing the world inside on a stay-at-home order!

再举一个例子。比如说由于糟糕的天气或疾病,你必须待在家里,或者因为一种新型病毒成了一种流行病,迫使全世界的人们不得不待在家里。

资配易You may find that after a few days -- or even weeks -- you need more breathing room. In other words, you feel like you need more space -- away from those you live with.

资配易几天甚至几周后,你可能会发现自己需要更多的呼吸空间。换句话说,你觉得你需要更多的空间——远离那些和你一起生活的人。

资配易So, you can think of it this way: Breathing room reduces stress. It gives you the time, money or space to get something done or to just feel relaxed.

资配易所以,你可以这样想:“Breathing room”可以减轻压力。它让你有时间、金钱或空间去完成某件事或让你感到放松。

And that brings us to the end of this Words and Their Stories.
