Want to know the secret to happiness? Wait for it.
 想要知道快乐的秘诀吗?那就是等待。
No, really. Wait for it. As long as the “it” is an experience, according to a series of new studies published in the journal Psychological Science.
是的,这是真的。等待快乐的到来根据心理日报发表的一系列研究表明,只要“它”是一次经历,你就能等到快乐。
We already know that experiences make you way happier than things do. Studies have shown that spending money on experiences as opposed to goods is more meaningful, makes you less likely to compare yourself to others, and encourages more social engagement. (Vacations trump solo shopping sprees, in other words.) You get those same pleasurable effects long before you even make the purchase and now, researchers have found, waiting to buy those experiences is a lot more fun, too.
 我们已经知道经历远比事物本身更能让你快乐。研究表明把钱花在经历上要比在货物上更有意义,能减少你的攀比之心,并且能鼓励你多参与社交。(换句话说,像单独的假期打折购物狂欢。)你甚至能在购买之前得到与之相同的愉悦感受,现在研究者们已经发现等待购买这些经历也要比经历本身更有乐趣。
One study asked college students to think about a purchase they were going to make in their near future, whether material or experiential, and report how they felt while waiting. People were more excited when waiting to buy an experience—and more impatient when waiting to buy something material.
 一项研究让大学生们去思考最近他们将要进行的一次购物,不管是物质的或是精神上的都可以,并且把他们等待时的感受写出来。研究表明,人们在等待时要比购买时更加激动,而等待购买物质方面的东西时要比购买精神上的东西时更不耐烦。
