The holiday season poses a psychological conundrum,Its defining sentiment,of course,is joy——yet the effort to be joyous seems to make many of us miserable.It's hard to be happy in overcrowded  airport lounges or while you're trying to stay civil for days on end with relatives who stretch your patience.

pose:vt.造成,形成:摆姿势:装模作样;提出...讨论

          vi.摆姿势;佯装;矫揉造作

          n.姿势,姿态;装模作样

假期形成了一个心理谜题。它典型的情绪状态当然就是欢乐——为了充满欢乐而做出的努力我们中的大多数人看起来很痛苦。在拥挤的机场休息室或当你试着连续数天保持礼貌直到你的亲戚打断了你的耐心,这很难令人高兴。

So to cope with the holidays,magazines and others are advising us to "think positive"_the same advice that Norman Vincent Peale,author of The Power of Positive Thinking,was dispensing six decades ago.Variations of Peale's positive philosophy run deep in American culture,not just in how we handle holidays and other social situations but in business,politics and beyond,Yet studies suggest that affirmations designed to lift the user's mood through repetition and visualizing future success often achieve the opposite of their intended effect.

所以为了解决假期,杂志和其他媒体建议我们积极思考,《积极思考的力量》的作者诺曼文森特皮尔在六十年前正执行这一相同的意见。皮尔积极的哲学变更深深的根植于美国文化,这一变更不仅仅在于我们怎样应对假期和其他社会形势还在于商业,政治以及更广的范围。研究表明主张通过背诵和观察将来的成功来改善使用者的心情通常会起到相反的作用。

Fortunately,both ancient philosophy and contemporary psychology point to an alternative::::a counterintuitive approach that might be termed "the negative path  to happiness." One pioneer of the "negative path"was psychotherapist Albert Ellis.He rediscovered a key insight of the Stoic philosophers of ancient Greece and Rome:that sometimes the best way to address an uncertain future is to focus not on the best case scenario but on the worst.

幸运的是,古哲学和同时期心理学都指出一个选择:一个反直觉的方法也许被叫做通往快乐的消极小道。消极之路的一个提出者心理学家艾伯特埃利斯,他发现一个古希腊和古罗马的斯多葛学哲学者的关键的洞察力:有时去一个不确定的将来的最好方法就是不要关注未来最好的情况而是最坏的情况。
