  上班族的压力

  What a vivid picture! Just as the picture depicts, there are so many things or desires that the man has to bear or to seek. And it is like him that almost every one of us feels exhausted. Every day we jump out of bed with the earsplitting ring of the alarmclock, swallow a quick breakfast and then rush to catch the bus. When arriving at the workplace, we have to work every minute to its full value until we drag home and throw ourselves deep into the sofa. The fast pace of modem life do bring us great pressure.

  The first stress-maker is competition. Nowadays, many people, the strongly careerminded ones in particular, are involved in a fierce competition for money, ranks, and fame. In the rat race, they try every means to stay on the top, and the fear to lose the game inevitably wrecks their peace of mind. The second, a reason closely related to the first one, is unhappy interpersonal relationships. Some people are so stupid at people skills that they always feel ill at ease when working with others. As a result, they can’t make themselves part of a group, and the loneliness greatly distress them.

  How can we adapt ourselves to the stress then? Above all, we should develop a positive attitude towards competition. That is, competition is not the ultimate goal of life, but a driving force that motivates us to fulfill our dreams and to realize our personal values. On the other hand, it is demanding for us to keep people aware of the importance of developing a schedule which includes enough time for rest and other important values. (277 words)

  这是一幅多么生动的漫画!如图所示,一位男子身负如此多的事务与愿望。几乎我们每个人都像他一样感到疲惫。每天我们闹钟一响就起床,迅速地吞下早餐后就去赶公交车。到了单位以后,我们还要争分夺秒地工作,直到我们拖着疲惫的身躯回家,瘫倒在沙发上不想动弹。城市生活的快节奏给我们带来了巨大的压力。

  压力首先来自于竞争。当前许多人陷入对金钱、地位与名声的残酷竞争中,尤其是那些拥有强烈事业心的上班族。在这种残酷的竞争中,他们使出浑身解数力求成功,由于害怕在竞争中失败而无法保持平和的心态。第二个原因与前一个有关,即复杂的人际关系导致的压力。一些人不善于为人处事,在与他人共事时常常感到困扰与不安。因此,他们因不能成为团体中的一员而产生强烈的孤独感。

  那么,我们如何适应压力呢?总的来说,我们应该培养积极的竞争态度,也就是说,竞争并非生命的终极目标,而只是实现我们梦想与个人价值的动力;另一方面,也要求人们认识到合理安排休息时间与追求其他价值要保持平衡的重要性。
