Dear students, As we approach the end of semester, I understand that this period could be quite challenging in managing academic demands and different aspects of life. And it’s too easy to lose sight of the most important person in your life – yourself. Being a former karate elite athlete, engaging in physical activity is […]

快樂的期限 最近在戲院觀賞了由校友黃綺琳導演執導的電影『填詞L』。其中女主角對追求夢想的一股傻徑與熱情,憧憬與成功只差一步的期望,以及真的就差一點與成功擦身而過的失落,都令我回味無窮。同學們有沒有想過當夢夢想達成時會怎麼樣呢?我想,大部分同學的答案都是我將會很快樂,反之則會很失落痛苦。那到底這份感覺能維持多久呢?根據瑞士行為經濟學研究員Reto Odermatt最近在TEDx講座中的分享,原來我們很多人都高估了可以維持快樂的時間。例如,我們現在估計達成目標之後快樂可維持兩年,但真正成功後所獲得的快樂其實只維持了半年。快樂其實比我們預期的更加短暫。可幸的事,傷心失意其實也比我們想像的來得短暫。人們克服困難,走出低谷的時間比他們預期的要短得多。這項研究結果對我們有什麼啟示呢?Odermatt博士建議我們達成目標的時候應要感恩並盡情享受,因為快樂會隨著時間流逝。但當我們痛苦失樂時亦不用太過沮喪,因為時間亦會淡化這些情緒。希望正在經歷快樂或失落的你,都能從這小智慧中得到一點點能量。 期末考試臨近了,祝願各位同學都能獲得自己想要的成績,之後在暑假盡興一番。 #過三爆四 #求過即過 #耗光一世氣力才放棄 The expiry date of happiness Recently, I watched a movie called ‘The Lyrist Wannabe’ directed by our alumna, Norris Wong. The main character’s foolish and passionate pursuit of her dreams, her anticipation of success just a step away, and the disappointment of coming so close yet missing it,

Dear students, 「原子習慣」與身心健康 身心靈健康不是說有就有,每個人都可以由少少習慣開始。坊間有很多心靈健康的自我檢查、也有不少精神健康的資料及資源,但是我們從何入手呢?有這麼多建議,那一些才對自己有用呢?以下嘗試透過「原子習慣」的理念幫助大家為自己度身訂造,適合自己身心靈健康的習慣。為了讓大家明白,我們嘗試以減少使用電話作為例子: 1. 定立最微小的目標:身心靈健康目標不一定要非常偉大,可以由最微小的目標開始,例如:每天減少使用手機10分鐘,讓自己可以安靜下來不受騷擾。 2. 天天進行微小習慣:建立身心健康的習慣最好越簡單、越容易以增加成功,例如:每天睡覺前或起床後10分鐘同手機保持距離。 3. 微小目標近在咫尺:習慣建立的成功有賴於天天的提醒,例如:如果你眼前有提示卡或者打開電話時有提示你要適可而止,那麼成功機會就會大增,因為看不見的目標就會容易忘記。 4. 自我獎勵微小目標:如果你要建立的目標,暫時沒有即時給你的樂趣及回報。你可以為自己每天做到目標而獎勵自己,例如:放下手機的時間聽首歌,放下手機的時間去散步,放下手機的時間看少少書。如果每日放下15分鐘手機做你喜歡的事情,你一年就會有90小時賺取回來。身心靈健康的習慣建立就好像銀行儲蓄一樣,慢慢積少成多。 5. 尋找志同道合的人:有否想過大家一齊project的同學可以暫時放下手機?當然,手機也是學習工具,但係當大家稍為放下專心傾談的時候,或者我們更有創意,不會被太多外來的資訊影響。 如果我告訴你,這樣的小習慣好重要,你相信嗎?最近,有研究顯示,我們每日看手機超過4小時足以影響睡眠,精神狀態及身體健康。所以一個小習慣,可以有好大裨益。希望大家可以透過以上例子,為自己度身訂造一個身心靈健康計劃,同學如果有興趣可以參考「原始習慣」一書,進一步了解習慣的建立。 “Atomic Habits” and Mental Health Achieving mental and physical well-being doesn’t happen overnight. It starts with the small habits that we incorporate into our daily lives. While there are numerous self-checks and resources available for mental and spiritual health, it
