每日英語跟讀 Ep.K193: One good reason to eat a raisin
When people find out that they have cancer, they can easily start wallowing in negativity, wondering what made them ill and obsessing about their condition. This makes them feel anxious and worried, which is not good for their physical well-being. Chen Ko-chia, director of the Dalin Tzu Chi Hospital’s clinical psychology center, shared a post about a “raisin exercise” which involves eating a raisin in such a way as to shift one’s attention onto something less emotional, practice positive thinking and not get stuck in the doldrums, to relieve the suffering that cancer can cause.
Chen said that when sick people feel upset, it is actually because they dwell on their illness. Worry leads to more worry and the suffering drags on and on, so they need to find some way of cutting off those negative emotions. Mindfulness does not mean having correct ideas, it means staying centered and living in the present moment. However, when people are doing things they often let their thoughts drift and find it difficult to concentrate on remaining in the here and now. If that happens to you, you can eat a raisin and practice appreciating its appearance, weight, sound and flavor. You can use your lips and tongue to experience its taste and shape, with no need to think about the past or the future. By just concentrating on tasting it, you can temporarily set your emotions aside.
Chen recommends spending about five to 10 minutes each day on feeling your present emotions or physical state. Regardless of whether you are sick or not, if you can spend five to 10 minutes less each day on worrying about things and a little more time on caring for yourself, your body will respond in a positive way.
陳可家建議，每天花約五到十分鐘時間，感受當下的情緒或身體狀態，無論生病的患者或一般大眾，每天就可少五到十分鐘的擔憂，多一點時間關心自己，身體就會給予好的回應。Source article: https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/lang/archives/2021/08/17/2003762712
