Moods, say the experts, are feelings that are likely to become fixed, having effects on one' s out-look ( way of looking at things ) for hours, days or even weeks. That' s great if your mood is a pleasant one, but a problem if you are sad, anxious, angry or simply lonely.
Perhaps the best way to deal with such moods is to talk them out;sometimes, though, there is no one to listen. Modern pharmacology ( 药物学 ) offers a lot tranquilizers ( 镇定剂 ) and anti-anxiety drugs. What many people don' t realize, however, is that scientists have discovered the effectiveness of several non-drug methods to make you free from an unwanted mood. These can be just as useful as drugs, and have the added benefit of being nonpoisonous. So next time you feel out of sorts, don' t head for
the drug store--try the following method.
Of all the mood-changing self-help techniques, aerobic exercise seems to be the best cure for a bad mood. "If you could keep the exercise, you' d be in high spirits, "says Kathryn Lance, author of Running for Health and Beauty.
Researchers have explained biochemical and various other changes that make exercise compare favorably to drugs as mood-raiser. Physical work such as housework, however, does little. The key is aerobic exercise--running, cycling, walking, swimming, or other repetitive and sustained activities that increase the heart rate and circulation (循环), and improve the body' s use of oxygen. Do them "for at least 20 minutes a time,three to five times a week.

Popular British author, Charles Dickens'1812--1870) family could hardly make ends meet. They could only afford to send one of their six children to school. Dickens was not that child. I-Iis parents chose to send a daughter, who had a talent for music, to an academy. Then at the age of 12, Dickens' life took another turn for the worse.
His father, a clerk, was placed in prison for unpaid debts. And, being the oldest male left at home, Dickens took up work at a factory. His horrible experience there became the fuel for his future writing.
His father was freed three months later and inherited a small amount of money. Dickens was then sent to school.
From 1836 to 1837, he wrote a monthly series of stories. Thus The Pickwick Papers, came into being, which brought fame to him.
Throughout his career, Dickens covers various situations in his novels. He wrote about the miserable lives of the poor in Oliver Twist, the French Revolution in Tale of Two Cities, and social reform in
Hard Times. He also wrote David Coppefeld, a book thought to be modeled on his own life.
"I do not write bitterly or angrily, for I know all these things have worked together to make me what I am," he once said. His "difficult childhood did indeed shape the person he became, as well as his
writing career. There are shades of young Dickens in many of his most beloved characters, mincluding David Copperfield and Oliver Twist.
Like the author, all these characters come from poor beginnings and are able to rise above their msetbacks and achieve success. "Minds, like bodies, will often fall into an ill-conditioned state from too much comfort," he once wrote.On June 9th, 1870, aged 58, Dickens died, leaving one unfinished work. The words on his tombstone read: "He was a sympathizer to the poor,

It may be pointed out that warfare(战争)as practiced by man has no parallel in nature. This is to say that within the more highly developed animal populations of this earth, there is not now, nor has there been similar destruction within
a species(物种 ) itself. In fact,one has to go to the lowhest forms of animal life, such as certain kinds of ants, to find anything comparable to human warfare. It is a curious fact that mankind appears to give the
killing of his own kind a good reason by imaging that it is a "law of nature". There are now a lot of wrong ideas about the laws of nature, of which this is one of the most incorrect and fateful( 致命的). Political beliefs have been based upon it with results that have come near to destroying human civilization. The theory that war is a biological necessity, that it is nature' s method of controlling
population and believing in the survival (生存 ) of the strong and the elimination(灭亡 )of the weak, is totally wrong and insupportable. Within the last century, when wars have been common all over the world, the human population of the earth has almost doubled.

Every Chinese-language textbook starts out with the standard phrases(短语) for greeting peo- ple;but as an American, I always found myself unable to speak freely when it came to seeing guests off at the door Just a good-bye would not do, yet that was all I had ever learned frown the terribl books. So I would smile and nod, bowing(鞠躬 ) like a Japanese and searching madly for words thatwould smooth over the visitor' s leaving and make them feel they would be welcome to come again. Inmy unease, I often hid behind the skirts
of my Chinese husband' s kindness.
Then finally, hstening to others, I began to pick up the phrases that eased relationships and sent people off not only successfully but also skillfully.
Partings for the Chinese include a lot of necessary habitual practice. Although I' m not expected to observe or even know all the rules, as a foreigner, I' ve had to learn the expressions of politeness
and protest ( 抗议，反对 ) at a leaving-taking.
The Chinese feel they must see a guest off to the farthest possible point-down the flight of stairs to the street below or perhaps all the way to the nearest bus stop. I' ve sometimes waited half an hour or more for my husband to return from seeing a guest off, since he' s
gone to the bus stop and waited for the next bus to arrive.
That' s very well,but when I' m the guest being seen off, my protests are always useless. My hostess or host,or both,insists on seeing me down the stairs and welt on my way,with iny repeating the
"Don't bother( give the trouble)to see me off" at every landing. If I try to go fast to discourage them from following, they are simply out to the discomfort of having to run after me. Better to accept
the inevitable (不可避免的).
Besides,that's going against Chinese custom, because haste (doing things quickly)is to be avoided. What do you say when you part from someone? "Go slowly. " Not farewell or Godspeed, but
"Go slowly". To the Chinese it means "Take care" or "Watch your step", or some such cau- tion, but translated literally ( 照字面地 ) it means "Go slowly".
