「熱到快抓狂?這樣做馬上降溫! 」- How to Stay Cool in Hot Summer?


框選或點兩下字幕可以直接查字典喔!

Well, here we are. It's August 2, and all I can say is it is hot! ACs are blasting, which means electric bills are going through the roof. And I can't help but think there has got to be a better way to beat the heat. I'm Jacob, and here at Etsy, we put together some of our finest minds to answer the ancient question of how to stay cool this summer! So come on, let's find out!
嗯,又到了。現在是八月二號,我只能說有夠熱的!冷氣隆隆轉,也就代表電費帳單要破表了。我忍不住想肯定有更好的方法來擊倒酷熱。我是 Jacob,在 Etsy 這,我們集結了一些最聰明的大腦來回答「這夏天如何保持涼爽」的老掉牙問題!所以來吧,我們一起找答案!

Ever wonder why the hottest countries eat the spiciest foods? One theory is that the spicy food causes you to perspire without actually raising your body temperature. And perspiration is actually a good thing! It hasn't kicked in yet. It'll kick in. Now it's kicking in. I feel my body temperature lowering...while my mouth burns to hell.
想過為什麼超熱的國家都要吃最辣的食物嗎?有一說是辛辣食物能讓你冒汗,卻又不會真正提高你的體溫。而流汗其實是件好事!還沒發作。等下辣勁就會來了。現在開始了。我感覺到體溫在降低...不過我的嘴巴要辣死了。

Avoid the hottest parts of the day by taking a siesta. In this kind of heat, conserving your energy is key. People may say I'm lazy, but I say I'm practicing responsible energy conservation daily.
用午睡來避開一天中最熱的時段。在這樣的溫度中,保留體力是關鍵。人們可能會說我懶,但我說我是天天盡責地在節約能源。

According to science, cooling key pressure points on your body can actually lower your body temperature and keep you cool longer. You can start by putting a wet washcloth on the back of your neck, and then you can move on to cooling your feet. All right, here it goes. Oh...it's cold! But it's refreshing...sort of.
根據科學,讓身體上主要加壓止血點涼快能實際降低體溫並讓你保持涼爽更久。你可以從放濕毛巾在脖子後開始,接著可以繼續讓雙腳降溫。好,來囉。噢...好冷!不過滿提神醒腦的...算是啦。

If nothing else works, you can always take the "mind over matter" approach. Just put yourself in a cool place mentally, and just maybe, you can trick your body into playing along. Slalom, Eskimos... That thing that happens to your breath? Steam...no. I don't know what it's called. Patagonia, Siberia, Tasmania...sort of, no? It's not that cold. Mmm...frostbite!
如果沒半樣有用,你永遠可以採取「精神戰勝物質」的方法。只要心靈上將自己放到一個涼爽的地方,然後只是也許,你可以騙自己的身體合作。障礙滑雪賽、愛斯基摩人... 那個呼氣會跑出來的東西?水蒸氣...不是。我不知道那叫什麼。巴塔哥尼亞、西伯利亞、塔斯馬尼亞...算冷,不算?沒那麼冷。嗯...凍瘡!

So how about it? You cool yet?
怎樣?你涼了沒?
