  • Hey, everyone, how's it going as Aaron, the language nerd here, I hope you are doing very, very well.

  • Welcome to another episode of Easy English.

  • In this episode, we are going to do something a little bit different, and I am excited.

  • I think many of you are going to like it in this video.

  • We're going to listen to a 42nd clip approximately 40 seconds from my podcast.

  • When I had a discussion with Martin from the college Info geek.

  • We were discussing worrying about the future, and Martin said some very, very interesting things on this topic.

  • So what we're going to do is we're going to first listen to this short clip from my podcast and next after that, I am going to explain some of the more advanced or some of the more difficult things that Martin said that maybe you didn't understand.

  • I think this style of video will help you to get some listening practice with natural speech in English.

  • And also I think you will be able to learn some new things in English when I explain some of the harder things or more difficult things that Martin Martin said so without a side.

  • Here is the short clip from my podcast.

  • Are you someone who really believes in, not like living in the moment and not worrying overly about the future.

  • I mean, I do plan a little bit of the future, but I am very I want to be very present minded.

  • I find that I'm much happier that way.

  • Even if Jeff just walking out in nature on I'll make a point to walk slowly.

  • I'm not really trying to get anywhere.

  • I'm just trying to smell the fresh spring soil.

  • You know, now that winter is going away and ah, the smell of the the smell of the flowers, the sound of the bees and washed and all these things just trying to intake everything that's going on and and really pay attention.

  • Because otherwise, when I'm focused on some sort of problems or the future too much and I let it just happen on autopilot, that stuff will make my day disappear so quickly, and then it'll be tomorrow.

  • And I won't even really remember what I did the previous day because I was stuck in my head the whole time, right?

  • I want to make sure that each day has at least a few chunks where I'm very in the present because just makes it more memorable than it makes it feel like, you know, life is longer when I can't do it all inside of my own head.

  • I hope you found that short clip interesting.

  • We're going to talk about four things that Martin said that maybe you didn't understand.

  • The first thing that Martin said which was a little which waas interesting that I want to talk about is the expression I want to be present minded.

  • This means if you want to be present minded, it means that you want to focus on what you are doing right now.

  • You don't want to focus on the past.

  • You don't want to focus on the future.

  • You want to focus on the now you want to focus on what is happening right now in front of you.

  • There are many people who believe that being present minded or in other words, focusing on the now, many people believe that it is easier to be calm and easier to be happy.

  • If you're focused on the present moment on what is happening right now another way, you can say another way.

  • You can say basically the same thing as you can say, I want to live in the moment.

  • Another thing, Martin said.

  • Waas, I'll make a point to walk slowly.

  • What does it mean to make a point to do something?

  • What does that mean?

  • I will explain.

  • If you want to make a point to do something.

  • It means that you absolutely 100% want to make sure that you do something.

  • For example, if I go to a university class and I always I always forget a pen and a notebook, I always forget, I might say, Man, I need I'm going to make a point toe bring a notebook and a pen tomorrow.

  • This means that I'm going toe really, really pay attention and really focus to make sure that tomorrow I don't forget to bring a pen and a notebook.

  • So Martin, what he is saying is that he will make a point to walk slowly and be present minded to to to focus on the now, even though he wants to think about the future.

  • Or maybe he wants to think about the past where maybe he wants to worry about something he's not going to.

  • He's going to make a point to focus on the now.

  • Martin also said that he wants to intake the things that are going on around him now.

  • Usually we don't say that expression using those words.

  • Usually we will say I want to take in the things that are going on around me.

  • If I want to take in the things that are happening, this means that I want to observe.

  • I wantto watch.

  • I want to pay attention to the things that are happening around me.

  • For example, I live in Calgary, which is a city in in Canada, very close, very close to Calgary is eyes the Rocky Mountains.

  • They're beautiful, They're gorgeous.

  • When I go to the Rocky Mountains, I like to take everything in.

  • I like to look at the mountains.

  • I like to observe.

  • I liketo watch them.

  • I like to see the birds that are flying.

  • I like to smell the air.

  • I want to take everything in.

  • I want to absorb everything.

  • I want to pay attention to everything.

  • So that is what Martin was saying when he wants to, He said it would take everything.

  • Usually we don't say that.

  • We usually say Take him when he says I want to take everything in It's like saying he wants to absorb and pay attention to all of the beautiful things around him.

  • The last thing I want to talk about that, Martin said.

  • Waas.

  • I was stuck in my head.

  • What does it mean to be stuck in your head?

  • Let me explain.

  • If you are stuck in your head, it means that you are thinking too much.

  • It means you're thinking and thinking and thinking and thinking.

  • And usually it means that the thinking is making you stressed.

  • You are feeling stressed because you are thinking too much.

  • So Martin was saying that if he lives, if he lives in the moment, if he is present minded, if he is making a point toe walk slowly, he's making a point to end.

  • To take in everything that is going on and he is and he is doing that.

  • It makes it easier for him to not be stuck in his head.

  • I hope that my explanations helped you a little bit.

  • What we're going to do now is we're going to listen to the same 42nd clip one more time because I have explained everything and we're going to see if you understand a little bit more than the first time.

  • Here we go.

  • Are you someone who really believes in, not like living in the moment and not worrying overly about the future.

  • I mean, I do plan a little bit of the future, but I am very.

  • I want to be very present minded.

  • I find that I'm much happier that way.

  • Even if Jeff just walking out in nature on, I'll make a point to walk slowly.

  • I'm not really trying to get anywhere.

  • I'm just trying to smell the fresh spring soil.

  • You know, now that winter is going away and ah, the smell of the the smell of the flowers, the sound of the bees and washed and all these things just trying to intake everything that's going on and and really pay attention.

  • Because otherwise, when I'm focused on some sort of problems or the future too much and I let it just happen on autopilot, that stuff will make my day disappear so quickly and then it'll be tomorrow and I won't even really remember what I did the previous day because I was stuck in my head the whole time, right?

  • I want to make sure that each day has at least a few chunks where I'm very in the present because just makes it more memorable than it makes it feel like, you know, life is longer when I can't do it all inside of my head.

  • Bye.

  • For now.

  • One very common phrase a ll Verbund English is chicken out.

  • Chicken out basically means that you want to do something But you don't do it because you feel too scared.

  • For example Let's pretend I like a girl.

  • I want to tell the girl that I like her.

  • I want to tell her Hey, I like you.

  • Do you want to be my girlfriend?

  • Uh, but I'm too scared, so I don't tell her that I like her.

  • This is This is an example of chickening out.

  • I can say Oh, I chickened out and I didn't tell her that I like her.

Hey, everyone, how's it going as Aaron, the language nerd here, I hope you are doing very, very well.
