Today’s Word: harm

June 5, 2017 =========

☆  harm 害


This week’s useful phrase is “There’s no harm in trying.” This is a common phrase to use when you are not sure if doing something will be helpful or not, but since it is not likely to cause problems or do “harm” then you might as well try it.

So, for example, you might decide that a good habit for you is getting up earlier. Even though you’re not confident that you can actually get up earlier each morning and continue the habit, there’s no harm in trying – because if you do manage to get up early, then you’ll get the benefits of getting up earlier, and if you don’t end up getting up earlier, there has been no “harm” / no change to your situation. In other words, it is worth trying it.

Is there a habit that you’d like to start but you’re not sure if you can do it or not? Would there be any harm in trying to start that habit?
