Stress.. Put It down for a moment

Take the time to read and take in the message this is great

A  lecturer, when explaining stress management to  an audience,
raised a glass of water and  asked, ‘How heavy is this glass of  water?’

Answers  called out ranged  from 20g to 500g.

The  lecturer replied, ‘The absolute weight doesn’t  matter.
It depends on how long you try to  hold it.
If I hold it for a minute, it’s not  a problem..
If I hold it for an hour, I’ll  have an ache in my right arm.
If I hold it  for a day, you’ll have to call an  ambulance.
In each case, it’s the same  weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it  becomes.’

He  continued,
‘And that’s the way it is with  stress management.
If we carry our burdens  all the time, sooner or later,
the burden  will become increasingly heavy:
and we won’t  be able to carry on. ‘

‘As  with the glass of water,
you have to put it  down for a while and rest before holding it  again..
When we’re refreshed, we can carry on  with the burden.
So, before you return home  tonight, put the burden of work down: don’t  carry it home. You can pick it up  tomorrow.
Whatever burdens you’re carrying  now,
let them down for a moment if you  can.’

So,  my friend, Put down anything that may be a  burden to you right now. Don’t pick it up again  until after you’ve rested a  while.

Here  are some great ways of dealing with the burdens  of life:

*  Just accept that, some days, you’re the  pigeon:
and, some days, you’re the  statue.

*  Always keep your words soft and sweet –  ,
just in case you have to eat  them.

*  Always wear stuff that will make you look  good
if you die in the middle of  it.

*Drive  carefully. It’s not only cars that can  be
“recalled” by their  maker.

*  If you can’t be kind, at least have the decency  to be vague.

*  If you lend someone $20 and never see that  person again,
It was probably worth  it.

*  It may be that your sole purpose in life is  simply to be kind to  others.

*  Never put both feet in your mouth at the same  time,
because then you won’t have a leg to  stand on.

*  Nobody cares if you can’t dance well.
Just  get up and dance.

*  Since it’s the early worm that gets eaten by the  bird,
sleep late.

The second mouse gets the  cheese.

*  When everything’s coming your way,
you’re in  the wrong lane.

*  Birthdays are good for you.
The more you  have, the longer you  live.

*  Some mistakes are too much fun to only make  once.

*  We could learn a lot from crayons… Some are  sharp; some are pretty; and some are dull. Some  have weird names; and all are different  colours;
but they all have to live in the  same box.
*A  truly happy person is one who can enjoy the  scenery on a detour.
