Stress Management...no joke


>>Stress Management:
>> 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, that'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, as the burden
becomes
>>increasingly heavy, 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."
>>
>> "Relax; pick them up later after you've rested. Life is short.
Enjoy
>>it!"
>> And then he shared some ways of dealing with the burdens of life:
>> * 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 read 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 serve as a
>>warning to others.
>> * Never buy a car you can't push.
>> * 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.
>> * You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the
world
>>to one person.
>> * 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 colors, but they all have
to
>live in the same box.
>>
>> A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
>> Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought about you
today. .
