STRESS MGT...........

Had a terrible day yesterday at work luckily for me came across this tip on stress management it really worked 4 me.....

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 ...........
