STRESS

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."

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:

* 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 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.

* It's the second mouse that 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 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 who really cares about you has
thought about you today . . .


*May you always have Love to Share, Health to Spare, and Friends that Care



HAVE A GREAT and "STRESS-FREE" DAY!!
