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


Where do you get this stuff??
I actually had been subconsciously looking for stress-relieving things to do, in fact today I felt a lot more at ease just listening to classical music from the greats such as Beethoven, etc.!! (Don't figure!)
Some pointers are very helpfull that I didn't even consider...for example, I CAN push the car I bought!! But will have to keep it in mind when I want to buy a Truck!
And, nothing's coming my way, so I MUST be in the right lane! (Too bad I'm not left handed, or I'd be in the RIGHT mind!) LMAO!

After reading your post, i feel some relax. I think to avoid from stress time management is so much important like you are asking a glass of water. Your post helpful for me avoid from stress and anxiety. But firstly one other thing is very important that how you make a time schedule in your life so you need to know about of yourself what you can do and how many for long time.
