stress management

Postby smoky » Sat Dec 13, 2008 1:46 pm

enjoy!

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 8oz. To 20oz. 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/life 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!'
>
> And then he shared some ways of dealing with the burdens of life:
>
> 1 * Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the
> statue.
>
> 2 * Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat
> them.
>
> 3* Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the
> middle of it.
>
> 4 * Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their
> Maker.
>
> 5* If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
>
> 6 * If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was
> probably worth it.
>
> 7 * It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a
> warning to others.
>
> 8 * Never buy a car you can't push.
>
> 9* Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you
> won't have a leg to stand on.
>
> 10* Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
>
> 11* Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.
>
> 12 * The second mouse gets the cheese.
>
> 13 * When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
>
> 14* Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.
>
> 15* You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the
> world to one person.
>
> 16 * Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once
>
> 17 * 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.
>
> 18* A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
