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.........I did.

Some really good oldies but goodies, while we are on the subject:

I love the churchill response.



When insults had Class...



I have never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great pleasure." -- Clarence Darrow



"He has never been known to use a word that might send a reader to the dictionary." -- William Faulkner (about Ernest Hemingway)



"I've had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn't it." -- Groucho Marx



"I didn't attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it." -- Mark Twain



"He has no enemies, but is intensely disliked by his friends." -- Oscar Wilde



"I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend...If you have one." -- George Bernard Shaw to Winston Churchill...

followed by Churchill's response: "Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second, if there is one." -- Winston Churchill



"I feel so miserable without you; it's almost like having you here." -- Stephen Bishop



"He is a self-made man and worships his creator." - John Bright



"I've just learned about his illness. Let's hope it's nothing trivial." -- Irvin S. Cobb



"He is not only dull himself; he is the cause of dullness in others." -- Samuel Johnson



"He is simply a shiver looking for a spine to run up." -- Paul Keating



"He had delusions of adequacy." -- Walter Kerr



"Why do you sit there looking like an envelope without any address on it?" -- Mark Twain



"His mother should have thrown him away and kept the stork." -- Mae West



"Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go." -- Oscar Wilde



The day God created the CAT, He didn't do another thing except sit down and smile!





Hope you enjoyed at least one.
