Lesson on Stress

A young lady confidently walked around the room while
leading and explaining stress management to an audience
with a raised glass of water. Everyone knew she was
going to ask the ultimate question, 'half empty or half
full?' She fooled them all. "How heavy is this glass of
water?" she inquired with a smile.

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It
depends on how long I 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." She
continued, "and that's the way it is with stress. 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--holding stress longer and better each time
practiced. So, as early in the evening as you can, put
all your burdens down. Don't carry them through the
evening and into the night ... pick them up tomorrow.
