In an Email I got
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.
