so I find this motivational words from stress management.
This came in my email yesterday under the subject “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. 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 your burdens for a while and rest before holding it again. When you’re refreshed, you can carry on.’
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. Put down anything that may be a burden to you right now. Don’t pick it up again until after you’ve rested a while.
I thought this a very good analogy. People get stressed about work, about relationships and honestly, many itty bitty petty things. Best to put them down(or give them to God if you believe in Him). Don’t pick everything up after you’ve rested. Maybe you’ll realise after putting it down, that it’s not worth carrying.
the above article really touches me, it was true though. we must not keep thinking of something that we see as a burden and instead just think of it for a while to get yourself a rest then rethink again if you really need to think about it. because stress or problem is something that’s always come up and you find yourself trapped in it. hope you all now know what to do in overcoming problem that you encounter throughout your life.
