STRESS MANAGEMENT - A MUST!

 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."
So, my friend, put down anything that may be a burden to 
you right now. 
Don't pick it up again until after you've rested awhile.
