Put The Glass Down
A lecturer was giving a lecture to his students on stress
management. He raised a glass of water and asked the audience,
"How heavy do you think this glass of water is?" The students'
answers ranged from 20g to 500gm.
"It does not matter on the absolute weight. It depends on how
long you hold it.
If I hold it for a minute, it is OK.
If I hold it for an hour, I will have an ache in my right arm.
If I hold it for a day, you will have to call an ambulance.
It is the exact same weight, but the longer I hold it,
the heavier it becomes."
If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, we will
not be able to carry on, the burden becoming increasingly
heavier. What you have to do is to put the glass down, rest for
a while before holding it up again.
We have to put down the burden periodically, so that we can be
refreshed and are able to carry on.
So before you return home from work tonight, put the burden of
work down. Don't carry it back home. You can pick it up
Whatever burdens you are having now on your shoulders, let it
down for a moment if you can.
Pick it up again later when you have rested.
Rest and relax. Life is short, enjoy it!
