A lecturer was giving a lecture to his student 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 beforeholding 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 tomorrow.

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!!
