Excerpts from Strategy to Freedom:
My wife forwarded me this story.Â Â It is true how taking a break can do wonders.
A lecturer, when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a glass of water and asked, â€˜How heavy is this glass of water?â€™
Answers called out ranged from 8oz. to 20oz.
The lecturer replied, â€˜The absolute weight doesnâ€™t matter.Â It depends on how long you try to hold it.Â If I hold it for a minute, thatâ€™s not a problem.Â If I hold it for an hour, Iâ€™ll have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, youâ€™ll have to call an ambulance.
â€˜In each case, itâ€™s the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.â€™
He continued, â€˜And thatâ€™s the way it is with stress management.Â If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we wonâ€™t be able to carry on.
â€˜As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again.Â When weâ€™re refreshed, we can carry on with the burden.
â€˜So, before you return home tonight, put the burden of work/life down. Donâ€™t carry it home.Â You can pick it up tomorrow.
â€˜Whatever burdens youâ€™re carrying now, let them down for a moment if you can.Â Relax; pick them up later after youâ€™ve rested.Â Life is short. Enjoy! â€˜
