Stress Management

Stress Management.


A lecturer, when explaining stress management to an audience of kit aircraft builders held up a part from the kit and asked, "How heavy is this part?†The answers ranged from 20g to “bloody heavyâ€Â.


The lecturer replied, "The actual weight doesn't matter.


It depends on how long you try to hold it up while working out where it goes.


"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."


And that's the way it is with STRESS. 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 aircraft part, before the sun comes up again, it is wise to put it down for a while and rest before picking it up again.


When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden, normally with more success."


"So, before you curse and swear and say 088_censored.gif.2b71e8da9d295ba8f94b998d0f2420b4.gif“good morning†to the milkman on your way to bed, feeling totally frustrated, put the burden of work down. You can pick it up again tomorrow.


Whatever burdens you're carrying now, Put them down for a while."


"Relax; pick them up later after you've rested. Life is short. Enjoy it!


And then he shared some ways of dealing with the burdens of life:


Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.


Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.


Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of reading it.


Build and fly your aircraft very carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.


If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.


If you lend someone only some of your clecko’s and never see that person again, it was probably worth the cost.


Always keep in mind, it may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to be an 'example' and serve as a warning to others.


Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.


The early bird may get the worm BUT... It's the second mouse that gets the cheese.


When everything's coming your way, you're probably in the wrong lane.


Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.


You may be only one person in your world, but you may mean the absolute world to somone else.


Follow these simple instructions and enjoy your kit-building


Having explained all this, I can only conclude that a truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a long detour, (but maybe next time, they won't be overtired, and will remember to allow for a GPS).;)
