Stress Management

How heavy do you think a carton of milk is? Well, that depends on how long you try to hold it.

If you hold it for a minute, it doesn’t feel that heavy, but what if you tried to carry it for an hour? It would be quite a burden. Try to carry it all day and you may need an ambulance.

That’s how it is with stress. Even small burdens begin to feel overwhelming the longer we try to carry them. And most of us are carrying more than one burden at a time, making it seem even more difficult.

The key to stress management is learning when it’s time to put your burdens down and rest. Just like the carton of milk, most things that worry us only feel heavy, because we haven’t learned to set them aside from time to time.

Don’t let stress get the best of you. Deal with problems in small increments, and they’ll be much more manageable.
