I previously posted an article called "Great Lesson on Stress"...it seems appropriate to post this article again. Spring will bring the joy of flowers and warmer weather..it also brings on many
tasks, such as TAXES, yard clean up, planting..etc. Unfortunately many people experience way too much stress during this time.. Take time to look forward with a positive outlook...If your a person that... or knows someone that is carrying
a burden of stress, check out these suggestions.
Every past year is one of many changes, and filled with concerns for

A GREAT LESSON ON STRESS.
A young lady confidently walked around the room with
a raised glass of water while leading a seminar and explaining stress management to her audience. Everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, 'Half empty or half full?' She fooled them all. "How heavy is this glass of water?"
she inquired with a smile. Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz. She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem. If I hold it for
an hour, I'll have a 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".
She continued, "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 glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When we're refreshed,
we can carry on with the burden - holding stress longer and better each time practiced.
