  导语:如果总是怀揣沉重的负担,随着压力越来越大,迟早我们会崩溃掉。你需要放下它休息一下,调整自己,继续前行。现在就随外语教育网小编一起来欣赏美文吧(*^__^*) ……
 

  While explaining stress management to an audience, the lecturer raised a glass of water and asked 'How heavy is this glass of water?' Answers called out ranged from 20g to 500g.

 

 

The lecturer replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long you try to hold it. 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."

  He continued, "And that's the way it is with stress management. 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."

  "So, before you return home tonight, put the burden of work down. Don't carry it home. You can pick it up tomorrow. Whatever burdens you're carrying now, let them down for a moment if you can."

  Here are 5 simple ways to increase your peace of mind:

  1. Do your most daunting task first thing in the morning
  It's tempting to start your day with easy tasks. Don't. Pushing a daunting task back is like holding a glass of water in an outstretched arm. At first nothing happens, but if you do it for hours or even days, you will soon feel the stress. Do the most annoying task first thing in the morning, and enjoy increased productivity and peace of mind for the rest of the day.

  2. Let go of things you don't control
  You make plans to go outside with friends. But at the last minute, it starts raining. What's your reaction?
Some people upset and angry, and find the nearest person and start complaining to them. "It's not FAIR that it's raining. This _always_ happens to me!…"
  That's not going to accomplish anything - the rain won't stop just because you throw a tantrum. *The rain doesn't care.* So make the best of the situation. What I do in such situation is go for a quick walk in the park (because rain has its own awesomeness), or just lie in bed reading a good Terry Pratchett book, listening to the rain beating on my window.
Make the most of what you do control, and don't worry about what you don't.

  3. Don't worry about what others are thinking
  I used to be very self-conscious about my dancing. I would rarely go out with my friends, and even if I did, I wouldn't dance, instead just standing awkwardly by the side, because I was worried of what others would think.
Then, one day in high school, I decided that enough was enough. So the next time I went out with my friends, I just went to the dance floor, and danced like nobody was watching. And the funny thing was - nobody cared. In fact, people only liked me MORE, because I was having fun.
