Professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water in it.  He held it up for all to see & asked the students”How much do you think this glass weighs?”
 ’50gms!’ ….. ‘100gms!’ …..’125gms’  …the students answered.
   “I really don’t know unless I weigh it,” said the professor, “but, my question is:   What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?”
   ‘Nothing’ …..the students said.
    ‘Ok what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?’ the professor asked.
   ‘Your arm would begin to ache’ said one of the student
   “You’re right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?”
   “Your arm could go numb, you might have severe muscle stress & paralysis & have to go to hospital for sure!”  ventured another student & all the students laughed
  “Very good.”
  “But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?”  asked the professor.
 ‘No’…. Was the answer.
 “Then what caused the arm ache & the muscle stress?”
 The students were puzzled.
 “What should I do now to come out of pain?” asked professor again.
 “Put the glass down!” said one of the students
 “Exactly!” said the professor.

   Life’s problems are something like this.   Hold it for a few minutes in your head & they seem OK.  Think of them for a long time & they begin to ache.  Hold it even longer & they begin to paralyze you. You will not be able to do anything. It’s important to think of the challenges or problems in your life

But EVEN MORE IMPORTANT is to ‘PUT THEM DOWN’ at the end of every day before You go to sleep..  That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh &strong & can handle any issue,  any challenges that comes your way.  So, when you leave office today,    Remember My friend:  ‘PUT THE GLASS DOWN TODAY! ‘

    If your methods of coping with stress aren’t contributing to your greater emotional and physical health, it’s time to find healthier ones. There are many healthy ways to manage and cope with stress, but they all require change. You can either change the situation or change your reaction. When deciding which option to choose, it’s helpful to think of the four As: avoid, alter, adapt, or accept.
    Since everyone has a unique response to stress, there is no “one size fits all” solution to managing it. No single method works for everyone or in every situation, so experiment with different techniques and strategies. Focus on what makes you feel calm and in control.
    Dealing with Stressful Situations: The Four A’s
    Change the situation:
    * Avoid the stressor.
    * Alter the stressor.
    Change your reaction:
    * Adapt to the stressor.
    * Accept the stressor.
