Chronicles Of Crises In Our Communities

By:

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. Put down anything that may be a burden to you right now. Don’t pick it up again until after you’ve rested a while.”

 

Happy Pesach cleaning! And when you start stressing about the ceilings you haven’t gotten to, remind yourself that your children aren’t likely to have had their breakfast up there. Didn’t get to replace that shelf paper in the linen closet and to refold all the towels and bed sheets? It can wait for when your Pesach dishes have been packed away for next year and you are in a calmer frame of mind. Not to fret; the task will await you. Guaranteed no one will undertake to do it for you. Just remember the less you stress the happier and healthier you will all be.
