Facts GalleryThe Glass of Water

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. 
As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: ”How heavy is this glass of water?”

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, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, 
I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn't change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.”

She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. 
Think about them for a while and nothing happens. 
Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. 
And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”

It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. 
As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. 
Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. 

In short, just remember to put the glass down from time to time.

Why the Calgary Stampede must go on

Why the Calgary Stampede must go on | For The Love Of This And That | Scoop.it
You may be one of the people who loves it. You may be one of the people who hates it. You might be that person who, for 10 days in July, transforms into an urban cowboy, rootin’ and tooting’ all over town.
john kubbernus's insight:

I Myself Pondered the Concept - But This Makes Sense I Think: CALGARY Never Gives In and is a STRONG Community of People and Commitment

 

"We need people to come to our city and spend their time and money. We need to welcome them with warm, open arms to tell them,

 

‘yeah, we’ve just been through a terrible situation, but our doors are always open to you, and to everyone else.’

 

"The Calgary Stampede pumps tens, if not hundreds of millions of dollars into the local economy. At a time when we’re being pummelled in terms of economic production — shops and stores closed, projects on hold or cancelled — we need to have this boost, just for the bottom line."

Natural Health and Organic Living: Safe Body Fat Levels

Natural Health and Organic Living: Safe Body Fat Levels | For The Love Of This And That | Scoop.it
john kubbernus's insight:

Your Optimal Range 
So what's the safe body fat range? 
For females who do require more essential fat, you want to be between 21-33% if you're 20-40 years of age and be 23-35% if you're over the age of 40. This is the recommended amount to maintain proper health and going outside of these ranges are what will bring about the problems listed above. 
For males, they can be quite a bit leaner and have a healthy range of body fat set to 8-19% for the age group of 20-40 years and have a healthy range set to 11-22% for those that are 41-60 years of age.
