Embrace Tranquility: The Feather on Water's Journey to Letting Go

Blog summary: In a compelling lesson on stress management, a psychologist demonstrates with a glass of water that the weight of our worries is not as important as how long we carry them. She likens stress to holding a glass of water – bearable for a short time but increasingly burdensome the longer it's held.

The blog explores common sources of stress like juggling responsibilities or searching for meaning in retirement. It concludes with a personal note on finding relief by enjoying nature walks with a pet, highlighting the importance of regular stress relief for overall happiness and well-being.
