应对紧张(Dealing with tension)
caught up in the rush of life, we have forgotten how to live, how to find simple things charming.
taking a walk at night under the stars provides something that business deals cannot provides; enjoying warm sunlight, birds' songs and flowers’ fragrance is not for poets only, but for everyone. meditation, too, is a great need. meditation brings understanding of life's relationships, purposes，objectives,and rewards, sharp focus. it is an aid for tense nerves.
the only way to cope with tension is to learn how to manage one’s body and one’s mind. resting includes time in bed as well as short periods of relaxation. one may relax when walking on the street, by flexing his muscles and diverting his mind to things around him. moreover, enough time should be taken for a leisurely lunch. the most inefficient way of handing tiredness and pressure is to take stimulant or drugs.
everyone has only 24 hours a day, and a limited number of years to live. so we need to admit limitations of physical and mental strength, and to keep within those limits.
