Remember To Put Your Glass Down

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 little while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. If you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed -- incapable of doing anything."

 

Always remember to put the glass down. :)
