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 for a bit longer and you begin to hurt. If you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”
Don’t carry your stresses into the evening. As soon as possible let go of your worries. Remember to put the glass down. (Unknown Author)
