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. Remember to put
the glass down!
