put the 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 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 paralysed – incapable of doing anything."

Remember to put the Glass Down
