Let go of your Stresses!

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!
