The Story of the Glass of Water

A psychologist hosted a well-attended workshop about stress management.

At one point, she raised a glass of water. The audience assumed that she would ask them the well-known question: “Is the glass half empty or half full?”

Instead, with a smile on her face, she enquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”

The audience called out a range numbers from 8oz. to 20 oz.

They were eager to discover why they were asked this question. But to their surprise the psychologist responded: “The weight of the glass does not matter. What does, however, is how long I hold it.”

“If I hold it for an hour, my arm will ache.”

“If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed.”

“Your stressed and worries in life are like this glass of water.”

“If you think about them for a while, nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer, and they begin to hurt. But if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed and incapable of doing nothing.”

It is important to let go of your stresses, your fears and worries.

Early in the evening, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them into the night.

Always remember to put that glass down and give yourself a rest!
