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 face, she inquired ” How heavy is this glass of water ??”
Answer varied in range of 8- 20 oz.
She replied the weight does’nt matter. It depends on how long i hold it. If i hold for a minute, its not a problem. If i hold for an hour, i will have ace in my arm. If i hold it for a day,my arm will feel numb and paralysed. In each case the weight of glass does’nt change, but the longer i hold it, the heavier it becomes.
” The stress and worries are like that glass of water. Think about it for a while and nothing happens. Think about it a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long , you will get paralysed- incapable of doing anything. “
