Remember To Put The Cup Down...

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to 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 100g to 300g.
She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matters. 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 remains unchanged, but the longer i hold it, the heavier it becomes.

The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water.
Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them for 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.
