Picture a glass of water,
We’re not going to ask you if its half full or half empty…but rather how much does it weigh?
Before you wonder where were going with this, open your mind for just a few moments….
It doesn’t matter how heavy the glass is – it’s how long you hold it for.
Holding it for a minute isn’t a problem.
After an hour, you’ll notice an ache in your arm.
If you’re holding it all day, your arm will become numb.
In each scenario the weight of the glass doesn’t change.
But the longer you hold it, the heavier it becomes.
Stress and worries in life work much the same way.
Think about them for a short while and nothing happens.
Look at them a bit longer they begin to hurt…
But if you feel constantly under the burden of stress, it can manifest in other ways…
Like a weaker immune system, lack of vitality, loss of wellbeing and happiness in life, or depression and anxiety…
That’s why it’s important to remember to let go of your stresses and to focus your energy into positive pursuits that help both the mind and body flourish.
