Once A Professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water

in it.

He held it up for all to see, Then asked the students,

"How do you think this glass weighs?"

"50 gms!", "100 gms!", "150 gms, the students answered.

"I really don't know unless I weigh it," said the professor. " But, my question is:

What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?"

"Nothing" the students said.

"Ok, what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?" the Professor asked.

"Your arm would begin to ache" said one of the students.

"You're right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?"

"Your arm could go numb, you might have severe muscle stress and paralysis,"

You have to go to hospital for sure!

Ventured another student. All the students laughed.

"Very good. But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?",

asked the professor.

"No" replied the students.

"Then what caused the arm ache, the muscle stress?

Instead what should I do?"

The students were puzzled. "Put the glass down!"

Said one of the students.

"Exactly!" said the Professor.

"Life's Problems are something like this.

Hold it even longer, they begin to to paralyze you' and you will not be able to do anythings."

"It's important to think of the challenges (Problems) in your life, but


to ' put them down' at the end of every day before.

you go to sleep."

"That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh, can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!"
