People make strange decisions when they are stressed.
What is the “Strangest Decision” you have ever made when you were stressed?
Here’s a few of those decisions, They really happened the weekend of the Hurricane:
- One man was tying himself to a telephone pole to weather the storm.
- Another was kite surfing in the huge waves.
- Another man, donned what appears to be a snorkeling mask, said that “he’s going ride out Hurricane Irma in a store front on Duval Street and won’t evacuate.

One day a professor taught stress management principles to an auditorium filled with students. He lifted a glass of water and asked, “How heavy is this glass of water I’m holding?”
Students shouted out answers ranging from eight ounces to a couple pounds. He replied, “Hmmm, well, the absolute weight of this glass doesn’t matter. However, how long I hold it does matter!
If I hold it for a minute or two, it’s fairly light. If I hold it for an hour straight, its weight might make my arm ache a little. If I hold it for a day straight, my arm will likely cramp up and feel completely numb and paralyzed, forcing me to drop the glass to the floor. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it feels to me.”
Heads nodded and the class saw the wisdom and agreed. The professor continued, “Your stresses and worries in life are very much like this glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and you begin to ache a little. Think about them all day long, and you will feel completely numb and paralyzed – incapable of doing anything else until you drop them.”
One last point the Professor said, It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses and worries. No matter what happens in life, as early At night as you can, “put all your burdens down.” Don’t carry them through the night and into the next day with you. If you still feel the weight of yesterday’s stress, it’s a strong sign that it’s time to put the glass down.
