One source of stress can be those nagging problems that are hard to solve, such as a weight problem or credit card debt. You may try to ignore these problems, but that doesn’t make them go away. When you proactively face a problem that has you worried, you’re more likely to find ways to solve it. You may also feel a greater sense of control over the situation. Maybe you can brainstorm solutions with the help of a friend or loved one. Even if you find you can’t solve a problem, you may be more likely to accept it.
