If the cause of stress will soon be gone (unpleasant situation in a traffic jam for example), if the cause lies in the past (you regret something you have not mastered) if the thing you can not do anything about (you forgot to phone home in the morning) or if (after much deliberation ) not much of anything substantial, just let the stress leave as small showers. If the cause is more important, the stress we suffer more often or longer, and can also affect the cause, then it is necessary to respond to events.

If you want to solve everything at once and you stand alone against an impossible task, probably fail again and you will feel even worse than before.
