Some stressors, despite how large they may be, can be greatly diminished when we reframe our internal thoughts around them. Analyzing how we think, feel, and talk to ourselves about a source of stress can be a powerful tool, especially if we take it a step further and challenge those thoughts with a new dialogue.
For example, the author Malcolm Gladwell, in his book David and Goliath, encourages readers to recognize some obstacles in life as "desirable difficulties," a term used to describe unfavorable situations that result in advantages for the person facing them. Learning to see things in a different light can be a profound stress-management tool. See resilienceacademy.com for practical guidance on how to reframe.
