4. Remember that stress just means you care:

Have you ever noticed that you only get stressed by things that matter to us. This is because stress and meaning are inextricably linked. Realizing that it’s something you care about lets you know that it’s not here to set you back, it’s here to help you. It’s actually here to get you ready to be better.

5. Ask 'why':

The first question we ask ourselves when we are stressed is “Why is this happening to me? Why me? Why this? Why now?’. But, if we ask a ‘why’ question out of negativity about ourselves, your mind will come up with a list of unhelpful negative answers that make your stress worse.
