How can you manage stress through acceptance and keeping a positive attitude?

ANSWER

Get started by accepting that there are events you can't control. Then try to keep an upbeat attitude. Give yourself positive messages (''I'm doing my best,'' or ''I'll ask for help''), rather than defaulting to negatives (''Nothing goes right for me,'' or ''Bad things always happen to me'').
