By the way, what is stress?
I think that the stress starts out with a concern about something, soon it becomes worry which consumes our mind and develops into stress. I categorize stress as level 1 when it is just a concern, level 2 when it becomes worry and level 3 when it develops into “stress”. So the best time to catch "stress" is when it is at the level 1 category.
What happens when people get stressed? They feel that they are losing the control, they are getting off the track. So basically we want to get back on track and be in control. We want to take charge of our thoughts, our emotions, our schedule and our ability to handle the problems.
