Proper thinking: Improper thinking like worrying or angry thinking will lead to stress. Mindfull thinking like medication is the cure for stress.

Avoid stress?: You can't avoid stress, but you can manage it and minimize distress. Sometimes you can avoid or alter a stressor. Sometimes you can alter your perceptions, thoughts, & beliefs about yourself & the stressor. And you can retrain your mind/body to respond more calmly to the stressor with biofeedback & other relaxation methods. Check www.Aapb.Org & www.Bcia.Org for biofeedback professionals.
