It depends on the nature of the problem. But I tend to visualise first what is the worst thing that can happen, then I visualise ways to cope with this. If possible, I break the problem down and tackle one aspect at a time. It is very tempting and understandable to run from problems at times - sometimes if we are physically or mentally not too great, it can be harder to cope with a difficulty. But experience tends to suggest that running away not only just postpones the inevitable but it can make it much harder to cope with when left too long.
