Depends on what type of problem. If its something I can do about then I work hard to ease the problem. If its something I have no control over then I use my energy to solve a problem that I can do something about.
I think that the mind focus is the key. Do we see problems as problems or opportunities and challenges to improve or prove our skills to the other. if we all could just think on that way there wouldn't be depression.
The highest understanding is, there are no problems. There are only concepts and situations that are subject to change. So I am never overwhelmed. If I empty my mind of all thoughts, where are the problems? They are only supported by my thoughts. So if I want to change a situation, I must conjure a new set of ideas and act on them. My outcome is predetermined, I know what I want to happen. I also separate my individual situations from what the media and the world is experiencing. The world is not a collective experience, it is individual. Some are filthy rich, some are poor and hopeless, some are happy, others are sad, some are healthy, some are not. Each person has their own journey and experiences.
I usually take a walk in the woods and tune in to the beautiful surroundings and sounds that Mother Nature has to offer all of us. It will help you to forget any of your problems for awhile. And also remind you that life is just too short to let problems make it any shorter!
Usually if able to I sleep. If unable to I step outside if possible and try connecting with nature a moment. Next, I start making lists. Finally, purge the lists of junk and move forward. But, I prefer sleep if at all possible first.
I take a break. Read a book or watch a movie and for a short time I drift away from reality. Then at the end of each day I thank God for helping me get through it and I ask for guidance in excepting whatever comes my way. With that piece of mind I sleep peacefully.
