It's a choice we make when we  are operating in "everyday" consciousness mode and our perceptions are strongly influenced by attachment to beliefs and aversions, mental set (optimistic or pessimistic),how much control we have over situations, and our resilence level. By making the shift into the observer mode and practicing mindfulness we can learn how to choose not to stress out.
