Its the good copers who thrive. Think about the people you know who do well in life. They know how to navigate life and get the support they need. Sometimes we feel its just luck, but chances are they do many things to take care of themselves, including asking for help, taking breaks when tired, telling their loved ones how they are feeling, going to their health care providers regularly, exercising, eating well, working hard, acknowledging their accomplishments, and having fun. Who do you know who does well in life? What can you learn from them about coping?
