Our goal is to have a toolbox of coping skills so there are always more to choose from if one does not work. To cope effectively, we need to cope and cope, without giving up, until our stressors are manageable. Then we need to cope some more to make sure they stay that way. The trick to coping effectively is to do it regularly and make it a part of our lives. Can you think of one step you can take toward making coping a regular part of your life?
