Mental Health & Therapy : How Do Coping Skills Help With Everyday Life?
Your best friend just made a rude comment,
all you want to do is lash out and get angry. Well take a deep breath. How do coping skills
help with everyday life? That’s what I’m here to talk to you about. I’m Virginia Intelisano,
Mental Health Counselor, Registered Intern with the State of Florida and there are very
many effective coping skills that you can do to take care of stress. Some of them include
exercise, stretching. Doing cardio-vascular exercise and stretching not only take care,
takes care of your body, but also alleviate stress in your mind. Meditation and deep breathing
also help with this. Sometimes we get overwhelmed by the amount of stress that we have in our
life and Yoga meditation or deep breathing can help with this. It can be as simple as
watching TV, reading a book, going out with friends and making sure that you’re laughing.
Laughing everyday can help relieve stress; also, and it’s a very effective coping mechanism.
Make sure that you take time for yourself because it’s really easy to get caught up
in work, a busy schedule with the family and being the roles of many different people.
I’m Virginia Intelisano talking to you today. If you’ve any questions, or you think you
need more help, please contact the mental health professional in your area. And remember
to be safe and be sane, it’s important.
