It's about taking each day at a time and doing your best.
Coping is actually really personal. Different things work differently for different people, which can make finding what works best for you a little bit complicated. Fortunately, there are lots of different types of coping strategies and they can make a big difference to your stress and anxiety levels.
Once you find strategies that work, make sure you practice them regularly! When you practice coping strategies, you are forming new neural pathways in your brain.
