What Are Coping Skills?

Coping skills are tools and techniques that you can use to control intense emotions, reduce your stress levels, and maintain order when you encounter stressful, difficult, or emotional situations in everyday life. Simple techniques like taking a walk, breathing deeply, or counting can work to refocus your attention when you are feeling sad, anxious, angry, or stressed. This helps to head off these emotions before they affect your overall mood and impact everyday activities like work or school.

Examples of Effective Coping Skills

Coping skills are highly personal, and what works for one person may not work for another. It is best to try a wide variety and practice them frequently to help whenever you encounter a stressful situation, or to keep you level throughout the day. Some of the more effective coping skills include:

  • Making lists to prioritize your actions
  • Deep, slow breathing
  • Taking a walk or a break
  • Counting exercises
  • Mindfulness exercises
  • Meditation or prayer
  • Anger- and stress-management techniques
  • Talking to a friend, family member, or professional

When combined with beneficial lifestyle practices like healthy eating, exercise, plenty of sleep, socialization with friends and family, and plenty of relaxation and decompression time, these techniques can help to better control your emotions and stress levels while promoting better overall health, well-being, and mood.

At Charlotte Therapy Center, we can work with you to find the coping skills that help you the most, and we can recommend therapies that treat contributing conditions, like depression, anxiety, or trauma. Contact us today to learn more.

Can Therapy Improve Coping Skills?

Cognitive behavioral therapy is an effective way to help you to actively identify unhealthy thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, and replace them with more positive and appropriate alternatives. This can help you to deal with stressful or difficult situations in a more productive manner and avoid negative thought patterns that impact your long-term mood. Our experts at Charlotte Therapy Center can help you learn the techniques you need to minimize stress and control your emotions in everyday situations.
