What are some coping skills for stress?

Some coping skills for stress include exercise, yoga, meditation, breathing exercises, and practicing gratitude.

Some easy ways to reduce stress-levels include  taking time for yourself, breathing deeply and slowly, and focusing on your breath.

Prioritizing self-care is also important since you can't help others if you are not helping yourself first.

Some people look to things like spending more time in nature to help them with their stress.

It's helpful to write about your feelings or to talk with a therapist about your struggles. It might also help you cope if you take time off from work or school and find comfort in others who have gone through similar experiences as yourself. If possible, look for people going through something similar so that they can be someone you can lean on during tough times.
