Coping Skills

Two important coping skills for overcoming anxiety and depression are the ability to relax and manage stress, and the ability to change negative thinking.

Stress management is important, because when you're tense you tend to do what's familiar and wrong instead of what's new and right. When you're tense, you're not open to change.

Cognitive therapy is important because negative thinking is a major cause of anxiety and depression. If you can change your thinking, you will improve your life.

These skills are so important that I have written an entire website devoted to each topic. For more information, follow these links:
