Stress is a normal part of everyone's life and there are healthy ways of dealing with it. You can change or avoid the sources of stress. You can change the way that you respond to stress and you can learn to relax by utilizing your stress plan!

Last week we began formulating a stress plan. Today, we will be talking about coping. It generally falls into five categories:

•    Physical
•    Mental
•    Social
•    Diversions
•    Spiritual

Pick 2 for each category and rank on a scale of 1-10 the level of relaxation/stress relief this activity provides for you.

The next time your stressor rears its ugly head, rate the level of stress you are experiencing and pick the corresponding numbered coping strategy.

Have fun! Don’t be afraid to list the items you’ve chosen for your categories, may help another stressed member!
