3 Useful Strategies for Coping With Stress

3 Useful Strategies to Cope With Stress

Some of us run to clear our minds, but for many people, the stress of everyday life prohibits motivation and enjoyment we need to go outdoors. Here are three useful strategies for coping with stressful situations.

Strategy No 1: ACCEPTANCE

When there’s no way for you to control a situation, the best and healthiest way of coping is to practise acceptance. If there’s nothing you can do about it, let it go. Don’t get hurt and angry because you’ll just jeopardise your health without solving the problem.

Strategy No 2: WALK AWAY

If you feel unable to sufficiently control a situation and you can’t accept it or find a way round it, another healthy decision would be to turn your back on it. In this way you regain control over a situation and decide that now it’s best for you to leave the situation as it is. This will feel empowering. Walking away or cutting off from something might be the wisest choice you can make at that time.


Another way to feel more in control in general is in making decisions. When we make the right decisions we feel in control, maybe not of the circumstances, but of ourselves and our actions. Sometimes that’s the only control we can have. If appropriate, deciding on a plan for making changes that will bring us more control is always energising, and starting to implement the action is always empowering.
