Whether you had a bad day with your boss or have been dumped by the love of your life, possessing healthy coping skills is critical to ensuring you can successfully survive through tough times. Particularly coping skills will enable you to deal with, minimize and tolerate life’s stressful situations. Managing stress properly will aid you to feel better both psychologically and physically and positively impact your performance.

There are different stress coping mechanisms. Some only work momentarily and aren’t practical for the long term, while others are effective all through. Coping mechanisms that are ineffective and can have negative consequences are referred to as maladaptive. On the other hand, coping mechanisms considered adequate and healthy are known as adaptive coping mechanisms.
