Healthy VS. Unhealthy Coping Skills in Motherhood

We all face challenges that can feel overwhelming. It's natural to experience a range of emotions, from anger and frustration to sadness and despair. But how we cope with those emotions can make all the difference in our overall well-being

Unhealthy coping strategies, like overeating or social withdrawal, may provide temporary relief, but they can have negative long-term consequences on our physical and mental health

Instead, it's important to develop healthy coping skills that help us address the underlying issues and promote long-term well-being.

Emotion-focused coping skills can be useful when situations are out of our control or when we don't want to change the situation. This can include things like exercise, taking a bath, giving ourselves a pep talk, or meditating. These strategies help us manage our feelings and reduce stress, allowing us to feel more calm and centered.

Problem-focused coping skills, on the other hand, are useful when we want to change a desired outcome or need a solution to a problem. This can include things like working on time management, asking for support, establishing healthy boundaries, or creating a to-do list.

These strategies help us take action and find solutions to our problems, giving us a sense of control and empowerment!
