Especially in these unprecedented times we are facing, coping takes on an even larger meaning in our everyday lives.

Try not to panic, as the saying goes “Keep Calm and Carry On”. The origin of this saying is attributed to a poster that the British Government produced in 1939 in preparation for WW II. We are similarly at war today, albeit with an invisible enemy.

Tasks today and for the last few months are arguably more difficult for a variety of reasons. Don’t allow yourself to be overwhelmed. Be positive and tell yourself you can handle it.

If a task or problem contains many parts, it is important to divide these parts and list them in order of importance. Then work to solve or finish each part. Once that is done the whole task is resolved.

If you fail to solve the task or problem, don’t look back or give up. Start again. You only fail, if you don’t try to succeed.

Always try to do the right thing, if you do, coping becomes much easier.

Finally, as Dr. Norman Vincent Peale extolled the “Power of Positive Thinking”, that process is one of the best methods of coping.
