Occupational Health Service promoting coping strategies throughout September
25 August 2011
When facing challenging times in our lives, we will all use different coping mechanisms to help us through.
- Challenging negative thoughts
- Regular exercise
- Healthy diet
- Adequate sleep
- Supportive network of friends, family or colleagues
- Knowing how to relax
However, some people may turn to less effective coping mechanisms such as alcohol or illegal substances.
Free, confidential advice on developing effective coping strategies or on managing drug and alcohol problems, is available from your employee assistance programme (Username: UCL Password: employee) or call on 0800 243 458.
