1. Write, draw, paint, photography
Obviously, writing is one of my go-to coping skills, and it's more than a mere diversion. It's the most effective activism tool I've found. Art is powerful stuff. The medium doesn't matter, only the message. If you feel sad, angry, frustrated, empty -- go make something. It can help.
