How to use Cope Notes
While you don't have to follow these steps to feel the impact of Cope Notes in your everyday life, we think they'll make it easier than ever to get the most out of your subscription.
It might sound obvious, but saving us as a contact in your phone will help your brain associate our messages with positivity and progress. After all, a text from “Cope Notes" feels a lot more personal than a text from “1-888-705-2673,” right?
Because our texts are designed to interrupt the stress of daily life, many of our subscribers open them the moment they come in. Others prefer to save them for later, when they'll have more time to process them.
Regardless of when you choose to open it, each text is an opportunity to pause, unplug from anxiety, and be present. Taking a deep breath as you read each message allows it to sink in and leave a longer-lasting impression, transforming it into an even more powerful agent of change.
Some of our texts will feel spot-on, like we’re watching your every move (we aren’t). Others, at first glance, may seem like they don’t pertain to you. But no matter which text you receive today, we encourage you to read it with an open mind.
When we text you, it’s personal; you’re the only person in the world to receive that text on that day at that time. Ask yourself:
Why do I need to hear this right now?
What does this have to do with me?
How can I apply this to my own life?
By searching for meaning and making an effort to view each text within the context of your life's circumstances, you become an active participant in your own growth.
Journaling has been proven to improve mental and emotional independence and IQ, making it easier to process complex thoughts and emotions.
Some texts specifically ask for a response, while others are more open-ended statements that simply get your brain’s wheels turning. Although you never have to text us back, we’ve found that subscribers who regularly respond to our messages have reported the highest levels of growth.
Just like a physical journal, we won't respond, we won't interrupt, and we won't share or judge anything you say. There isn't a counselor on the other end of the line—Instead, think of Cope Notes as a digital journal that’s always willing to start the conversation and give you the space to speak freely.
Want to keep track of your growth over time? Need a little nudge in the right direction? Curious about how you felt a few weeks or months ago?
You can always scroll through your Cope Notes text thread to find hidden gems from the past, glimpses of perspective for the present, and inspiration for the future. Enjoy!
