Difference between Get into one’s stride and Take something in one’s stride

get into one’s stride—start getting comfortable with an activity:

  • It may take Helen a long time to do the job now, but she’ll work much faster when she has got into her stride.

take something in one’s stride—accept things calmly without getting excited:

  • John took the news of his transfer abroad in his stride and did not let it affect his work in any way.
