I’ve started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here.
Today’s tip is to have a tech free day. Stop scrolling and turn off the news.
That’s not so easy for many of us. We’re embedded in technology and if we communicate with others, things leak through, whether on social media, bulletin boards, or even internal company communications.
I struggle with this, but I have gotten better on the weekends. I’ll tackle projects around the house or do things with family and try to avoid the news and ignore tech. I don’t know I can ignore it completely, as I read on my phone, but I’m going to try tomorrow and just put my phone away and have an analog day.
