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 was to connect with nature. Breathe and notice life continuing.
I try to connect with nature often. I’m very lucky I live surrounded by large spaces, and lots of animals. I have learned to appreciate the quiet, the views, and the creatures around me.
I often do try to stop and take a look around and be grateful when I’m walking around. If I’ve got a dog, it’s easy to get annoyed when they stop to smell something. Much nicer to stop with them, breathe, and smile at the world.
