I’ve started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, 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 find an action you can take to overcome a problem or worry.

As a result, I try to keep things in perspective. One of the concerns I do have is contributing to a growing number of cases in the US. I have started coaching again as Colorado looks to open up, but I’m still worried.
I’ve tried to think about how to be more careful, avoiding talking directly at someone, wearing a mask more often, keeping my hands and equipment clean. It’s not perfect, but there are things I can do in my control to try and be more careful.
