Daily Coping 16 Jul 2020

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.

When things go wrong, be compassionate to yourself.

For the most part things have gone well for me that last few months. However, there have been a few bumps in the road, which are minor in the scheme of things, but they don’t always feel that way in the moment.

I was doing some furniture movement around the house recently and I hurt my back. It was slightly strained, and really needed a couple days of rest to heal. I hate laying in bed for too long, and I hate not getting things done.

This item actually came from my wife, who reminded me to relax and take care of myself, accepting limits for a couple days.

I did, and I feel better. It wasn’t easy, but I consumed some video, practiced some Duolingo on my phone, and read a lot. It was a good break, even if it was unwanted.
