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 let go of small stuff and focus on the things that matter.
This week I was a bit frustrated with my break from work. In Colorado our Governor implemented a mandatory mask order at the end of last week. All indoor activities around people need masks. My gym complied, and I couldn’t workout without one, even with no one around. Yoga was with a mask, and that was less than fun. Coaching was masks covering everyone, including kids, who didn’t enjoy it.
In fact, less kids decided to come, which is less fun for me, and less fun for them. In a time when so many are stuck without routines and interactions, sports were a good release. With most of us in a closed group, we were enjoying playing again, but that had to stop.
However, that’s fine. What matters is we try and get this virus under control. Colorado was doing very well, and my area still is not bad, but with cases creeping up, this is a small thing to think about. It’s a small annoyance, and minor loss, and ultimately, that’s I should be focused on helping to keep public health at a more healthy level.
