I 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 being busy. Allow yourself to take some breaks today.
I’m on holiday today, a welcome break as I try to comply with my 60% taken by the end of this month. As a result, I’m not trying to be busy. I asked my wife if we could take a couple days and just relax. No horses, no chores, no plans.
We’ll pack a few clothes, which is really the biggest stress item today. Then we’ll put the dogs in the car and drive to the mountains to stay for a few days.
A welcome break.
There’s definitely a guilt factor during vacations these days. I feel guilty when I step away from the computer for a while, but dang, it’s more necessary than usual these days.
I agree. Strangely I feel weirder taking time off now when everyone is in front of a screen.
Oh well, heading to Keystone now 😉
