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 look out for positive news and reasons to be cheerful today.
I actually tend to look for positive news in social media, but only in a couple places. The first is Instagram, where I post some pictures, primarily for my Mom and friends. I have a few accounts I follow, and I like to see what other people post, what captures their imagination, and often, what makes them smile.
Often, that’s a lift for me because most people share the exciting and happy moments.
The other place is LinkedIn, where I tend to see less complaining, but more people showcasing what they’ve done well in their careers. I can like, comment, and praise them for their efforts.
There is good news elsewhere, but often buried in lots of no-good news.
