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 get outside and observe the changes in nature around you.
I was sick recently. Worn out, tired, and took a few days off. During that time, I was inside, didn’t go out to the store, and really didn’t work very much. I didn’t really go outside for a couple days, which unusual for me.
When I felt better, I told my wife I’d help her get a few things done. Walking outside, feeling the change in weather, which has been dramatic a few days this fall in Denver, and seeing animals, was good for the soul. I even took a little video and enjoyed a moment with baby Phoebe.
