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 set aside regular time to pursue an activity you love.
For me, I don’t know I love a lot of things, but I do enjoy guitar and I’ve worked on it a lot this year. The last month, I’ve let it go a bit, but I’m getting back to it. I try to remember to bring it downstairs to my office, and I’ll take some 5-10 minute breaks and play.
I’ve also started to put together a little time on Sat am to work through a course, and build some new skills.
