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. All my coping tips are under this tag.
Today’s tip is to enjoy new music today. Play, sing, dance, or listen.
I enjoy lots of types of music, and I often look to grab something new from Spotify while I’m working, letting a particular album play through, or even going through the works of an artist, familiar or brand new.
Recently I was re-watching The Chappelle Show online, and in the 2nd or 3rd episode of the show, he has Mos Def on as a guest. I do enjoy rap, and I realized that I had never really heard much from Mos. The next day I pulled up his catalog and let us play through while working.
I love a smooth, continuous rap artist that brings a melody and a rhythm to the words. Mos Def does this, and I enjoyed hearing him entertain me for a few hours. If you like rap, and haven’t gone through his stuff, give him a listen.
