Daily Coping 21 Dec 2020

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 see how many different people you can smile at today.

I often wave and smile at people when I drive around my neighborhood. I smile and wave at people in town, especially kids. I don’t seem to meet a lot of people these days, and with masks, I can’t always let someone know I’ve smiled or see if they smile back.

I can, however, count my smiles. On a recent day I had to go to the doctor and the grocery before heading home. I smiled at these people, some of whom responded, so I’m guessing they could tell I was smiling under my mask.

  • nurse admitting me into the facility
  • doctor examining me
  • 2nd nurse taking my blood
  • receptionist returning paperwork
  • employee walking into store
  • cashier
  • 3 family members

Not a huge total, but I managed to get 9 people today.
