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 be kind to the planet. Use less energy today.
This isn’t always easy to do, but I am trying to be a little better about this. As my kids leave the house, with the last one going in a couple weeks, I know that there should be less energy usage around here. I’ve made it a point to shut down my computer more often, and also kill more electronics that don’t need to be plugged in and running. There are some we rarely use, so flipping a power switch on a strip is the best way to reduce some usage.
I’m also trying to make less trips to the gym and store, combining things when I can. Small changes, but lots of small changes add up.
