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 say positive things to the people you meet today.
For many of us, we don’t meet too many people on a daily basis. Some of us are locked down, some of us just don’t follow routines that allow this.
I am restricted, but I do still go out here and there. The grocer, the gym, etc. Recently, I was out to pick up some take-out from a local restaurant. It was quiet there, with few in-person diners, but I took a minute to chat with the employee, thanking them, telling them I’m glad they’re still working and open, and letting them know I enjoy and appreciate their food.
I got a smile, at least, I think I did. We were all wearing masks.
