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 do an act of kindness to make life easier for someone else.
In the current world, I don’t get the chance to see many people. Even those I do get to see are light, brief contacts. The person I see most often is my wife, and she certainly has a very busy life. Her horse training hasn’t slowed with the pandemic, and with mild winter weather, she has very full days.
I like to cook, so I made it a point a few times in the last couple weeks to make lunch, pack up a plate, and carry it out to the barn/arena so she could eat while teaching. She often won’t take the breaks, or has a tight schedule, so providing her some food makes life easier.
