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 make a plan to connect with others and do something fun.
My wife and I have a friend turning 50 later this year. It’s a big deal for many people, and this person is hoping to have some sort of celebration. Another friend started to put together a trip for a small group of people to go to the beach and have a fun weekend.
We weren’t sure, but decided to participate and plan. If the pandemic worsens, we can always cancel, but the timeframe is outside the window when most people expect to get vaccinated, so we’re hoping we can get together, have some fun, and enjoy life.
It’s a ways away, but it does give us something to look forward to doing with others.
