Daily Coping 9 Mar 2021

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 start today by appreciating your body and that you’re alive.

I spend a lot of time working on my body, getting exercise and movement, trying to stay fit for the future. I’m not as good with my diet, but I’m trying.

In any case, I have some hard days. My body is sore, or as I age, different parts just hurt. In the last year, I’ve had days where I struggled to get comfortable or even walk.

However, I appreciate that I’m fairly healthy, I can practice yoga, weight lift, or ski, as I did last week. I’m grateful I’m alive and well, when far to many have lost their lives in the last year.

I’m taking a few minutes today to appreciate where I am and that I am here.

    I have a real appreciation for this post, Steve. I turned 68 last October and while I have some “ol’ dude” issues, I have to say like my Dad used to say… “I’m in pretty good shape for the shape I’m in” and “Lordy… if I’d known I was going to live this long, I’d have taken better care of myself”. 😀
