Daily Coping 17 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 get outside and notice how the weather feels on your face.

While I live on a ranch, there are days that I don’t really go outside. I might work most of the day and then get in the car to go to the gym, but I sometimes forget to step outside.

However, this is Colorado, and we are blessed with amazing weather the vast majority of the time. We have over 300 sunny days a year, and that’s a big part of why I moved here.

Last weekend we had a big snowstorm. While it wasn’t what many could call the best weather, it was nice to go outside, even in some wind, and feel the weather. A cold winter day, snow falling, not miserable, but a refreshing day.

I could feel flakes drop on my cheeks, the wind chilling me where skin wasn’t covered up, but warm inside a coat, ski pants, hat, and gloves. My lungs opened up, I breathed hard while walking around and feeding some hay.

A good day to be alive.

    The Columbia area of South Carolina dodged a bullet yesterday with the threat of severe weather featuring heavy rain and possible tornados; the school districts went to virtual learning since the storm would likely hit when school was being dismissed. The afternoon turned out gorgeous, bright and sunny. I went out to the back porch and yard and that warm sunshine felt great.
