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 stop, breathe, and sit quietly for a minute. Repeat a few times.
I breathe often in yoga. It’s helped me to think about my breath at other times in life. However, I often find the workday hectic, with lots of different tasks for me to deal with. I like to power though the day, taking breaks exercise, cook, or maybe play guitar. Often these are “working” breaks.
My task today, and really more days, is to find a way to take a short break multiple times and be. Sit outside, do nothing, just appreciate life.
