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 walk a different route today and see what you notice.
I don’t walk a lot of places. I tend to drive to town, and usually park near where I need to go (gym or store). However, I did decide to try something different when I saw this tip.
I was going out to the barn to check on my wife. Usually this is out the garage, turn right, walk to the barn. This time I went out the front door, turned left, and looped around the house. I went around the riding arena in the back, looking at the state of that area after a winter. I checked out things that might need fixing, some things that might get thrown away, checked the fence to see if deer or coyotes (or my dogs) had damaged it.
A nice, easy walk, and a different view of a simple thing I often do. Just not in this way.
