Daily Coping 1 Apr 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 appreciate your hands and all the things they enable.

Lately, I’ve appreciated my back more, since I threw it out trying to change implements on the tractor. However, today, I need to appreciate my hands.

First, I type with them. A lot. In some sense, my hands are my living in this business. Especially given how poorly voice recognition works for me.

Second, I play guitar. Not that well, but I’ve done a lot more in the last year, and I find it relaxing. Days when my hands are tired or sore, I notice it’s harder, and I appreciate that I can still move them. Hopefully for years.

Next, I work with wood on the ranch, often building or repairing things, and my hands are a big part of that.

There are other things, but I certainly appreciate all the things I can do with my hands.
