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 listen to a piece of music without doing anything else.
I’m going to predict something here, since I’ll have taken a plane flight last night (when this publishes). The first one in over a year.
I tend to like to listen to music in airports. I’ll put on a playlist and watch people walk around. Or I’ll listen when I get on the plane and look out the window, just observing the world.
I’m with my wife this time, but there will be some times as we takeoff, before a beverage, when I’ll put on some headphones and just listen. Since I’m writing this a couple days before, I’m going to put on my “Fun for Dad” playlist, with songs my kids have sent me, and just enjoy the takeoff and view of the Colorado countryside.
