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 mentally scan your body and notice what it is feeling today.
I do this more and more all the time. A few week ago I hurt by back while trying to drag the front end loaded bucket around on the ground. I should know better, and I lost about a week of being able to move without pain.
Today, I’m feeling good. It’s a few days after coming back from a trip, where I walked quite a bit. I remembered to wear my ankle brace walking around town, I took things slower, to the chagrin of my wife. She likes to walk fast, but she’s adjusting with me. I stood on hard concrete floors, but then I got back to yoga and some weight lifting this week.
I feel good. There are some minor aches and pains, a slightly tight back, some muscle soreness from work. No neck pain, fingers feel good (which is important), my eyes aren’t too tired after a good night’s sleep. Knees good.
Ready to keep moving forward in life.
