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 commit to being more active, starting today.
This is tough for me. Not because I want to avoid being active, but because I typically try to be active most of the month. Here’s my March.
The week I missed? I tried to drag the tractor bucket around on the ground, by hand, on the 21st. I did some chores that day outside, so I moved, but then my back had me mostly taking it easy until the 29th.
However, I do want to commit to a different view moving forward. The weather is changing, and my wife got a bike stroller for our dogs. One can’t walk a lot, so our aim, as we are getting older, is to bike more this summer, and take the dogs.
So my commitment is to
a) start biking 2 times a week
b) add in a swim a week
c) continue with yoga and weight lifting, likely doubling up some days with a bike and weights.
