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 get natural light early in the day. Dim the lights in the evening.
Like many of you, I work indoors for most of my job. While I do have a window, I can get distracted on the computer and not look outside. I do try and take some breaks, and may go outside, but likely not enough.
A few days before this post, I went to get my first COVID vaccine. I was up early, outside in the car for a few hours as we drove and waited. I came back to work, but I made it a point to get up a couple times and take a 10 minute break outside. walking around a bit and enjoying the day.
Evening was good, as I tried to take it easy, so we lowered some lights, and my wife and I read a bit and chatted in bed.
