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 make time to run, walk, bike, swim, dance, cycle, stretch, or some other activity.
I’ve been trying to do more outside as the weather changes. Some chores, but also moving some exercise outdoors. I was lucky with an extended summer last year that had yoga and swimming outdoors, but since that ended in early October, it’s been mostly indoor yoga, weight lifting, and biking. The few times I have hiked, walked, or biked outside, it’s often been chilly or overcast.
With that in mind, I decided to go walk to the mailbox for a few days. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but my mailbox is a half mile from my house. I took dogs, leashed them when we left the property, and had a few nice jaunts, even in not great weather.
A nice break in the middle of a couple days.
