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 go outside and spend a few minutes appreciating the weather.
It’s spring here, though I know the Southern Hemisphere is preparing for winter. In either case, I suspect most of us don’t have extreme weather on some of these days, so getting outside should be possible. I had a 25C day and a –10C day in the same week not long ago, and I took advantage of the 25C day to get out, do a few things outside, and enjoy the day.
I also walked around in the –10C day, bundled up, but enjoying the snow coming down. It’s a beautiful sight when the ground gets covered, especially without much wind. Wind makes things much worse.
However, the weather is one of those things that helps me appreciate how big and amazing the world is, and taking a moment to enjoy it, no matter what is happening, is a part of life I’ve learned to appreciate.
Update: Today I drop to 3 newsletters a week at SQLServerCentral, as a way of coping a bit. I’ll still do daily coping tips here.
