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 laugh at something today or make someone laugh.
I love comedy, and going to see a show is something I’ve missed during the pandemic. However, comedians are still making recordings and telling jokes, and I’ve enjoyed some of their efforts this past year.
I also like hearing or saying something humorous in the family. We all mis-speak at times, or we make a comment at the right time that gets everyone laughing. I’m not good enough to do it on demand, or consciously, but it does happen regularly with some of us.
Verbal, text, the right gif at the right time, I’ve had a few good ones lately that get my wife or kids to laugh, and after seeing this tip, I stopped to appreciate the humor in my world a few times and be thankful we can still laugh at things.
