Daily Coping 7 May 2021

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 talk to someone else and get some advice from them on how to cope with life.

I have a couple people I talk to regularly in my life. They are close friend or family, and people I trust. Lately I’ve had a couple rough patches in life. Nothing major, but just down, unmotivated, and a little frustrated with the state of the world.

It’s easy to get caught up in your own head and lose perspective on the world. I’ve been able to unload some thoughts on friends and have them remind me of good things, or where I may be overreacting, or just give me support by listening. It’s helped me to work through a tough few days and improve me outlook and attitude.

This last year has been hard, and while my life overall has been great and easy, I still get stressed or sad or frustrated with the world. I bounce back and forth a bit, and helping able to talk with others has helped me cope.

Reminder: Today is the WIT Data Platform Mental Health and Wellness Day. I’m speaking, and if you want a few minutes to hear how others cope or deal with life, register and join us.

    “Listen to your body and be grateful for what it can do.”
    I was struck by this remark on SQL Server Central. And it is so very appropriate in light of my 42-year IT career. As I look back in retrospect over my 78 years I can only marvel at the apparent wisdom in the design of our bodies. Never have I worked with a technical system so perfectly designed and so ‘bug free’ as the human body. All the joints and muscles and organs work together to provide all the necessary and appropriate features. The human body has to be the most perfect ‘work of art’ ever.
