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 drink an extra glass or two of water today.
Denver is a high desert, so this matters, but really this is something most of us could be better at in our lives. Our bodies could use more water, it refreshes is, cools us, can make us work (drink cold water), and can slow down our other eating and drinking.
I used to drop 4 large water bottles on my desk every morning. Since I’ve started doing some things outside and going to the gym more, I’ve gotten out of the habit. This tip was a good reminder to me, and I drank and extra bottle, trying to get back to my gallon-a-day habit.
I recommend some caution. You CAN actually drink too much water depending on you physical mass and activity (or lack there of) levels. Do a search for it. It’s worth knowing.
