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 move a bit more today, even if you’re stuck inside.
I’m not stuck inside, though the weather is bad. In fact, it’s been a strange week. It was 75ish at the start of last weekend, and I cut the front lawn on Saturday, but it started to rain, so I didn’t get the back done. By Monday, it was 38F and it snowed that night.
As I type this, it’s chilly, a little windy, and somewhat miserable outside. No movement with a lawnmower or really anything outside. Instead, I’ve worked at my desk most of the day.
However, I read this tip and tried to move a bit. I used a smaller glass for water and got up to fill it multiple times. In fact, each time it was close to empty, I’d finish it and refill it.
I took a break in the middle of the day to do some yoga.
It wasn’t a big day. I only ended up with about 4200 steps, but for a day when I never went outside, I was pleased.
