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 send a note to a friend you haven’t communicated with this year.
I haven’t seen many people this year, but I have tried to reach out to a few. I took this opportunity to touch base with a couple people in other countries that I haven’t been able to visit and would normally see at some point during the year.
It was good to reach out and have a short email conversation with a few individuals that I enjoy seeing, but haven’t communicated with very much under the pandemic. Part of my coping, however, is the hope that I’ll get the chance to actually see some of these people in the future.
