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 contact someone that you want to spend time with during the next year and start to make plans.
I’m hoping to get some time with my extended family last year, and I’m looking forward to trying to rectify that this year. However, I have missed a few people locally in the last year that I’d like to get together with.
For me, this is a few people I’ve known in the local area that remained quite locked down during this past year. I have a friend that moved to remote work, and I did see a couple times, but not enough. We’ve lost some touch, and need to make more time to get together.
I reached out and set up some time to get together and reconnect. While the pandemic had me contacting a wider group of people, I lost some deeper touch with some others. I’m looking to try and fix that a bit in 2021.
