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 check in with someone who may be lonely or feeling anxious.
I have a friend going through a tough time with their relationship. As a result, I’ve been a little worried about their mental health. Since I can’t go see them, I have made it a point to reach out periodically, every few days or each week, to check on them and see if they are enjoying some things in life.
Touching base is important, maybe more important as it’s difficult to see many people during this time. While a typed note or a phone call is different, it still is a way to connect.
