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 get outside and pick up litter or do something kind for the planet.
I do try to pay attention when I’m walking around, and I pick up litter I see. It’s a bit of a habit when I’m in a volleyball gym as well. I do make sure my kids clean up, but others kids and parents aren’t always paying attention, so I usually end up grabbing a few things from chairs and floors.
I haven’t done this much on my property, so I took a walk around the perimeter recently, looking for trash that had blown away or torn up by dogs. I took a plastic bag with me and picked up some trash.
