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 say hello to a neighbor and get to know them better.
Tough to say hello to neighbors where I am. The nearest one is over 1/4 mile away, and they have long driveways.
I do, however, sometimes see me neighbors walking along the road. I slowed down and stopped to chat with one recently. I wasn’t pressed for time, so I took a few minutes to say hi, ask how life was going, and caught up with someone I hadn’t talked to in over a year.
It was a good use of my time.
