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 start today appreciating your body and health and the fact you are alive.
I do this often. I’m in the midst of working to lose some weight and get healthier. This is a slightly stressful place as I have an appointment scheduled to re-test my blood in a week or so.
However, every day I can go to the gym, I can practice yoga or lift weights, I’m grateful. Each time I think about the things I want to change, I think about how lucky I am to not have any major chronic issues.
Maybe not every time, but many times. I do think that I am lucky to not have had any major health issues, and I survived COVID (twice) without long term effects. I’m also fairly healthy, fit, and happy to be alive.
