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 really absorbed in an interesting or creative activity.
I try to engage in some creative pastimes in my life, but often I don’t have the time to work on them. That’s been especially true lately.
A couple of nights last week my wife was busy. Rather than read or watch TV, I got my guitar, opened up YouTube, and spent an hour working through learning a song. At least until my fingers were hurting.
Didn’t completely learn anything, but I did improve some skills and enjoyed the time doing so.
