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 give your body a boost by laughing or making someone laugh.
I was in Las Vegas a few weeks ago and went to a comedy show. My wife and I enjoy comedy and thought it would be a good night out with friends.
It was bad. Not the worst show, but probably top 2 or 3 bad ones. I can’t believe the headliner was on a marquee outside the MGM.
I didn’t laugh that night, but I decided to do something different when I made this tip. Instead of music or the radio when I ran errands, I decided to put on my Pandora comedy station. I have one built from Ricky Gervais, Greg Giraldo, and Dave Chappelle. I even kept it going with headphones while in the store.
I laughed in the car out loud, and smiled in the store.
