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 try a new online exercise, activity, or dance class.
I like going to the gym for Yoga 2-3 times a week. However, sometimes my schedule is a bit busy and I can’t find the time to go. I’ve written about using Yoga with Tim or Yoga with Adriene on YouTube to fill in those busy days.
I also have a Lifetime membership that includes some livestreamed and on-demand classes. I’ve never used those, but I decided to give one a try for this tip and see how it might help me cope with a busy schedule.
My wife and I had done a kickboxing class a few weeks back, and there is a similar on-demand class called Strike. I have some travel this week and my plan is this morning, Friday, to try this class early in the morning before I have to go to work. Rather than sit on a bike, this will my coping activity today.
Update: I did the Strike class and it was an OK workout this morning. 30 minutes and an average heart rate of 122bpm for the session.
