Daily Coping 25 Apr 2022

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 regularly pause to stretch and breathe today

I tend to sit a lot at my desk. I do try to raise the surface and stand a bit, but even then I end up fairly inactive for a good portion of the day. My normal schedule has me taking some breaks for the gym and to prepare food a few times a day, but it’s not enough.

Today I decided to try and change things up. I set a series of reminders to stretch and breathe every hour.

I’m going to use this as a 2 minute break from whatever, to stand up, stretch with a few yoga poses and do some deep breathing.

    Another tip, drink lots and lot’s of water. Not only is that good for your body but it will force you into getting up and going to the bathroom more often and if your place has more than 1 always pick the one furthest away so the trip is a mini-exercise.
