Daily Coping 23 May 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 show your gratitude to people who are helping to make things better.

I think there are many people who try to make things better. Through their religion, through charity, through simple actions. Sometimes just by doing their job pleasantly the professionally.

One of the ways I am trying to show gratitude is with more thank yous and pleases for people that are working on anything around me. Those in shops, those that might be cleaning up and area, those that are raising money and awareness for their cause. If I see someone that is making the world better, like a fireman or policeman, I’ve offered to buy their coffee to snack and thank them.

It’s good to donate time and money (reminds me to schedule time with Habitat), but I also think that it is helpful to people to recognize their effort with kind words.
