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 enjoy new music today. Listen to a recommendation from someone else.
While traveling I was chatting with a friend about music. They mentioned that they like listening to Tim McGraw. I’m not a big fan of country music, though I have enjoyed a bit more while learning guitar. Johnny Cash especially has been someone whose songs I’ve come to enjoy.
I decided to give it a try, listening to the This is Tim McGraw playlist on Spotify. Not sure if this is a good representation of his music, but it was a place to start.
It’s music that is easy, upbeat, and I could see it being fun to strum along and sing in a group (if I knew the songs). It makes you tap your feet and enjoy the moment.
I don’t know that I prefer it over other genres or that I’ll listen to a lot, but I can appreciate the music and will likely try it a few times.
