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 send a positive message to a friend who needs encouragement.
I get these sometimes from friends, and I love them. I also try to remember to do this.
I had a friend that had to go through a tough time with a family member being sick recently. Everything is fine, but I know the aftermath of this and trying to get back to normal is hard. I made it a point to reach out every day or two for a few days to check on them and just offer encouragement.
You could do that randomly as well, even if someone isn’t needing encouragement. Just let them know you are thinking of them.
