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 make time to do something playful, for the fun of it.
I spend a lot of time getting things done. For work, around the ranch, cooking for the family, hitting the gym, etc. Often I’m too type A and too driven to be playful that often. I do have fun, especially at events and with friends.
I’m going to have some fun this weekend. I’m going to plan a night out at the movies, with my wife and kids, just having some fun and not being at all productive. Something we used to do in the past and have gotten out of the habit of wasting a few hours and having some fun with my family.
