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 look back at the progress you’ve made at some goal or task.
This was a surprise for me. It was something that just happened a few weeks ago.
I’ve been practicing yoga for a decade or so. In that time, I’ve been listening to instructors call for knee-to-nose for years, never really thinking I could do it. I usually round my back and bring my knee in, but it’s never close to my nose.
In fact, for years, I would squeeze my abs, but not really try or think I could touch my nose.
Recently I made an effort and was surprised to feel my knee touch my nose. Just a light touch, but it was surprising.
An amazing piece of progress that made me smile the rest of class and most of the day.
