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 shift your mood by doing something you really enjoy.
A different type of tip for a Monday. Usually Friday is when you might aim to do something fun for the weekend. However, let’s shake things up on Monday.
What do I really enjoy? Time with my wife and kids, coaching, yoga, and snowboarding. July in Colorado takes the last one out, but I do enjoy getting outside anyway. For this Monday, I’m going to schedule yoga for the evening.
I do yoga regularly, but I’ve been practicing in the mornings almost exclusively the last few months. There is a great teacher that I enjoy, and I’m scheduling a Monday night to change up my routine and enjoy time with a person that makes me happy.
