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 set an intention to be kind to others and yourself this week.
This week I’m traveling to Redmond and Los Angeles. I will encounter service people in restaurants, drivers for taxis, airport workers, and many attendees at events. My wife is also going to LA with me to enjoy a weekend together after SQL Saturday Los Angeles 2022.
I am making a conscious effort today to be kind to others, let small things go, be empathetic and understanding. I’m also going to remember that this will be extra time and stress out of my week and I need to ensure I eat well, find some time to exercise, and relax when I can.
