Today’s coping tip is to write down three things you appreciate about yourself.
I don’t mind self-evaluation, but I struggle a bit to publicly talk about things I do well. Still, it’s a bit of coping for me to become more comfortable. Here goes:
- I work hard not to overcommit – I say no a lot which helps me to keep a lot of balance in my life.
- I focus on my health regularly, not obsessively – After running every day for over 4 years, I’ve learned to continue to try to work out more days, but not get worried over missing some.
- I can be extroverted – Not a lot, but I do well with audiences, presentations, talking in front of groups. It can wear me out and I need downtime, but I can do it. It’s made my life more interesting and fun.
I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQL Server Central 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.
