Today’s coping tip is to send a gift to someone new.
I have been sending gifts to my daughter at college every month or so, but I decided I ought to do this for others. I am sending out two packages. One to a family member, who I’m not naming here as they might not get it before this publishes.
Second, I picked a friend that has had some ups and downs. I’m both cheering them on and sending empathy, but I wanted to reach out and send a small care package to them as well.
Just a random gift. My family has moved away from everyone buying for everyone else, so I’m expanding that by picking a few people randomly to send things to throughout the year.
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.
