Today’s coping tip is to share a happy memory or inspiring thought with a loved one.
This is a memory for me:
This came up in a Google Photo memory and I showed my wife. Dec 31, 2020, after nearly a long year of the pandemic. Lots of isolation and separation from family and friends, but my wife and I took a few days together in the Colorado mountains.
We hiked, walked, skied a little, but mostly enjoyed being in a different place. The same circumstances (no eating in restaurants, limited contact with people, one of us in a store at a time), but still a break and a welcome one.
A happy time during a hard time.
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.
