Daily Coping 28 Dec 2022

Today’s coping tip is to look for something positive to say to everyone you speak to.

This works well during the holiday season as most people are in a good mood and share happy thoughts. Just before Christmas, as we ran a few errands before the holiday, I made it a point to do this. My efforts:

  • Tell the person checking me in at the gym they looked nice
  • Tell my yoga teacher that I appreciated her holding the class as it was welome
  • Wish a friend in class happy holidays and ask about their family, hoping they enjoyed the time together
  • Thank, tip, and complement the person making my coffee on their outfit after class.
  • Wish all cashiers happy holidays.

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.
