Today’s coping tip is to look back at a previous coping tip that required planning and evaluate how it helped.
One of my tips in December was to listen to new music. I downloaded the four sets of music for my trip and listened to them. I was surprised how I felt.
- This is Santana – A good mix, which I enjoyed. #2 on this list. I listened a few times to this playlist.
- Blessings and Miracles – newer music, but not as enjoyable as I thought. I listened once and then part of a second time and gave up. #4
- The Pinkprint – New, and I’ve enjoyed some Nikki Minaj on other playlists. However, I didn’t enjoy this one apart from a couple songs. I did listen a couple times, but found myself drawn to the other album. #3.
- Beam Me Up Scotty – I found myself listening to this a number of times, maybe 5-6 between my airline trips to London and Lisbon. #1 on this list.
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.
