Today’s coping tip is to make time to do something kind for yourself.
Learning to better take care of myself is something that I’ve been working on throughout the pandemic and continuing as we move to an endemic.
Last year I had ankle surgery, and it went well, but I stopped progressing in my recovery. I’ve struggled with balance and a little pain the last few months. I decided to take some time to work on this and try to get my body more healthy for the long term.
January is PT month for me. I’ve scheduled some physical therapy sessions that will help (hopefully) strengthen and improve my ankle. Taking a couple sessions a week, as well as daily exercises, to work on this for myself.
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.
