Shutting Down Coping Tips

It’s been nearly 3 years of Daily Coping Tips here at the Voice of the DBA. I started these when the pandemic hit and the world shut down. I’ve enjoyed them and they have helped me deal with life, and more importantly, think more about life.

However, they do eat up some time, and I am planning on stopping on Mar 24, 2023. That gives me 3 years of daily workday tips, ending on that Friday.

Hopefully these have helped you, and if you miss them, feel free to flip through the past ones and see what I’ve suggested and how I’ve implemented the tips.

If you want to set up your own calendar moving forward, looking for ways to make life better, I’ve been inspired by the Action for Happiness calendar, which comes out each month. I’ve made this one of my wallpapers for the last three years.

  1. Not just take time but how in the world did you come up with 3 years * 52 weeks worth of tips without repeats?

    Thanks for sharing for 3 years, Steve. Many have been interesting, many have been helpful, and many have been inspiring. I’ve also wondered how you ever found the time to crank these out on such a regular basis and that was a form of inspiration in itself.

    Thank you for what you’ve done and do enjoy the extra time you’ll have now. I know I would.

    Thanks for the last 3 years of these, Steve. I’ve always been amazed at how regularly these have come out and the effort that goes into them.

      Thanks for the comment and you are welcome. They’ve been very interesting to me. In some sense I’ll miss them, but they have helped me to think about life more often and be more intentional. Hope that continues.

      On a different note…. the “Active” posts entry has been taking longer and longer. For me, it’s now in the state of returning a Gateway Time Out. Can’t get in to report it so using this avenue to give you a heads up.
