Today’s coping tip is to send an encouraging note to someone who needs a boost.
I met someone at a conference years ago and kept in touch. For some reason, I had a connection with this person and we’ve continued to lightly touch base every month or so.
I don’t know that he needs a boost, but I reached out and sent a message to say hi, to wish them well, and ask to have a chat, noting that I’m hoping they’re doing well. I got a very positive reaction, so I’m sure this was a boost for them.
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.
