Today’s coping tip is set an intention to live with awareness and kindness.
One of the best things about these coping tips is that I have learned to be more deliberate. I think about things and I pay attention to the world. I also try to be polite and understanding.
My awareness is higher as I age, often because I realize how many things I don’t know and how many other ways people see the world. It’s often just easy for me to get along with others by being polite.
I also think kindness is far too often lost when we get stressed, frustrated, we’re online, or we’re thinking only of ourselves. I’m working to think of others more and being kind just because it’s a better way for me to live.
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.
