Daily Coping 14 Mar 2023

Today’s coping tip is to notice how you speak to yourself and choose to use kind words.

I was downtown recently for a few days with my wife, staying in a hotel. We were busy, and we ended up eating our meals out, on the go, and sometimes in the convention center. We weren’t on a good schedule, and went too long without food at times. No gym time and a few too many drinks overall.

I started to chastise myself a few times for the diet and habits on the go, but I stopped and gave myself a break. Instead, I reminded myself to accept that taking care of myself was hard, this was only a couple days, and I should enjoy the time with my wife and friends.

Being kind to myself helped me cope with the change in routine.

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.
