Daily Coping 22 Mar 2023

Today’s coping tip is to appreciate your hands and all the things they do for you.

I make a living with my hands. I type constantly, which is a big part of the work I do at Redgate. When I have a cut on a finger, as I did recently, it’s hard to type. That makes me much less productive, and lengthens my workday or workweek.

I also use my hands in job #2. I coach kids in volleyball and I’m regularly hitting balls in the air, which becomes painful or less controlled if my hands have issues. Or my shoulder, but that’s another post. I also take stats on paper and type totals into a spreadsheet, so yeah, hands are important.

Around the house, hands help me fix things on the ranch or play guitar.

I really appreciate my health and ability to use my hands to make life better.

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.
