Daily Coping 24 Mar 2023–The Final Tip

Today’s coping tip is to discover the joy in the simple things in life.

This is the last coping tip for now. It’s been 3 years, and I hope you’ve enjoyed them.

I have really tried to enjoy simple, little things in my life and travels. A text from one of my kids. A short chat with an athlete I coach. A conversation at a SQL Saturday or other event. The chance to share a picture, or see one, of a friend.

Simple, little things make life interesting and wonderful.

When I finish a book I enjoy. A small success in a game. Learning a new song or lick on guitar, or even having a single song play well. A tasty meal. A laugh from my wife.

Looking at the world and enjoying little things helps me cope with the hard things, or the upsetting things. Remembering little joys, or noticing them, can reset my attitude or dampen other negative emotions.

Try appreciating and enjoying something small. I bet you feel happier in the rest of your life.

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.
