I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral 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.
Today’s tip is to check in with someone who may be lonely or feeling anxious.
I check in with my Mom regularly, as she does live alone. However, she’s not usually anxious about things. On the other hand, I have had a friend that has struggled the last few years. Some health issues, some employment challenges, and then personal struggles. I’ve made it a point to periodically just reach out.
I did this again this week, just to see how they were feeling and if they were coping with life. I don’t think they’re lonely or anxious anymore, but it’s good to check.
