Today’s coping tip is to challenge negative thoughts and look for the upside.
I’m struggling with some negative thoughts outside of work. This year as I coach older girls, they have many other interests, they’re distracted, less committed, less motivated. Not all, but enough that it’s tough to build cohesion and makes the job of a coach harder.
The upside is that it’s an opportunity for me to learn how I might approach things differently. I’m not sure what to do here, but I recognize there’s an upside, even as I’m unsure and frustrated, even a little down.
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.
