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 create a new playlist today of songs that make you happy.
I love music, and the last year has a number of coping tips along those lines. Variety is neat, and for today, I have to credit my wife. We have some similar tastes, but she likes a lot more R&B music and seems to search out new artists more often than I do.
She turned me on to PJ Morton last year, but this year I heard her playing something by Phonte, which I enjoyed. I decided to add a new playlist, inspired by her, with some his songs, a few by PJ, some by Rhapsody, and a couple others. As I hear her play music, I ask for the artist and I’ll listen to a few things, picking items to add to my playlist.
It’s a neat break from my normal routine, as well as a lovely reminder of when I heard the songs, with my wife.
