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 make uninterrupted time for your loved ones.
I have less of these now, with all the kids away from the house. However, my daughter has called a few times to chat. Often she takes time between classes, or shortly thereafter, but those are not always good times for me. I’m often working then.
However, I’ve made it a point to stop, not multi-task, and walk away from my desk when she calls. Focus on her, and enjoy the time.
