Helping Myself and Others Cope During the Pandemic

Life during the pandemic has been a struggle at times. My company tracks our well being, and mine has definitely declined during the year. However, I've also been publishing a daily coping tip for a year at SQLServerCentral and following my own advice, which has helped. I want to share some of the tips, the techniques, and the view of how I've adjusted my life to work on my mental health and wellness.
