Episode Info: Today on episode 28, Web Hosting Podcast.  Where have I been and what is going on with the podcast?  Have you taken the jump to WordPress 5 yet, if not then you are going to want to ensure you do a few things first.  Google Page Speed is up to some new tricks with images. My depression. You may have been wondering why there has not been an episode in a while.  It is time to talk about my depression and how I deal with it.Some things I do to try and reduce the effects of my depression, anxiety and panic attacks. If this helps even a single person get through their own depression then this will be worth it. Eat right.  I eat breakfast when I first get up and try to eat as healthy as possible for the rest of my meals.Get good sleep.  This is very critical for me.  If I don’t get a good deep sleep then I am possibly going to be a train wreak the next day.I work out regularly and have a schedule.  I find that by doing 30 minutes of exercise first thing in the morning, I can alleviate some of my anxiety. I make sure to bathe every day.  This may sound strange to put on a list, but it does help me.  It is part of my routine and schedule.  For me it signals the fresh start of a new day.I put on my shoes.  You may ask why this is its own entry.  I find that if I do not put my shoes on after my shower that I am more apt to sit around and not do much.  By putting on my shoes, I am unable to talk myself out of going for a walk or leaving the house.  It is a mind game I play with myself.  Shoes go on, ready for the day and anything it can throw at me.Dress for how you want to feel.  Another thing that has helped me is to dress how I want to feel.  I work from home most of the time, so you might imagine working in pajamas.  This can be great, but do it for a decade and you never leave your pajamas.  I have been known to actually dress up, sometimes I put on a shirt and tie. Watch something or read something uplifting. I recently started reading “Chicken soup for the fathers soul” when I am feeling depressed.  I also started watching a new TV show, that I would not normally watch, called New Amsterdam.  Then there is always Hogans Heroes.  The point is, find something that picks you up.Task yourself to learn something new every day.  I try and learn something new everyday.  It can be as simple as a new knot (don’t laugh knots are hard to master), or as difficult as getting a certificate for something.  I try and challenge myself with something that I know that I can ultimately complete.  Giving myself that win feeling and boosting my confidence just a bit.  It is important for me to make sure that I finish the task and to not set the difficulty too hard, I want to complete it after all.  By completing it, I get the “I have accomplished something” feeling that ultimately helps my moral and boosts me up.Check in with yourself.  This gets more into knowing your moods and your body and it is something that anyo...
