In an astonishing turn of events I can report that: getting enough sleep, drinking enough water, treating my asthma so I am getting enough oxygen and getting to the gym has a positive affect on my overall well-being.
But I think it isn't that simple. Because in the depths of the dump of Depression I can't want to do any of these things. So first I have to feel well enough to tackle one or all of these mundane problems and THEN I can take action.
I think the change in seasons is not easy. All three of the times that my Depression has been work-missing-bad it has been in the early spring. It is why I told people that I had reverse SAD for a while... I got Depressed when the sun started to show its brazen head a bit more. Shiny fool.
I am going to add a regular thing to my posts I think. So here's the format:
I was super tempted to follow each one of these with a conditon. I like this, but I don't like this about it. I like that, but only on Tuesdays. I like this part, but sometimes I don't. Ugh. Still I do feel a bit better body-wise so I suppose this is a decent activity.
