An article I recently read quoted a study that found that one out of every three entrepreneurs lives with depression. In this week’s episode of Podcast Answer Man, I share three types of depression that I have struggled with over the past ten years. I also share twelve tips for dealing with depression.

The twelve tips:
1. Spend more time in the Sun. (Philips goLITE BLU)
2. Go do something enjoyable.
3. Take a “guilt-free” break.
4. Watch what you are eating.
5. Get some exercise.
6. Become more socially connected.
7. Don’t spend time comparing yourself to others.
8. Take time to express gratitude.
9. Look for ways to help/serve others.
10. Know that you are not alone.
11. Remind yourself that this will pass.
12. Seek therapy if necessary.

    Great episode, Cliff! As someone who found their only option was to go out on their own this year, I suffer from depression from time to time wondering if I’m good enough and can I be successful enough in my IT consulting business to make ends meet. I’ve taken a few hits over the past few years and it hurts the ego tremendously, but all of us must stop, focus and really zero in on what’s important. It’s hard — and saying the words doesn’t make it even easier. But there is some comfort in knowing that even those that you look up to have the same issues and doubt that we all seem to suffer from.

  • Yep. Creating your own opportunities is a risky endeavor that requires a commitment to ongoing growth. Keeping the vision in our mind, we must always press on toward the goal ahead. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
