It seems as though everyone in my life suffers from anxiety, whether it is periodic or consistent, mild or severe. I’ve certainly dealt with it myself and one thing is for sure – when you’re hit with it, you’ll do just about anything to relieve your anxiety.
At those times when I (and everyone else I know) has had to deal with anxiety, first on the list are all the various forms of self-care and relaxation – soothing baths, relaxing music, a good book. Then comes exercise and yoga. Finally, cutting out caffeine and alcohol…or sometimes embracing them for short-term relief. And of course, various gimmicks that sometimes work for some people, like essential oils or cutting out dairy.
These methods are great sometimes, but often they’re just not enough. So the last time my husband and I experienced a bout of rather serious anxiety, we really dug around to find something even more effective.
And we actually did.

It took me a really, really long time to accept that site speed is one of the most important factors when it comes to increasing traffic to your blog. Google likes it, Pinterest likes it, users like it. Any longer than 3-4 seconds for your blog to load and (supposedly) your traffic starts dropping off by double digit percentage points.
That means that for a lot of us, increasing site speed could increase our traffic by double digit percentage points.
The pot gets even sweeter from there because most ads run smoother when your site loads faster, so if you’re on an ad network, you could also start seeing higher RPMs.
