Staying health during the job search- Part #2
Being let go from a job is difficult on many levels. We recommend following the advice of mental-health experts and people who have been through the job-hunt themselves to maintain emotional and physical health during what can be a prolonged job search.
Most of the advise is straightforward, but worthy of listing below.
- Exercise regularly– if you weren’t before, do it now to keep energy
- Maintain a regular schedule– especially when it comes to sleep
- Avoid things that dull your edge– like alcohol
- Don’t try to go it alone-connect regularly with other people, both in your professional and personal circles.
- Make yourself useful– consider volunteering your time for a cause
- Limit your exposure to television and the Internet.
- Seek out free services in your community-libraries, community health
- Focus on the things you can control: how many resumes you send out, how many phone calls you make and so on.
- Don’t put your eggs in one basket-broaden your career directions
- Think outside the box when considering your next job
- Count your blessings-make this a daily regimen
We’d like to add another suggestion to the list above, particularly if you have worked in any of the industries for whom we recruit.
- Give us a call- why go it alone?
