Even if your job left you feeling stressed to the max, being both out of work and stuck at home presents a unique challenge. Here are a few tips for remaining balanced.
Submit your electronic unemployment forms and update your resume so that you can start applying again, and commit at least 2 hours a day to your job search. But, give yourself some well-deserved time to relax. This might mean crossing things off your Bucket List that you can do from home, sleeping in a few days a week, and taking the time you need to grieve the loss of your job—even if it wasn’t one you loved.
Find Meaning And Purpose
Searching for a job can feel like a full-time job and since options are limited at the moment, it’s even more discouraging. Even if your previous job did not provide meaning, it did provide purpose. This means you must have a plan and a bit of structure to your days so that you have something to get up and do. Mix in plenty of things you genuinely enjoy. This includes personal and professional Zoom calls, listening to podcasts, working your way through your reading list, volunteering, and activities that bring you joy.
Make every day the best day it can be!
