Take a Break From Your Job Search

6 Ways to Maintain Your
Sanity While Looking for Work



They say looking for a job is a full-time job in itself, but that’s only partially true. Full-time jobs come with things like regular paychecks, benefits and a sense of pride and accomplishment. Compare that to the frustrating, tedious and mostly unrewarding task of finding a job, and it’s no wonder that some people stop looking for work entirely.

While only hard work and persistence (along with a little luck) will propel someone back into the workforce, job-seekers also need to remember to take a rest from searching every now and then, too. Breaks from searching for a job are just like breaks when you’re on the job — they raise your spirits, help you refocus and generally make you feel like a human again. What a concept, huh?

For the sake of your own mental health, you need to give yourself at least one breather a day if you’re pounding the virtual pavement looking for work. The good news? These breaks don’t have to be time-consuming or expensive to be effective. Here are 6 suggestions sure to help boost your spirits.

    These are great tips and not just for the unemployed job seeker. Even if you are working these are things we all should be doing. Even great for the stay at home moms, their working, but not getting a paycheck and probably feel the same way!
