The 9 Things You Must Do Now If You’re Out Of Work
On Day 1: Cry, get mad, feel sorry for yourself, rant to your friends. If you’re an emotional eater, binge on your favorite foods for a day. Whatever you need to do to get over the emotional hurt, shock, feelings of unfairness, or fear, do it! But do it for just 1 day.
On Day 2: Have fun! Don’t get caught up in thoughts of doom, gloom or anger. If you find yourself slipping into that, re-read #1. Spend the day doing whatever it is that you have wanted to do but didn’t have the time because of work. It can be anything from spending a day with your family, getting together with your friends, or learning something new that you’ve always wanted to try. Whatever it is that will give your mind a rest in the spirit of play and involves people, do it! Don’t give in to negative thoughts! The result of this exercise is to re-charge your emotional batteries. If you’ve already been out of work for a while, then you can either include this step or just skip to #3.
