ENGAGE IN PLEASANT ACTIVITIES
Make fun activities part of your daily routine
Although most of your time might be focused on beefing up your resume and sending out job applications, don’t forget to make time for some fun too! These pleasant activities can range from going for a quick run, starting a new craft project or even having an online games night with your friends over Zoom.
Fun activities are incredibly beneficial as they:
- Induce a more positive mood
- Distract you from dwelling over things you have no control over
- Gives you something to look forward to, after a long day of job searching
- Can help you feel more hopeful about the future
Keep yourself meaningfully occupied
Research suggests that having an organized schedule can increase your life satisfaction and general well-being. Hence it is not just about engaging in activities but to have a structure time for job search, learn and play. Occupying your time meaningfully to learn something can help when job interviewers ask about what you have been doing when job hunting.
