Unemployment Tips #unemployment tips

Anyone can lose their job in their lives. It happens and it will happen as we get deep into the Internet Age. Job Security is now an alien concept in these days of Outsourcing, Job Contracts, Automation and the Gig Economy. So what should you do when you eventually find yourself jobless.

  1. First, DON'T PANIC. Panic will just increase your anxiety levels and worries which can lead to DEPRESSION.
  2. STRATEGIZE: Plan your next steps. Plan ahead. Losing a job is not the end of your life.
  3. GET INTO YOUR HOBBIES: Remember those music lessons you ditched because of your job. What about Art? Now is the time to get involved in your hobbies.
  4. VOLUNTEER. Look at volunteering opportunities in your neighborhood or city. Get into one or two initiatives and keep yourself busy.
  5. EXERCISE. Keep yourself healthy by exercising. Exercise has been shown to as a Stress buster.
  6. NETWORK. Unemployment provides a good chance to get out there and go to conferences, meetups and events; things many cannot do once they are employed.
  7. Finally, TALK TO SOMEONE OR SHARE YOUR JOBLESSNESS EXPERIENCES. That way you will come to meet other people going through the same situation, network and share each others burden. This site is just a start.

So if you are feeling stressed out that you are just jobless don't agonize about it.

  #AmAtWork The beauty of Night shift. No endless distractions. Fewer people working in the block. No hooting out there. Enough space to maneuver since there are few people in the corridors. You can do so much at these hours even write a book or something if your employer allows it. The only problem is the pesky MOSQUITOES!!!...
