January can seem like a very long month in the UK. The days are long and the nights are dark and the festivities from the holiday season are a distant memory. It can be a tough month to stay positive at the best of times, but if in addition you are currently unemployed then it can be even tougher. I am, therefore, writing this blog post as a way of checking out your current thoughts about your job search. Are the January blues affecting the way you feel about things right now? Do you feel like you may never get the break you want and need? Is it hard to keep yourself motivated to keep searching for a new role, when all you really want to do is go back to bed or slump in front of the TV? What strategies can you use to keep yourself going when things get tough? Over the next few days I’ll outline our suggestions. Today’s is:
• Get outside every day. Take a walk, get out in the air and re-energise yourself. You may even find that the change of scenery gives you new ideas relating to your job search – sometimes when you stop thinking about an issue, that’s when the answers arise.
Come back again tomorrow to find out our other suggestions.
