When The Job KillsWritten by Laurie Sheppard

What would you be giving up? Your current gripes may have caused you to lose touch with what benefits job held in first place. Use a list of positives and negatives to measure what you’d be giving up. Then, weigh those positives against risk of losing them or not replacing them with others benefits.
Will you jog or sprint to exit? Assess your pain quotient. No one else can do that for you. If you have resources and can cope with lack of security, then leave and devote yourself to downtime and introspection, to prepare for what’s next. However, if you have a low stress threshold and can’t tolerate uncertainty, then line up where you’re going before leaving. You’ll need patience to deal with either void or things remaining same.

Exercise and Its Effect on Your Job SearchWritten by Ryan Stewart
Continued from page 1
* Do your best to maintain a healthy diet. Try not to binge on junk food or eat at abnormal times through out day. If you ate at specific times when you were working, try to mirror that schedule during your job search. * If possible, try a new sport or exercise routine. When you step out of your comfort zone you increase your self-esteem, which in turn strengthens your optimism. * Leave your house at least once per day, every day. It is important that you do not isolate yourself as this can lead to depression. * If you are currently unemployed, allow yourself some time to reflect on circumstances that led to your unemployment. Be realistic and ask yourself what you might do differently if given chance. Once you have done that, move on. Never dwell on something too long. It is counterproductive.
When you are struggling with decision to get up and get moving, consider all networking opportunities you may uncover when you are at gym, on basketball court or in line at health food store. That is reason alone to focus on your physical health, but remember that you need to recognize this time as a period of change. Change can be a great chance for you to overhaul your approach to life. Exercise can, and will, give you energy to explore new opportunities and when you are healthy and have an upbeat mental attitude it comes across to everyone with whom you interact!
