It’s completely natural to feel discouraged, anxious and even depressed during unemployment.

Don’t allow those feelings to prevent you from moving forward, continue aiming towards your career goals.

Here are some suggestions to help you cope better:

1.) Ask what you might gain from this transition. Instead of thinking negatively, look for the positives. Unencumbered time lends plenty of opportunity to focus on what matters most to you, opening up new avenues of possibility.

2.) Keep your hope up and set goals to achieve, so you can see results, accomplishing something. Set goals weekly, and monthly, look at those goals daily to ensure you are on track.
