There’s no doubt, being unemployed puts you in stressful and financially difficult situations.

Below are basic suggestions to make the transition into unemployment a little easier.

1.) Be sure to watch your self-esteem in unemployment.  A low self-esteem can lead to depression and sink a person to levels difficult to snap out of, limiting job prospects. Symptoms include: distancing from others, becoming a couch potato, eating too much, putting yourself down and being angry.

2.) Keep physically and mentally active. Exercise daily, this keeps your body healthy and endorphins active in your brain, making for a happier mood. Extra pounds can damage your physical health and also limit job prospects–weight discrimination exists.
