Rest, Relax and Recharge

Hi Everyone

It it often all too easy when you are redundant and battling with high volumes of competition, to run yourself in to the ground.

You must use the festive period to rest, relax and recharge your energy levels.  This is crucial if you want to get a head start on the new year and hit the ground running.

So come Christmas Eve make sure you have written a list of all the things you need to do in the first two weeks of the new year to put you ahead of the game where job hunting is concerned.

Your list should include the following:

  1. Sign on dates and times.
  2. The opening hours of your job centre.
  3. Any appointments with an employment advisor.
  4. Any closing dates for jobs you have applied for.
  5. Date and time of any interviews you may have.
  6. In order to follow up on applications already sent, you need to make a note of the dates when those companies return from their holidays.
  7. Start dates for any courses you have agreed to undertake or for any voluntary work you agreed to do.  With a list of items you need to take with you.
  8. In order to keep control of your finances, note any dates of benefit payments and list any upcoming outgoings.
  9. Note anything else that you need to do.
Then put the list in a safe place which you will remember, relax, put your feet up and forget about it over Christmas.  This is your time to pamper yourself, to be kind yourself and enjoy the time spent with family and friends.  You deserve it.
You only get one life.  Make sure it’s the happiest one it can be.
Stay positive.
