Do something different!

Hi everyone

When you are redundant, it can be easy to get into a rut.  Do something different to energize yourself.

  • Walk a different way into town.
  • If you usually have a bath, have a shower instead, or vice versa.
  • If you write with your right hand, then try to write with your left.
  • If you usually go to the pub to meet your friends, try meeting them in a cafe instead.
  • If you normally sit and watch TV in the evenings, then go for a walk.

It’s all about giving yourself something other than the norm to think about, to revitalise a tired routine and to see things from a different perspective.

If you enjoy walking for charity or you have never tried it before, there is no better time than when you are redundant to give it a go.

Why not take part in the first ever Discovery Trail Challenge on Saturday 28th of July 2012, in aid of the Devon Air Ambulance Trust.  www.daat.org  This will be your opportunity to walk the entire length of the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail, that is 25 miles, whilst raising money for a good cause.

The event will start between 8am and 9am and offer walkers the chance to complete one of the most varied and rewarding routes of the South West.  They are asking for a £10 donation to join the walk, which will cover all charges regarding the ferry crossing, transport at the end of the walk back to the start, refreshments at 8 points along the way, First Aid cover and a little towards the cost of administration.

For more information regarding the walk there are various contact methods as outlined below:

Cornwall Council Tamar Valley AONB, Tamar Valley Centre, Cemetery Road, Drakewalls, Gunnislake, Cornwall, PL18 9FE.

About Quirky Books

Published Author of BREAK THROUGH THE BARRIERS OF REDUNDANCY TO GET BACK INTO WORK - AN A-Z 'HOW TO' GUIDE and How To Get Started With Twitter For Absolute Beginners, A Step-By-Step Guide. In a nutshell, my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book is a complete A-Z system for getting back into work, and a comprehensive guide about how you can recover from the devastating effects of redundancy to live the life of your dreams. Although this book is predominantly aimed at redundant workers, the content will prove equally useful to jobseekers or anyone looking to change careers for whatever reason. This book provides eighty benefits and covers twenty-six aspects of redundancy. It’s a system because each of the chapters is broken down into ‘5 components of redundancy’. You need to master all components in order to give you the best chance of success at getting back into work. Because this book takes a holistic view of redundancy, one of the key elements to master first of all is wellbeing skills, before progressing through exploring what options are available to you and later, learning the practical job skills. This book is different because it does not just focus on one element of redundancy, but on the many barriers you need to conquer if you are to successfully get back into work, I show you how to deal with the inner trauma and turmoil of being made redundant (health and wellbeing skills), before focusing on the practical elements such as job skills, and deciding on your future path. I have worked in management roles for seven years. Part of my management duties entailed interviewing, recruiting, training and coaching staff and I took part in every aspect of the recruitment process from placing the advert to completing staff inductions and training. I have also experienced the other side of the recruitment process, when I was applying for work and being interviewed for jobs whilst redundant. I have been made redundant twice and each time managed to successfully work my way back up the career ladder. It is from experience that I have gained insight into both points of view and I am able to help others. This book is the first Quirky Book that I published and it's under my own imprint of Quirky Books. It's unique and groundbreaking because it combines two genres, an A-Z Guide with a How To book. Each of its A-Z chapters is about an element of redundancy, and within each chapter it explains how to do things related to that element to break though your barriers of redundancy and beat your redundancy blues. That’s what makes it a quirky book.
