Some Like It Hot – Make Yourself Feel Good

Hi everyone

Redundancy can leave you feeling lost, lonely and hurt. Just like when you break up from a familiar relationship, it can be hard to find the motivation to go on with your life because of the pain you feel inside. You need to recognise this as part of the grieving process and start to think of ways that you can make yourself feel better. It is imperative you focus your mind on looking after you.

Write a list of a minimum of 10 things that make you smile, happy, laugh or simply feel good. It could be:

  • Taking a hot bath
  • Going for a walk
  • Speaking to a friend
  • Stroking a pet
  • Cooking a meal
  • Lighting candles around your home
  • Going to the cinema
  • Playing sport
  • Reading a book
  • Renting a movie at home
  • Eating a food treat

Whatever it is, make time for yourself to do as many of those things as often as possible, at least once a week. The more frequent you do things from your feel good list , the more you will feel positive about yourself, your life and your future.

Until next time, stay positive.

What is Beat Redundancy Blues?

 

Hi Everyone

What is Beat Redundancy Blues?

This is a question that I noticed is being persistently typed into search engines.

So to clarify, Beat Redundancy Blues is about:

  • How to stop yourself from feeling down about the fact that you have been made redundant
  • How to deal with the problems that you are faced with because of redundancy
  • How to deal with the grief you are experiencing
  • How to cope with the mixture of feeling and emotions that redundancy can bring with it
  • Feeling understood and supported
  • Creating a positive outlook
  • Fostering self-belief
  • Changing your mindset
  • Conquering your fears
  • Giving you the advice, hints, tips, information and knowledge needed to get back into work

In a nutshell it is about tackling any part of redundancy that makes you feel “blue”, in other words, sad, depressed, anxious, worried, alone, unhappy and the list could go on but I think you get the picture. It is about conquering those negative feeling, thoughts and emotions so that you no longer feel “blue” but instead are looking forward to a new future, with a focus on feeling better and enabling you to get back into work.

Do you have any comments, thoughts, or anything you would like to add to the list?

Stay positive
