JOB SEARCH TIP: It’s a holiday (Father’s Day). Those can be stressful. Take care.

22 Jun

Even under the best of circumstances, holidays can be stressful. Although Father’s Day happens to be happy for my family, this isn’t the case for everyone. For some of you, Father’s Day is more about difficult experiences and memories. If that is the case, I’m sending good thoughts.

It can be even more stressful if you don’t have a job.

We each deal with stress differently. For some of you it would be good to be (safely) around family and friends, and for others to get some alone time.

I find that accomplishing some task, even a modest one, feels good, and for others it’s better to have a “do nothing” day. Maybe this is a day when you find a way to help someone out who is in need, or maybe it’s a day when you ask someone for some needed help.

Do what’s right for you.

Hey, maybe the most expensive gifts aren’t necessary, and a home-cooked meal would be great instead of going out.

To the degree you can today, lean into family and friends who bring you joy and avoid those you don’t.

When you’re ready to resume your job search activities, there are twelve videos on the web site of my faith community. This content is free. Please also consider passing along:
