5 Tips to Stay Motivated During Your Job Search

Consider implementing some of the following tips to help you stay motivated throughout your job search:

2. Exercise regularly. Staying (or getting) in shape with regular exercise will give you the energy you need to attack those daily tasks necessary to the job search.

3. Get enough sleep. In addition to regular exercise and healthy eating habits, getting enough sleep each night provides the daily rest and recharge needed to successfully find new work opportunities.

4. Learn something new every day. Schedule at least 15-30 minutes every day to learn something .
