Leap tall buildings in a single bound. Unemployment often means more than losing your job. You may experience emotional and financial stress as a result of it. Worse, unemployment may influence relationships with family and friends. The shorter unemployment lasts, the less the stress will be.
To reduce stress, don't blame yourself. Losing a job is like any other loss. You may feel responsible even though the closing, layoff, or separation was not your fault.

Adjust your lifestyle. You may have to live on a reduced income for a while. Decide, with your family, what adjustments need to be made.

Take care of your body. Regular sleep, meals and exercise are very important.

Communicate. Discuss the situation. You don't have to carry the burden alone. Your family and friends are your support system.

Create a schedule. Organize your day around the work of finding a job, but set limits. Evenings and weekends should be for relaxation and recreation.

Start your new job. Looking for a job is a full-time job and the most important thing you can do right now. You are most attractive to other employers when you are first laid off. The best way to cope with unemployment is to succeed in finding another job as quickly as possible.
