Related6 Behaviors That Can Hurt Your Chances At Getting The Job

#1. Find things you can get excited about.

What gets you excited? Think about your hobbies and interests. What do you do for fun in your life?

Make sure you dedicate at least one day a week doing what you love. This will help you get your mind off of the negative and focus on the things you enjoy.

#2. Surround yourself with people who inspire you.

When you’re feeling down in the dumps, it’s important to surround yourself with positivity. Make an effort to meet up with positive influences in your life – your family, friends, significant others, and mentors. These people will help you stay on track.

Also, surround yourself with your “virtual mentors,” people who inspire you from afar. Whether they’re celebrities, successful business people, or authors, keep them “nearby.” Read their books or showcase their inspirational quotes. A little inspiration can go a long way.

#3. Help others.

Helping makes us feel good! If you’re feeling bad about yourself, see how you can help someone else. Volunteer. Pay it forward. Give back somehow. This will recharge your system and get you in a good mood.

#4. Get some exercise.

You’ve got to expel that negative energy! Make sure you take time to exercise daily. Take a walk. Go for a run. Do yoga. Lift weights. Just get GOING! Exercising equal endorphins and endorphins make you happy.

#5. Give yourself structure.

Not having structure can make your life seem unstable. Create a plan for your week on Sunday nights. Have a plan and stick with it. You’ll feel accomplished.
