Coming Back From a Job Loss

By and Tuesday, 06 October 2020 12:05 PM Current | Bio | Archive

According to Department of Labor information, the September 10 advance unadjusted number of people claiming unemployment insurance benefits in state programs totaled 13,197,059.

That shows pretty clearly that a lot of people are contending with the financial hardships of job loss and the emotional turmoil it causes.

Psychology Today wants you to know that you'll bounce back best if your first step is to let it all out.

They suggest you talk or write about it. Have a good cry. Lick your wounds. Accept hugs. Then you’ll be ready to deal with the challenges and search for a new job.

A study published by the Journal of Employment Counseling stresses how important it is to take charge of your emotions so you can fend off the depression that comes from the loss of social contact and sense of self-worth that work provides.

You can do that by making sure you get physical exercise, create a structure to your day (up at the same time daily), have a good spot to work from, and spend a predetermined amount of time doing your job search, working on your resume, and taking classes to expand your qualifications.

And don't shy away from getting help: The National Employment Law Project offers COVID-19 resources for unemployed and frontline workers at www.nelp.org.

You can also check out "Disaster Financial Assistance for Workers and Small Business Owners" at USA.gov.

These are tough times, but you can optimize how you feel and deal.
