These past few months have been quite interesting. I think the job hunting process makes you so grateful for the things that you have. I think often times living in NYC, a fast paced, environment I often feel like I’m not doing enough as I could be doing. There’s this constant battle within to be better. These few months I have learned the following:
1. De-clutter and keep it that way.
For me personally,organization really affects the amount of work and things I actually get accomplished. I recently went on a mini cleaning rampage. My mindset "shred everything,shred it all!Wait,I need that.." But seriously, I threw away so many magazines and receipts (I hate receipts *side eye*)
2.Change your attitude /perspective.
Your attitude also affects how much cleaning you actually get done. I always dreaded cleaning because I felt like it would take forever,but if you do a little each day while listening to music ( I prefer Spotify,Pandora or Grooveshark ) it will get done faster. Stay positive when job hunting,take frequent breaks and think of every rejection or new positing as an opportunity.
Be grateful for the things you have.You have good health, a roof over your head, a degree! There are so many people all over the world that would kill for these luxuries.
4. Change your scenery.
Travel, go for a walk,try something new.
5.Teach yourself something.
Learn a new hobby or skill. There are so many books out there
If you have a temporary job or some kind of income save some money you will be grateful for it later!
Did you complete a goal? Take yourself out for dessert,buy a new pair of shoes etc..
I am indeed a work in progress and I hope to also hold myself accountable the list mentioned above. What have you learned post graduating? How do you keep yourself occupied?
