Take a Break From Your Job Search

3. Tackle One Minor Household Project

One of the most important parts of an effective job search is staying organized. However, if the environment around you is chaotic, your state of mind will be, too.

Cleaning your desk, washing those dishes in the sink or making your bed are all good ways to take a break while at the same time staying productive. Plus, a well-ordered workspace will help keep you focused once you go back to looking for employment.

Making your living space look better will make you feel better, but remember — this is supposed to be a short break from your job search. Don’t procrastinate and start some gargantuan project like cleaning out the garage or painting your living room. Remember, we said “one minor household project,” not “several major household projects.”
