Minimizing Job Search / Career Burnout
Take a weekend to yourself.
No housework, no networking, no thinking about indeed.com, nothing. Spend the weekend taking a class in something you know nothing about and that requires your full attention, like a floating meditation class, cooking, or painting. Or do something active that requires full attention, like visiting a rock climbing wall, hang gliding, ziplining, or hiking. Pick something that is so out of the ordinary for you that you have to really focus on it. No thinking about jobs, no talking about jobs, no emailing about jobs. And leave your phone at home. You will undoubtedly end the weekend much fresher, more focused, and more clear-headed.
You have probably heard this advice many times, but you need to recharge your battery. Remember that, just like the Tesla your neighbor just bought, you only have a certain range before you need to recharge.
And if you need extra motivation to actually follow through on this, think of it as giving yourself good fodder for answering the “what do you do in your free time?” interview question.
