SUCCESSFULLY UNEMPLOYED: TIP 7

I have tip #7 ready to go for you! It's a fun one too!!! It is…

BRAIN FOOD

This has nothing to do with zombies, what I mean by 'brain food' is games, drawing, playing music, etc.

If you have a hobby that has been sitting on the back burner, move it to the front! For example, if you play the guitar but haven't actually played in a while, that's the kind of stuff I'm talking about.

In my case, I like to draw so my Drawn & Delivered card project and my Daily Intention series were great ways for me to dust that hobby off.

I know a lot of people like games and it helps them stay more alert and happy. My mom, for example, loves word searches, which is a great way for her to exercise her mind.

When you engage in an activity that you find great joy in and that challenges you, your brain will grow.

So don't for a second think that working on that sudoku, crossword or jigsaw puzzle is a total waste of time. The added bonus to playing games and solving puzzles is when you finish one you get a huge boost in confidence and when you are looking for a job, every ounce of confidence is valuable!

You know the expression 'if you don't use it, you loose it'? Well don't let that happen to your hobbies. OR don't let little experience keep you from trying. When you try something new new pathways are opened up in your mind.
