Good physical well being by staying active, regular exercise and good diet is essential in your job search. After all, if you are not physically able to find a job, you will be in the unemployment line for a long time. How do you ensure and maintain good physical well-being?

Stay active and be physically fit. I know there are some mornings when I don’t feel like getting up. After all I don’t have to be at a certain place at a certain time…..no time clock…..no boss to answer to…no employees waiting for me....no meetings to attend to…..no projects to finish….no deadlines. I realized, it was so easy to fall into a rut, walking around the house aimlessly in my pajama.

Here are some suggestions to take care of your physical well-being, staying active, and be engaged:

Find your gym membership card and use it. Now is the time to put it to good use.

Pop in your DVD player and follow along your favorite exercise video that motivates you to exercise such as The Biggest Loser's Jillian Michaels: Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism .

Join or form a walking, running or exercise group in your neighborhood.

Walk your dog to the park or around your neighborhood; it gives you an opportunity to be active and I am sure your dog will love you more for it.

Go to the beach or lake.

Hike with friends and family.

Play with your kids in your backyard.

Do your favorite activity that will take you out of the “moping” stage.

Meet a friend at a coffee shop.

Join a book club or Toastmaster.

Do scrap booking.

Take a yoga or Tai Chi class.

Take a Spanish class or a photography class at a local school.

Volunteer and support your favorite cause.

You get the idea, right? As you can see there are numerous ways for you to stay active. All it takes is a step or a leap and commitment on your part. One day at a time to get you out of a rut and take care of your physical well-being.

Eat right and balance your diet. When you are not working, it is so easy to let things go. I lost some of the structure I had followed when I was working. I sometimes get so engrossed in what I was doing that I missed having lunch. Or I find myself snacking a lot instead of having three healthy meals a day and snacking less throughout the whole day. Pay attention to what you eat; balance your diet with fruits and vegetables. Drink alcohol in moderation.

I believe in the old adage "your health is your wealth". If you are not getting enough sleep and not eating the right kinds of food, there are numerous complete multi-vitamin minerals complex that you can take such as the Beyond Tangy Tangerine. Beyond Tangy Tangerine® contains 115 fruits and vegetables and includes vitamins, minerals, plant minerals, phytonutrients and all-natural flavors. It is also Glycemic-friendly for diabetics and the sugar conscious. Check out below for more information on the health benefits of this product.


How much is your health worth to you?

See your doctor if you are now experiencing some physical discomforts or pains, such as headache, migraine, fatigue, loss or lack of sleep. It is not uncommon to have problem with sleeping, not having enough sleep or waking up in the middle of the night when you have so much going on your mind.

For the first few months after I got laid off, I struggled with waking up so early in the morning or in the middle of the night with thoughts racing in my mind almost to the point like I am having an anxiety attack. It has gotten much better for me after I recognized that I put undue and unreasonable pressure and deadline on myself. I learned to accept that there are things that are out of my control and there is nothing I can do to change that except change how I deal with it.

Take care of your physical well-being by staying active, being engaged, doing exercise, having a balanced diet is important. This is as crucial as taking care of your emotional well-being in your success to find employment. You have to be in the right frame of mind, physically able in order to land your next job.
