Joie de vivre (n.): Hearty or carefree enjoyment of life.
You’re submitting dozens of applications everyday and you haven’t heard from any companies in a long time. The stress is taking a toll on your mind, body, and morale. Depression is setting in and you haven’t bathed in a week—STOP!
It’s time you take a break and enjoy a gift you get every day—your present. Yes, I mean right now!
Life should be spent smiling with loved ones, not frowning at job listings. Take control of your life and live! Remember the hobbies that you enjoyed when you were a kid… jigsaw puzzles… catch. Dust off that puzzle set and grab your glove. Isn’t it fun to remember your carefree days? No old hobbies? Pick up a new one that you always wanted to try—go fly a kite up to the highest height! Take a day off. Spend it playing around. I can guarantee you will be fully rejuvenated to tackle your job hunt the next day. Remember why you want to work—so you can play even harder.
