First and foremost if you were laid off or let go because of downsizing, which is becoming one of the main reasons for job loss these days, don't start feeling like there was something you could do about it.

When an employer is told he has to lay people off due to cuts in the budget, remember he has to pick someone and it's not personal. As far as you know, the decision could have been so difficult for your employer that he had to put names in a box and pick the people to lay off that way.

Once you stop blaming yourself for the situation that you find yourself in it's time to sit down and go over your finances. You will now have a huge decrease in your income for some time now and so you need to immediately prepare yourself for this economic situation. The first thing you should do is to start cutting out all the unnecessary things in your life, things that are considered to be luxuries. For example those paid movie channels and feature enriched telephone services.

Make sure to sit down with your family and go over together with them with regards to what needs to be gotten rid of. And let them know that it is only for a temporary time and it's not forever. Another thing to note here is if the company gave you some sort of severance wages then you need to save that and not go around spending it like it's some sort of bonus or vacation money. This will help you survive a little easier while you are looking for work.

Make sure that you take care of yourself during this time of stress. More than ever, your body needs to be well taken care of. Make sure to get plenty of sleep, eat healthy and continue to exercise. Don't sit around the house and mope about your situation. Don't let unemployment win. You need to be in good physical and mental shape in order to do a job search and do it good.

Your mind needs to be taken care of as well as your spirit. Maybe not everyone has a belief in a higher power but for those who do, remember how important it is to keep your mind strong and feed your spirit. Go to church more, pray more and if your Bible has been neglected now is the time to get reacquainted with it. If you believe in God then have faith that he will find you a new path in your life that needs to be followed. Believe it or not, having faith will help you go a long way.

Don't carry this sadness and stress alone, be sure to be able to find a way to talk about it. Talk with your family members, talk to your friends, if you have to find a local group in your community that offers moral support for those who are unemployed. And make sure you let everyone you know that you are available and willing for whatever job opportunity that might arise.

Once you get your mind in order a very important thing you need to do is get yourself organized. Make yourself a daily schedule that you follow faithfully. You will need to organize the day around your job search, but make sure that there are limits set as well. Remember, looking for a job has now become literally your job so you need to act as if it were.
