Layoffs may be relatively common, but they’re never fun and rarely expected. As is the case with any negative situation, however, your experience with a layoff largely depends on how you react. You may not have deserved the layoff, but you definitely deserve a second chance at a successful career.
If you’ve just been laid off, don’t view it as a setback (easier said than done, I know). Instead, view this as an opportunity for a fresh start. Don’t be afraid to take a break for some self-care. For some people, this may mean a relaxing vacation. For others, it might mean stepping their workout schedule up. However you choose to bounce back, just make sure you’re taking care of yourself.
