Sitting at the computer applying for jobs can put a strain on your body and mind. Do yourself and your job search some good by taking a break every hour or so. Set a reminder in your calendar or use a kitchen timer if you need to.
Here are a few simple things you can do:
Eyes - focus on something far away.
Hands and wrists - interlace your fingers and turn inside out, pushing away from yourself. Let your arms hang down and shake your hands loosely.
Neck - tilt your head forward, back and to each side several times.
Back - stretch your hands above your head and clasp them, then lean to each side several times. Put your hands on your hips and bend forward and backward several times.
Legs - lift each knee to your chest and hold several seconds; do this a few times. Lunge forward several times on each leg.
Mind - think about a pleasant memory, vacation or a loved one. Go outside and walk around the block!
Now you should be ready for a more productive hour of job search!
