First, truly accept and understand that it is a difficult marketplace right now and you are not alone.
Work on a daily practice of meditation or blocking out time to get in a state of feeling good with the process. Meditation, yoga, exercise and experiences in nature are some of the ways that always help get you in the right mindset. Pick one and stick to it.
Create a job search strategy and be consistent and do a check in with yourself but if there is an opportunity to have an accountability partner line them up. But please be selective about someone that will help push you along.
