A key part of surviving when you're unemployed is an obvious change in routine. If you're already going to the gym, great. If you're not, now's the time to add that to your daily schedule.

Once you get back to work, you'll want to keep going with this routine. Check out the link for other ideas about bouncing back after a job loss.
