Stress has some serious health ramifications so sometimes you need to just take a step back and relieve the stress. Here are some ways to relax and not let the stress of the job search get to you:
•Take a nap

•Turn up the music loud, sing and dance along
•Try a focused meditation
•Play a board game or do a puzzle
