Feel Good Friday: Job Searching in the Fast Lane
Patrick Hoagland, from Arizona, was laid off from work unexpectedly earlier this year. He needed to find a job fast and wasn’t having much luck. As a result he decided to try something a little unorthodox, he printed up a whole bunch of resumes and started handing them out at one of the busiest intersections in his community. Read more about Patrick's creative exploits.
I like Paul’s story because it reminds us to change things up if something isn’t working. It shows us that it's ok to ask for help, as it shows strength and openness. It can be hard to ask for help but remember, you won’t always be the one needing help. One day you will be in a position to help others!
The idea of Feel Good Fridays started because we believe the simple things that bring a smile to our face, are some of the best things. Smiling and laughing has been proven to reduce stress in our lives! When we smile or laugh it releases neurotransmitters in our brain called endorphins, which are in charge of making us happy and helping to relieve stress.
