Work out everyday
This one is really easy but I think it's important, especially with a new gym membership, to focus on my health and create a routine. Since my days are open, it's nice to have somewhere I'm supposed be each day. When I do start working full time again I will have already carved out gym time in my day and it'll much easier to keep it up.
It's really easy to get into a funk during times like this so making sure your living space is clean and organized is just good for your mental health. Plus, now you can do all of those things you said you didn't have time for like organizing your closet or building a bookshelf.
It's easy to just sit around and watch TV all day when you aren't working and trust me, I'm guilty of some of it, I am now caught up on Girls thanks to my new free time. However, blogging, writing privately and going out and looking for places and things to photograph are some of the ways I make sure I stay inspired.
Luckily, since I saved before I quit my job I have the time to look for the right job, not just the first job. Although I have a recruiting agency actively working to find me a job it's important to keep my eyes open and hunt for those opportunities independently as well. I also look for freelance writing and blogging work separately, since for now that isn't a viable full-time job but something I always want to do on the side.
