If you’re lucky enough to have avoided unemployment, you’re luckier than the almost 17.8 million people in India currently looking for work. But maybe your friends haven’t fared as well. When someone is jobless it is not easy for them to stay positive all the time because the person goes through a lot of uncertainty which can certainly wreck their mental peace. If you know someone who has lost his/her job recently or is unemployed for long, here’s how you can help them.
Listen to them patiently
Call them over to your place
Exercise with them
Make sure that they get enough sunlight
It is scientifically proven that a good dose of sunlight can improve the mood and also helps get better sleep. If possible encourage your friend to get out of house for a walk when the sun is all bright and shining.
Don’t judge them
You have to understand that their life is different now and it is not easy for them to go through this phase of uncertainty.
Acknowledge their feelings
They might not like to talk about it or open up easily, try and share your story when you felt uncertain about life and how you fought it.
Don’t be sad and sullen around the person
Humor can help anyone cope with a difficult situation! Help them to take things less seriously in this phase of life. This is not the end of life there is still a lot to enjoy in life!
