Searching for a job can be stressful and frustrating, which in turn can you make you feel overwhelmed. Stress and anxiety can cause physical and mental side effects, which can negatively impact your progress. It is very critical for job-seekers to try and eliminate as much job-hunting anxiety as they can, for their own mental well-being as well as for the sake of professional success.

• Adjust your mindset
Job applications are a great approach, if you are searching for a new job on an urgent basis. In every application, submitting your resume will bring you one step closer to landing a job.
• Set goals and deadlines
Job-hunting can feel extremely daunting and overwhelming when your only focus is to find employment. This can negatively impact your motivation to begin your search and can also lead you to feel discouraged.
• Take breaks
It is easy to get stressed and frustrated if you are continuously spending too much time on job searches. You have to take some break in between searching for jobs, go outside, spending with your friends and do what makes you feel happy and de-stress.
• Reward your successes
Job searching is not easy, try to focus on your achievements. Once your application has been submitted take a step back and applaud yourself. Every milestone counts.
