Jobless = More Sex? Unemployment Should Have Perks Too.

There, I said it!

When approached with a publishing opportunity recently, I couldn't resist ... for anyone in business, who can really? The piece was with the well-known New York Post. The publishing proposal came during a time of stress, and rather than take my typical route when answering a simple question, I decided to take a different route ... a fun and playful approach, if you will.

The question asked of me was simply, "What's the best piece of advice you would give to someone who's out of work?"

Oneís first thoughts about unemployment are negative, am I right? Loss of income; how to address the gap within an interview; maybe job loss caused chip to individualís self-worth. Going through a recent career change with my husband, I realized first-hand that words, advice, and how-to's aren't always an anecdote to what the employed person is feeling. Unemployment is sometimes embarrassing, shameful ... and provide a whole slew of other negative feelings.

The question posed was easy enough. I could present typical advice; i.e. stay positive, work your network, go back to school. But I think jobseekers are tired of hearing suggestions for what they already know. Do you agree?

What I suggested was simply taking time to not only search for that new position, of course, but to also ďcounter the draining effects of job-search by having invigorating daytime sex with your significant other. Being unemployed should have perks too.Ē

For me, the suggestion was merely a way to make those unemployed smile or chuckle. Hopping between the sheets during the day is hardly routine advice given by today's job coaches, I'm sure you'll agree.

The more I thought about my quote, however, the more I thought "why not"?

"Being unemployed should have perks too."

Before you dismiss my candor advice, letís look at some obvious benefits ...

* First, an increased sex level will help offset the stress associated with being unemployed. Very true! With stress being linked to illness, simply donít make time for it. People increasingly mistake their identities with that of their jobs, and unfortunately, stress is a byproduct of our "earn, earn, earn" society.

* Second, an increased sex level will help rekindle your relationship which may have been neglected due to work stress or a previously demanding work schedule. Work weeks have turned into work weekends and work evenings. Why not look at unemployment as your way to patch up issues between you and your partner that have been festering for weeks, months, or years? Unemployment is the perfect time to look around and rediscover what is actually important.

* Third, and this is just a hunch [wink], but an increased sex level could make you feel and appear more confident during phone discussions, interviews, etc. Give it a shot. I'm sure it can't make things worse.
