How to stay motivated while unemployed?

This is an issue that I'm struggling at this very moment. So here are some tips which will help you get through this period in your life.

Have a goal 
It's easier if you have a goal for example you are planning your future studies, like I'm now planning my master degree studies. Having a goal in your mind keeps you motivated and to go forward.

Have something to do
Applying for jobs is time consuming but you should definitely have something else to do while you are unemployed.I started course in the open university just in the case if my unemployment period continues for a long time. I  applied for the Fall semester but I'm planning to take at least one course in Spring semester as well. It's great to study in the open university because you can study anything you want. This is great time to really find out what you want to study in the future. I took Introduction to Political Science course because I thought I will do my master in this field. But now I have been thinking that maybe I should just continue my international business studies.

Make your perfect job plan
You should make a clear plan what kind of job you really want and write it all down.
What kind of company? Size of the company? What kind of business or organization? What you want your work days to be like?

Also why not start planning your own business like? 
As mentioned in the video below, you should take advantage of the time you have while you are unemployed. You can use the time for your business development.
I have started to plan my own business. I have still many things to do and lot to plan but I will try to really start the business before my next birthday. Now I have just some ideas and some planning done.

I found this incredibly inspiring video about being unemployed by Alex Ikonn. You should definitely watch it. He has also does other inspiring videos you can check them from here: https://www.youtube.com/user/AlexIkonn11
