What are some things you've been doing to keep your spirits up during the job market? I've been doing all the usual self-care stuff (exercise, eating lots of veggies and avoiding sweets, sleeping at least 7 hours ,etc), but I'm curious if there's anything idiosyncratic to economics that's useful for us!

Are you in an academic dept? I highly recommend you commiserate with other job market candidates. Go for weekly lunch or happy hour or some form of group exercise. Not only will you also be able to share valuable info, they will be the *only* people who will  really understand what you are going thru. (Yes, they are technically your competition but I promise you it will increase your lifetime expected income.)
