Keeping up appearances
In an April 6 New York Times article, Professor of Counseling Robert Chope commented on the importance of maintaining a job routine, even if a person doesn't have a job. Chope recounted the story of a lawyer who "commutes" to work each morning, but spends his days at a Starbucks. Chope said the routine can be an effective coping mechanism in tough times. "He gets dressed up, meets with colleagues, networks; he calls it his Western White House," Chope said. "I have encouraged him to keep his routine." Research by Professor of Psychology David Matsumoto was also cited in the article.
