Just throwing this out there, I doubt it would do much good now, but for the future it's a must in my opinion.
Find a secondary trade and dedicate time to at least becoming proficient at it. I'm an Infrastructure engineer, but I've also picked up skills over
the years painting, doing demo and final clean. Those jobs are no where near as attractive or pleasant as my normal career but they are skills I can,
and have fallen back on when times get tough.
I get # for the viewpoint all the time, but no amount of going out, buying things or travelling can replace sinking that same time energy and money
into a good skill set.
When you get a new job, regardless of what it is, find time to learn something else, that's different from your current skill set and do what you can
to become proficient. If your out of work again you'll at least have something to fall back on even if it sucks until you find the job you want.
