Deep breaths. Give yourself a day to let things process. When you feel you have the energy to get moving, first work on applying for unemployment, then portfolio, then network. Think of this time spent around these as a work day, start at 9-10 and wrap at 5-6. Allow yourself rest and time to decompress every day but make sure during the day you’re putting in what would have been working hours into your journey to your next opportunity.
