Chances are that you answered “yes.” Studies show that up to one third of all adults don’t get enough sleep. If you’re a freelancer, chances are good that you’re among the sleepless.
The problems associated with sleeplessness can be severe. They range from overeating to poor driving to irritability. A sleepless freelancer is also more likely to make mistakes in his or her work.
In this post, I outline ten helpful tips to help you get a better night’s rest.
Freelancers are busy. We wear a lot of hats and most of the time we are also juggling more than one project.
The problem is that this can lead to an awful lot of stress if we’re not careful. And too much stress can be the enemy of productivity. The key to reducing stress is relaxation.
That’s why I’ve written this post that includes over forty things that freelancers can do to relax. Some of these will take a few minutes. Others will take a few days. Some may even take a few weeks. But if you’re stressed, it’s worth trying one or more of these ideas.
Freelancing is not just a job, it’s a lifestyle.
You’ve probably heard that statement before, and in a sense, it’s true. But lifestyle or not, one of the biggest struggles that freelancers face is balancing work and life.
This is ironic, because the search for work/life balance is one of the primary motivators that drives many to freelancing.
Is work/life balance really possible? The answer is yes–usually, but not perfectly and not always. A balanced life takes some planning.
And of course, there will be some times when you feel that your life is more balanced and other times when you feel that it is less balanced. That’s just normal.
In this post, I’ll provide some tips to help you to integrate your freelancing career into the rest of your life. With a bit of work on your part, you should be on your way to finding a better work/life balance.
The growing number of freelancers seems to be a hot topic. Nearly every week I read a news story about how there are more freelancers than ever before (although nobody seems to know for sure exactly how many there are).
What most of those articles don’t mention is that a sizable number of freelancers are part-time freelancers. That means that they have another job and freelance on the side or that they work less than a full workweek by choice. (A full workweek is usually defined as thirty hours.)
In this post, we’ll explore the world of part-time freelancing. We’ll look at some of the reasons people freelance part-time and explore some of the unique challenges they face. Plus, I’ll incorporate tips and advice from five freelancers who work part-time.
