Self-Care for Freelancers During Stressful Times

We live in unstable times. The world is bursting into panic, anger, and separation. The pandemic, protests, global conflicts, economic crisis. It’s enough for a person to feel confused and scared. As a freelancer, I feel the impact even more because there’s so much uncertainty. We don’t have as many financial and social guarantees as our full-time in-house counterparts. Mass media isn’t helping either. Consuming information makes me more tired, angry, and disoriented. On top of all the havoc, put…

Laikas atsikratyti žemyn tempiančių santykių

Pasauliui trumpam sustojus yra puiki proga atsigręžti į save – kas mūsų gyvenime einasi gera linkme, o ką vertėtų keisti. Kad ir kaip kartais giliai žiūrėtume į save, pamirštame, kad didelę mūsų gyvenimo dalį sudaro kiti žmonės. Kartais to net nesuprasdami gyvename toksiškuose santykiuose – mus supančių žmonių veiksmai daro įtaką mūsų savijautai ir jausmams.  Esame nuolatos apsupti draugų, šeimos, kolegų, partnerių ir prašalaičių. Jų laikomės įsikibę, net jei jie ir nėra geriausia kas nutiko gyvenime. Bet laikomės, nes kas,…

Meilė sau, tai ne vienas apsilankymas pas kirpėją – tai gyvenimo būdas

Kiek save pamenu, meilė sau ir rūpestis asmenine gerove man būdavo svetimi. Dėl to ir mano santykis su savimi buvo susvetimėjęs – jei kas nesigaudavo ar suklysdavau, bausdavau save lyg aršiausią priešę. Bausdavau ne tik bjauriais žodžiais ir negatyviomis mintis, tai buvo gyvenimo būdas – spausti iš savęs kiek galima daugiau, kol kūnas ir galva nebepakelia viso svorio.  Meilė sau, tai ryšys su aplinka, žmonėmis, darbu ir svarbiausia – savimi Pamenu dienas, kuomet dirbdavau iki išnaktų, tuomet nuvargusia galva ir…

Staying Sane When Working as a Freelancer

Recently, I was talking with a woman who works as a freelance graphic designer. At the same time, she is finishing her studies. As a fellow freelancer, I was excited to hear more about her daily routine and some working tricks. But she told me that the freelancing thing is temporary, and when I asked why, because she’s so young and already has a decent experience in her niche, she admitted that it’s too lonely for her. And it’s not…

How Can Daily Planning Contribute to Better Mental Health?

Before starting freelancing full-time, I read a lot of articles from other freelancers. Most of them expressed a similar concern — lack of self-control and planning routine. After digging deeper into the problem, I discovered that the unset schedule was one of the main reasons why self-employed workers quit freelance work and would go back to full-time in-house employment. The fact scared me, and I was wondering whether it’s the unavoidable truth for all freelancers. Almost a year passed, and…

5 Time Management Tips for Freelancers

In the previous article, I discussed why freelancing is beneficial for your career. Today I want to dig deeper into the major problem that most freelance workers face – time management.  Time and task management is an essential part of our daily lives because, without proper plan and control, we would forget tasks, meetings, doctor appointments, and other day-to-day chores. However, when you are a freelancer, the whole time management thing gets more complicated than a few notifications.  As someone…
