When people hear I'm a freelancer, they hear unemployed; some don't understand what it is most of the time. Just ignore those people; being a freelancer means you have to communicate with new people every time after moving on from one project to another. It can give you great self-esteem in life.
Benefits that matter and outweighs all the hassles
- 👥 Ability to choose who you work with
- 🏋️♀️ Control of workload
- 👨💻 Work from anywhere
- 👪 Staying connected with friends and family
How can you make it work?
The pandemic has pushed many companies to facilitate work-from-home, but it is not for everybody. Many people struggle to work-from-home because they are used to working in a professional environment; adapting to an entirely different environment will be hard, which results in poor work performance.
If you are a freelancer or want to become one, you have to customize your work environment as mentioned below:
If you work-from-home most of the time
It would be best to design and optimize your work environment in a way that works for you. It might cost a few bucks, but it will help you in the long run.
This only works for a few people who are flexible to concentrate on any surroundings.
I sit in front of computers for more than 10 hours a day. My work-from-home setup has the following arrangement.
- 🌞 Bright Day Light - Preferably behind your PC or MacBook.
- ❄ Air Conditioning.
- 🚶♂️ A little bit of space or a Treadmill - for a walk.
- 🌱 Small Indoor Plants - for Air Purifying.
- 🥤 Plenty of water.
- 🎵 Google Home or Alexa - for music.
Like mine, you can facilitate and optimize your work environment to increase productivity.
