How to Balance Your Freelance Life?

ACCEPT HELP FROM OTHERS

If you are married and your partner is not involved in her own work or business, then you can give her some of the non-essential tasks to handle such  as accounts, bills and other paperworks. It helps in freeing up yourself for other core tasks. And if you are single, you can also hire some assistant for these non-core tasks.

TIME MANAGEMENT

Doing full-time work with freelancing leaves basically no extra time for doing anything other than essential. So beside spending some time with family, you must make sure that the remaining times are judiciously used for freelancing work. To achieve this feat, you need the tools such as Client information database, Necessary software, Accounting, Rules-based automated Email system, Feed Reader etc.

HEALTH CARE

This is one of the most important aspect if you are to look after both the jobs. Falling indisposed just simply won’t help, in neither of the duties. Thus staying fit is a crucial consideration and following steps such as keeping off the junk food, consuming alcohol, caffeine and sugar in a controlled proportion, having adequate sleep, adhering to the healthy and clean food. Finally setting up a nice and relaxed home-office environment can help a lot.

KEEP BOTH THE JOBS SEPARATE

You may develop a incitement to work on your freelancing projects during your full time working our. However, generally it is not considered as a good idea as you may get caught and your boss may become easily offended. However, during the ‘break’ periods, checking emails and related feeds shouldn’t be a too much of a problem.

TAKE VACATIONS

It is vitally important to take vacations in between and do not overdo yourself with work. The idea is to spread the two or three weeks vacations that you get from your full-time job throughout the whole year. In this way you can recharge yourself frequently.

So, by following the above steps, it is likely that you will have a nice balance between two of your responsibility and thus excelling in both the fields.
