Paula Pant, who writes the Afford Anything blog, has been a freelance writer since 2010. Recently she posted some excellent advice on Instagram:
The time that you spend going to the gym, practicing yoga, writing in your journal or connecting with a close friend on the phone is not time that you are spending away from work.
Self-care is part of your work.
Even laptops need to recharge.
Paula is a very wise woman. Freelancers would do well to listen to her advice about self-care – especially at this time of year.
