7 steps to prevent freelancer burnout.
Victoria Heckstall is a veteran freelance business blogger, so she’s no stranger to recognizing when a burnout is about to happen: “I know I’m in burnout when I am just not motivated to work. I may experience a migraine and overall tiredness. When that happens, I try to focus on one of my other money making ventures. For example, if I’m burned out with business writing I’ll take time off from that and concentrate on my lifestyle blog or work on social media projects for my clients. I try to prevent getting burnt out by taking breaks throughout the day. I try not to sit at my computer for extended periods of time. I also try to go out and do something fun at least two weekends a month. I find that most of my burnouts come from constantly working and not taking the time to enjoy fresh air outside my home.”
