Productivity Pals: A Freelancer's Best Friends For Happy & Productive Work Days

 

The life of a freelancer brings with it a multitude of benefits. Especially in the current climate. At a time 

when we’re al;l getting accustomed to the mixed blessings of working from home, managing our time 

effectively and getting the most out of every day, we’re all picking up (whether we’re aware of it or not) 

the skills that make for a happy and rewarding career in self-employment. Why wait around for crumbs 

from the corporate table when you can seek out your own opportunities on your own terms? Why 

endure the inequities of corporate wage repression when you can take your skills directly to your 

clientele? Why wait for an opportunity to be promoted when you can increase your income in direct 

proportion to your hard work and endeavor?

But, of course, if life as a freelancer were easy, everyone would be doing it. You’ll need to establish a 

framework for consistent productivity. And without the safety nets that most salaried people take for 

granted like sick pay, paid leave and a regular fixed income, your ability to live and eat will depend on 

remaining consistently productive. And while we’ve already talked about some essential tools for 

freelancers, we also need to talk about the freelancer’s friends. The productivity pals. The little things 

that could make a big difference in enjoying happier, healthier and more productive working days. For 

instance…


Your windows


Natural light is such a relatively tiny and simple thing. But it can make a huge difference to your working 

days. The presence of natural light can make you feel calmer, happier, more energised, more creative 

and better able to focus. Is there any wonder why it’s called the “number one office perk”? So do all that 

you can to keep them nice and clean and streak-free. What’s more, if your windows have a view of your 

garden you get the added benefit that comes from being able to see plants and trees. Which brings us 

to...


Your garden


Don’t make the mistake of trying to plough through your workdays as quickly as possible. Inevitably 

you’ll get tired, you’ll get frustrated and your work days will actually be longer. Instead, try and space 

short but meaningful breaks out throughout your day. And, where possible, you should take them away 

from your computer and desk. Spend a little time in the garden. Breathe fresh air and spend time with 

plants. Relax in privacy with Taxus Baccata by Hedgeplants Heijnen and other awesome hedge plants. 

Breathe the subtle perfumes of nature. Maybe even take a moment for some mindfulness meditation

You’ll return to your desk feeling happier, lighter and more rejuvenated.    


Your kitchen 


You can’t be consistently productive if you’re chomping down chocolate bars and chugging back coffee 

after coffee. All this will create is dips and spikes in your energy levels as you ride the caffeine and 

sugar high, only to come plummeting down later. Your kitchen could be your greatest aid in the battle 

for productivity when you use it to prepare healthy meals and snacks. Nuts and seeds, green and 

criciferous veggies and berries are all great foods for keeping your mind sharp and preventing the belly 

grumbles that can derail your productivity.

How to make perfect eyebrows

 Sprancenele mele sunt destul de rare si oricat am incercat sa le fac frumoase si dese nu am reusit. Chiar daca am un machiaj reusit, daca sprancele nu sunt accentuate, ceva lipseste si pare in neregula per total. Fardurile de sprancene nu sunt intocmai preferatele mele desi stiu ca multe fete le prefera. Astazi vreau sa va arat un gel pentru sprancene achizitionat recent, care-mi place foarte mult : DipBrow gel de la Anastasia Beverly Hills. Este un gel de sprancene pigmentat, are acoperire buna, eu aplic putin produs si pentru mine este suficient, este rezistent la apa - dupa cateva minute de la aplicare nu se mai ia usor, nu curge,  si ofera un aspect natural si mat sprancenelor. Vine in varianta mini si full size, eu am luat varianta mini si il folosesc de cateva luni, insa nu zilnic. Dar este genul de produs care rezista destul de mult. Periuta face aplicarea foarte usoara, poti chiar sa dai putin forma sprancenelor cu ea. Dar se poate achiziona separat orice perie de sprancene

3 Amazing Uses of CBD Oil

    Image by Oliver King via Pexels  CBD oil has gained enormous popularity in the recent past for its incredible health benefits. Today, this  beneficial compound is present in various products, ranging from cookies to nasal sprays to even  burgers. Given its numerous advantages, there is no doubt that the oil will keep growing in popularity in  the future. Here is all you need to know about CBD oil and the potential benefits you could reap by  using it.  What is CBD Oil?  CBD, which stands for cannabinoids, is a compound found in Cannabis. Unlike THC, which is the other  primary compound in Cannabis, CBD is not psychoactive. This means that it does not alter the working  of the brain to produce a “high” as THC does. It does, however, affect various body processes to alleviate  certain conditions. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that the cannabis plant has been used for   medicinal purposes since 750 B.C . Well, here are three key benefits you stand to gain by using CBD oil.   CB

Cum aleg lumanarile parfumate

 Buna frumoaselor, Astazi va vorbesc despre lumanarile mele parfumate preferate , Yankee Candle  . Fiind o amatoare de  lumanari parfumate , apropiatii stiu asta si de multe ori primesc si de la ei lumanari de la diverse branduri insa sincer va spun ca pana acum nici un brand nu m-a impresionat mai tare decat Yankee Candle. O fi din cauza mirosului persistent, a aromelor si formelor diverse pe care le au lumanarile lor sau poate le asociez eu cu amintiri frumoase pe care le am. Cand am musafiri, pe langa curatenie, gatit, mereu aprind si o lumanare cu o ora inainte sa ajunga, astfel incat prima impresie pe care o au cand intra in casa sa fie una placuta. Mereu am apreciat o casa cu un miros frumos. Sa stiti ca am observat de-a lungul anilor ca pana si casa/locuinta in care stai are un anumit miros, la fel si hainele. Si de multe ori cand simt un miros asemanator ma duce cu gandul la acele persoane.  Poate nu toti oamenii sunt asa dar eu sunt, fiind avida de parfumuri, mirosuri frumoase
