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.

Review Cerave Foaming Cleanser si Cerave Moinsturing Lotion

 Buna fetelor, Astazi vreau sa va scriu despre un brand descoperit anul trecut care imi place foarte mult pentru partea de ingrijire a pielii : Cerave. Cerave este un brand cu produse create impreuna cu dermatologi, care au dezvoltat o gama de produse fara iritanti, bazate pe ceramide similare pielii pentru a oferi o varianta de ingrijire care reface bariera pielii si a oferi hidratare pentru o perioada mai lunga. Ceramidele formeaza bariera de protectia a pielii, mentin hidratarea si compun 50% din stratul de lipide. Gelul de curatare pentru piele normala si grasa Cerave (Foaming Cleanser) este produsul care mi se potriveste cel mai bine pentru a-mi curata tenul dimineata si seara. Contine trei ceramide esentiale, acid hialuronic, elimina excesul de sebum , curata usor si profund impuritatile si machiajul, nu blocheaza porii. Pentru machiajul ochilor, recomand totusi sa folosim apa micelara inainte. Formula este fara parfum deci este potrivita si pentru tenul sensibil.Mie im

Review: Cleanse & Care Eye Make-up Remover Boots No7

 Am demachiantul acesta de cateva luni si imi place sa-l folosesc , cred ca e demachiantul meu bifazic preferat.  Are o consistenta apoasa , usor uleioasa si curata bine pana si machiajul rezistent la apa. Testul suprem a fost cu un eyeliner waterproof de la Essence care trece foarte greu , insa cu acest demachiant nu am avut probleme.  Eu agit foarte bine flaconul, pun cateva pompite de demachiant pe o discheta si sterg machiajul ochilor .Nu imi agaseaza ochii , nu trebuie sa insist tare. Deseori l-am folosit si pentru ten si curata bine , pot sa spun ca imi simtean tenul usor hidratat de la uleiul continut.  Imi place si ca formula este fara parfum , testata oftalmologic, hipoalergenica, potrivita pentru ochii sensibili .  Singurul minus ar fi pretul mai mare decat al celorlalte demachiante bifazice folosite de mine, in jur de 35 de lei. Pompita este perfecta pentru dozarea produsului , cateva pompite imi sunt deajunse pentru ambii ochi.  Din cateva miscari s-a luat
