The weather is beautiful but you have freelance work. We asked a freelancer for productivity tips to help survive the summer.
I hate the summer. (There, I said it.) I hate being too warm, I hate how easily I sunburn, I hate how trees, grass, weeds, and whatever-else-exists on this earth seem like they’re trying to kill me, and I hate feeling pressured to go outside. Especially when I have work to do.
Because I love working. Freelancing is what keeps me afloat in moments of anxiety, over-tiredness, or when I need to distract from real life. When it’s sunny out and my friends want me to hang out with them, it’s a lot harder to deflect invitations, and stay inside the way I normally do in the fall and winter.
