Weekend Quick Tip: How to Take a Day Off

One of the biggest benefits of being a freelance writer is that you run the show. There is no boss, no co-workers, and no office to report to. And while you have to work if you want to get paid, you must also take days off from time to time. Early in my career I found it difficult to take days off. Not only was I trying to get my career up and running, but I always felt like I was missing something when not at the computer. Soon enough I came to the conclusion that this was not the case, and in turn began to steal a vacation day here and there.

If you are a freelance writer and struggling with taking a vacation day, here are a couple of tips to keep in mind:

1. When you know you are taking off you should plan in advance. What does this mean? If I am taking a day off I will always work extra hard the day before to ensure that I am caught up across the board. This does a lot for my peace of mind, and it also ensures that my clients will not be left in the dark during my absence.

2. Always remember that a day off will make you a better freelance writer. Believe it or not, everybody needs to take time away from their job. Even a one day break will help refresh your mind and body. Simply put, there are benefits of taking a day off.

You would think that taking a day off would be an easy thing to do as a freelance writer. And while it is in theory, many find it difficult to drag themselves away from their desk.
