Weekend Quick Tip: Avoid Working on Weekends

As a freelance writer it is easy to fall into the trap of working on the weekends. This is something that I did in the past, and it was not fun. After all, you need a break just like everybody else. There are times when you have no choice but to work on the weekend, but you should do whatever you can to avoid this. If you don’t give yourself time off you are going to hit a wall, both physically and mentally.

The best way to avoid working on weekends is to complete your projects Monday through Friday. This can be done by having a weekly schedule as well as a daily to-do list. As you move through your list you will get a better feel for what needs done before the weekend comes. In turn, you can adjust your weekday schedule to suit your workload.

Do you ever work on the weekends? I get this question a lot. The answer is yes. But you should know that this is not a regular occurrence. In other words, I don’t work every weekend day of the month. If I do work on Saturday or Sunday I like to make sure that it is not on an extensive project that needs tons of time. Instead, I prefer to work on smaller projects that don’t take up a lot of time and don’t need completed in one sitting.

Staying away from your freelance writing workload on the weekends can be difficult. But if you get your work done during the week and realize that your body needs time to rest, you should have no problem saying goodbye to your computer when the weekend arrives.
