After about a year of freelancing, I came to the sudden realisation that I sat, on average, 14 hours a day (8 working, 6 watching t.v./YouTube/vegging). My back hurt, my hips were tight, I was getting headaches, and my waistline was slowly but surely growing. I came to the point that I had to say…

Planning a Home Office – Function and Comfort over Form

Planning a Home Office – Function and Comfort over Form

I know many people think that freelancers are out having lunch or working at cafes and travelling the world only working when we want to, but that’s not really the case.

Best Mouse for Carpal Tunnel – Pain-free scrolling all year

I’ve recently taken an interest in what plagues Freelancers on a daily basis. Some of the most popular responses I have received have been back/neck pain, headaches and wrist/hand pain.

Best Carpal Tunnel Keyboard – Pain-free typing all day

For many of us, typing and using our computer is how we pay the bills. I know for me as a translator and the writer of Healthy Freelancers, it certainly is.

Executive Office Solutions Laptop Stand – 1-year Review

Last year I finally took the plunge into being a full-time freelancer. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any of the equipment that I would need to work from home for 8 hours like, a standing desk, or chair. I guess all businesses have a start-up cost.
