If you’ve followed my personal journey over the past few years, either through my email list, social media, or personally, you know how much my attitudes around mental health and self-care have changed since first getting diagnosed with chronic illnesses in 2015.
When I heard my friend Taru Bhargava was writing a post for the Quuu blog about “sanity for remote workers,” I *knew* I had to get involved and share some of the things I’ve learned. 😍
She has a ton of great tips and recommendations from other remote works and self-care advocates, including my own:
I treated my situation as though freelancing was my full-time job and self-care was my side hustle. I created systems and process for myself and invested in tools and software to help me follow through with them. I put nightly journaling on my calendar, and added taking my meds and checking in with my therapist between appointments to my project management tool.
