How to Cope Freelancing Loneliness

Many people admire the idea of becoming “your own boss” in a job that freelance professionals hold. Whether as an independent content strategist or graphics design contractor, they believe that a freelancer job is a dream come true. Many envy at the flexible working schedules, “relaxed” and “laid-back” work environment, and self-paced work. Unfortunately, not all people realised that freelancers have to endure loneliness and the lack of socialisation in their work.

Here are ways to mitigate the effects of loneliness:

1. Go Out From Time to Time
Seclusion from the people around you can be a bad thing even if allows you to concentrate on your work. It will eventually take its toll on you as frustration affects your productivity.

2. Go on a Date
Try organising a lunch date or coffee dates with your client or project collaborator in order to map out plans of a particular work or share ideas on how to accomplish a particular project.

3. Have a Good Routine
Aside from the social connections, some freelancers crave for the usual work structure that they are familiar in their previous jobs.

4. Get Connected
A freelancer in Australia works most of the time online so even if there are times that you are busy, you can always use the Internet to keep in touch with other people.

5. Develop Professional Contacts
It depends upon your field so consider the idea of connecting with local business groups and small business entrepreneurs for a start.
