Freelancer Jonnie Hallman’s fresh perspectives after a 3-month sabbatical

His key learnings included:

  1. Establish routines that keep you focused and healthy. Join a gym and eat healthy.

  2. Have the confidence and restraint to say no to clients. Empower yourself with the ability to turn down offers—even good offers.

  3. Go at a reasonable pace to avoid burnout. Don’t be afraid to take things slowly.

  4. Recognize that your sanity comes at a monetary cost—less work means less income. But decide that it is worth it.
