How to Protect Your Mental Health at Work as a Freelancer - Voquent

Freelancing can be hard work, especially where personal well-being is concerned; here is our advice to help you navigate mental challenges.

In today’s rapidly changing professional landscape, more individuals are seeking the freedom and flexibility of freelance work.

While freelancing offers countless advantages, such as independent decision-making and a flexible schedule, it is not without its challenges.

One aspect that often goes unexplored is the impact of freelancing on mental health.

Voice actors are typically freelancers; plying your personal trade as a full-time venture can have unforeseen implications for your mental health. Walking the line between work time and free time can become difficult, especially when working from home.

Voquent has partnered with Rehab Recovery to explore the various factors that contribute to mental health issues among freelancers. Read as they provide valuable insights into methods of maintaining positive well-being in this unique working environment.
