Getting that work life balance on the road


Hey there everyone,

I hope you are all well on this pretty awesome Saturday! 

Just another memoirs of a van lifer vlog here where I chat about what's happening on the road.

In the last few weeks I have spent working on realigning my work on the road and lucky for me I have been working on 'The Weary Travelers Guide to Self-Care' E-book which has helped immensely! BTW that is due for release in the next few weeks. :D Super excited! 

 

Hope you all enjoy your weekend.

Bathurst seems nice, are you in an RV Park or free-camping? There are a couple of nice places in your vicinity; Lake Wallace (Wallerawang) and Newnes (Lithgow) that are worth spending a few days at, particularly if you like watching birds.

 Hey there Possum,

yes Lake Wallace is one of my favourite places to stay. the birds there are wonderful to watch. Bathurst was a free RV park.  Someone wise recently told me I should go to Newnes also. Do you know of that is a free, paid or donation site? I have left that area fir a while but will go back at some point in a couple of months.

See; www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/camping-and-accommodation/campgrounds/newnes-campground

There is no charge for camping at Newnes although they do request a $6 booking fee.

I have sorted the work/life balance perfectly.
No work and all life
the hours are great but the pay is poor

I worked from home for a long time. I am a person who could cope. Nevertheless it is hard work & mentally challenging due to the isolation. But I could do the work of 3 people.

 

Suggestions. It would be extremely difficult in a small mobile space, but if you can, while working try to make you space feel like an office. Even Velcro (original is best) up a grey sheet to cover clutter to provide a more office like environment & put on a bit of office clothing, at least replace the pink bikini with a black one! Black clothing reduces reflections in the monitor.

 

The one main thing I did was always keep a clean clutter free space, it helped concentration a lot.

If absolutely critical I put a piece of grey cardboard on the desk.

If you need a grey space for editing on monitors or photography, these Dulux neutral colours work well. I put in a lot of effort to create a "greyroom". At the very least cover up highly saturated colours.

Hardware calibration for your monitor is really worth it.

Correct office attitude but wrong colour!

Thanks so much for the input. I don't know very much about the hardware calibration or grey space however will look those up. Yes I think I can create one of my little areas as the work space rather than using all of them. I recognise that external clutter clutters my mind big time! Haha yes definitely not a pink coloured girl!
