Mental health and well being

In this episode we discuss how to look after your mental health and well being whilst working as a freelance journalist. We talk candidly to Jenny Stallard of newsletter and podcast Freelance Feels and gaming journalist Jake Tucker.

Jenny opens up about working through periods of low self-esteem and Jake talks us through his struggles with Asperger syndrome, depression and anxiety. We also discuss strategies for motivation and how being freelance can be a huge advantage when it comes to managing our mental load.
