If you think about it, many of our biggest stresses have to do with a lack of freedom.
Too much work, not enough time to do what you want, too many taxing responsibilities, etc.
Even the issue of not having enough money is a freedom problem. Because most of the reason you probably want more money is to achieve more freedom.
Let’s face it: freedom is awesome! It gives you time to do what you want in life, and go on all the adventures you’ve dreamed of.
That’s the kind of stuff we're all about here at uware. It’s why we bring on brands like Wandering Dog that represent a life of daring adventure.
So today, we’ll give you 4 ways you can gain more freedom in your life...
Figure Out Why You Want More Freedom
What would you do if you had the freedom to do whatever you wanted?
Would you travel? If so, where would you go?
Would you write a book? Paint a picture? Go backpacking through Europe? The possibilities are endless.
Whatever the case, you should think about this, as it’ll uncover why you truly want more freedom. And this will be a powerful motivator that will help you eventually attain that freedom.
Cut Back on Unnecessary Expenses
We all have expenses that we don’t necessarily need.
That monthly recurring service you barely use anymore...that high cable bill when you just end up watching Netflix anyway…
You know the expenses we’re talking about.
Figure out what these expenses are and start cutting them out. Even if you can save $100 or $200 a month, that can add up to an extra month of living expenses (and freedom) over a year’s time.
Heck, perhaps you can even move into a cheaper apartment and cut your rent in half, which will give you even more financial runway.
Consider Trying for a Remote-Work Agreement
Few things rob our freedom more than having to go in and out of an office every day…
The commute, the actual time spent in the office, the 5 o’clock traffic…
It wastes your valuable time.
But if you can negotiate a remote-work agreement, you can get a lot of that time back. What’s more, you can work while you travel, get more focused work done, and work from wherever you want.
Remote workers are becoming more and more common today - and more and more workers are negotiating remote work agreements every year. So, it’s not as far-fetched as you may think.
Start a Side-Hustle
It’s never been easier to start an online “side-hustle” that brings you $1k or more every month.
Social media consulting, copywriting, dropshipping, etc. There are so many ways to start making money online.
Just think of what an extra $1k per month could mean to you…
Heck, that’d be more than enough to live in a buzzing city filled with location-independent entrepreneurs like Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam!
Wrapping Up How to Gain More Freedom in Your Life…
Freedom is amazing. There’s no better feeling than controlling your time and getting to decide exactly how you want to spend your days (and nights!).
