I am a multilingual and hands-on contract consultant within the communications technology, information technology, security, energy, consumer electronics, broadcast communications, telecommunications, hospitality, and government sectors. I specialize in opening new markets for new companies with new products, system solutions and services and turn-around situations. My usual contracts are three to six months but that can vary. Essentially what I do is the same thing you would expect from a Senior Executive in Sales, Marketing, Business Development and/or Operations to do when opening a new market or territory but on a contract basis as opposed to standard employment.05/03/2017 #14 Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBeeI write about most any subject, humanitarian issues take a front seat with me.

Comments25/01/2017 #13 Karan Johnson#11 Hi Jared,
Thanks for the kind welcome message and sharing my posts in so many hives. Being a newbee, I didn’t even know that some of them existed. I’ll be checking them all out.
I’ve just had a look at Twilight and I wish I came across it before, as I would have tested it and mentioned it in my article.
I think sleep is a work in progress for most of us :)
A huge thank you again for taking the time to read my article and for sharing it.25/01/2017 #11 Jared 🐝 WieseHi Karan,
Great first post on beBee. Welcome!
First things first, for welcomes, I'm sharing in the beBee Interviews and Introductions hive.
I love life hacks! There's even a hive for that. Lots of great tips here...
For posture, I'm sharing to the Egoscue Method hive. I often get back pain from sitting at a desk all day. You might check it out. Covers the exercise and HIIT aspects to, hopefully.
For "me-me" time, have you heard of the Miracle Morning? Sharing there too. Gratitude and reflection are so key. Dang, could share in the Tony Robbins hive too!
I'm still working on sleep. But the blue light helps. f.lux seems similar to an app I've been using called Twilight.
Great stuff! Sorry for the delay. Thank you for sharing all this!20/01/2017 #7 Karan Johnson#3 Hi @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, it does take a deliberate daily effort to do non-business related things that make a difference to my health. I can only imagine the challenges that your husband faces managing his IT Consulting Company.
It’s great news that he can take holidays more often. A break can do wonders for recharging the batteries. Thank goodness for remote working and competent employees :). Yay, to him exercising at his home office! Please let me know how he gets on using f.lux.20/01/2017 #5 Karan JohnsonHi @Deb 🐝 Helfrich you’re so right about the ease that bad habits can be created. I must admit that I worked from my bed or sofa when I started freelancing. I think I was slightly rebelling against anything desk-related, as I spent years sitting in an office :).
Neck strain was a sure-fire sign that I needed to change my ways.
Like you, I now have a simple set-up (a desk and chair) that is much more ergonomic. So yes, good posture is absolutely a big part in keeping ourselves well when working from home.20/01/2017 #3 Lisa 🐝 GallagherGreat tips @Karan Johnson. I think it's cool that you recognized what is important and works for you in order to be highly functional without getting ill or having a break down! Because my husband runs his own IT Consulting Co. he doesn't have a choice many times with regards to determining good times to not be on his PC. I will have to relate to him about f.lux you wrote of above, that may help him when he has to be online late at night. He used to take small vacations every 2-3 years but now he can go and not worry because he can work remotely if an issue comes up and he's trained his employees to do much more than they were doing when hired. He related to me he's been taking breaks in his office and doing exercises (his home office, that is). Thanks for this!20/01/2017 #2 Gerald Hecht#1 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich If I understand what you are saying; I am an agreement..."practicing" optimal static and dynamic posture/movement through spacetime is so very vital for the ultimate ride of a lifetime; and it doesn't require any special "functional furniture"...Jacob hurt his his leg after climbing a ladder to heaven and getting ina scuffle with an angel/velvet rope bouncer.
All because instead of sleeping flat on the ground, he felt he had to rest his head on a "rock pillow"...a most unnatural sleeping position for proper oxygenation and avoiding disruptive episodes of apnea.20/01/2017 #1 Deb 🐝 HelfrichWellness while freelancing is crucial, @Karan Johnson, because it can be so easy to work in an unstructured manner and create bad habits.
Posture is a big thing to pay attention to, and it can be easy to use regular relaxing furniture with all our smart devices, but I know I am more focused and productive when I practice structural integrity while working. I have a completely bespoke set-up that almost guarantees good posture.
It is a bunch of random bits of furniture, but they are all at the appropriate heights to enable me to not force myself into strange contortionist positions. That is a very crucial aspect of wellness while working from home.
