1. Find a work-life balance

Many people quite don't understand. While you would spend hours working on your online venture, you need to maintain a healthy work-life balance. Even though working for yourself in the open-air café is more enjoyable than working in an office cubicle, but if you are putting in more than 8 hours a day, then you are not truly seeing the real benefits of nomad life.

    Many people who decide to become a digital nomad are coming off a previous job where they use to work in a set schedule. The best thing about nomad life is you have the option to choose which time of day you want to work. It depends, whether you are most productive in the morning, afternoon, evening, or late at night, you have to test out a few different periods and then decide which is right for you. This way, you will be able to concentrate on your tasks and will be able to complete them on time.

    3. Find your best office

      You prefer to work alongside fellow digital nomads, or you are a more efficient worker when you are by yourself in your apartment, you should test out a few venues for your work and decide where you feel comfortable while working.

      With so many digital hotspots cropping up around the world, you have the option to work alongside your colleagues if you want. These coworking spaces can be an excellent place to meet others who enjoy the digital nomad life. Many spots have pools and fitness studios, as well as snacks and coffee.

        Most of all, I agree that you should always study. It’s a big mistake to think that you know everything so well. Before buying and refitting my first van, I watched, read and listened to anything on this topic for about a year. I wrote everything down and then put this knowledge into practice. The Internet is simply created for self-development, if you use it correctly!

        Excellent recommendations! I confirm. For me, the biggest problem was the deterioration of nutrition. Due to the fact that there is no clear daily routine, I was so carried away with work that I ate out of time and spared time for cooking healthy food, being content with sandwiches. And after some time, this began to affect well-being and mood, and, accordingly, productivity. Therefore, I advise all novice nomads not to neglect their nutrition and pamper themselves with healthy salads and hot dishes and less coffee.

        This article is a very comprehensive one! Indeed, before changing your lifestyle and becoming a digital nomad, you need to understand what it is like. When others lead a digital nomad lifestyle it may seem like all rainbows and unicorns, but you don’t usually ask them how they achieved it and what mistakes they did on their way to success.
        It’s very important to follow these pieces of advice. I think the greatest advice is about finding work-life balance. As it is mentioned in the article, if you have your 9 to 6 job, you have exact time when you are supposed to work and you have no choice but do it. There is no one making you work when you are a digital nomad and at first it may prove to be quite the challenge.
