Back in my school days, I was obsessed with world travel. The Discovery Channel was my go-to channel whenever I wanted to travel. With time college started and got over, but I was fixated on my dream of world travel without worrying about anything. Soon I started working as a content writer in a company. It was a remote job, which meant I could work, get paid, and travel, all at the same time. I was liking it, and before I knew it, I became a digital nomad, and it became my lifestyle.

Here I am, telling you about the digital nomad lifestyle that I am living and why you must adopt the same.

People often emailed me and asked, “Hey man, how can I become like you and live the digital nomad lifestyle?”

This question is similar to “How can I become an office worker?”

Don’t take me wrong, but both digital nomadic and office lifestyles are very broad terms. What we know about them is only the outside part. Here I will tell you what is inside.

On the inside, it is a Job and a way to earn money.

Digital Nomad Lifestyle, What Is It Actually?

A digital nomad is one who makes a living remotely through the internet, typically while traveling and living nomadically. Because of the remote nature of the job, digital nomads have the freedom and additional flexibility to operate from anywhere as long as there is a Wi-Fi connection.

Sounds fascinating right?

The truth behind this term is that a digital nomad is not a job but a lifestyle that you choose to live.

To be a digital nomad, you must first figure out how to make money. The nomadic component and the money/work component are typically two distinct things. And in general, finding work that allows for a nomadic lifestyle requires the same procedure as finding a job that involves a routine 9-5 trip to the office:

  • Examine your expertise, abilities, interests, and education to determine which jobs are a good fit for what you have to offer.
  • Limit your search to professions that intrigue you and offer benefits that meet your needs.
  • Instead of trying to get hired by a company that offers that job for some, you could start your own business or freelance opportunity.

Again, even if you strive to be an office worker or become a digital nomad, you will need a profession or an income source that will lead you to live that lifestyle and work in that environment.

Now, I hope you must have made up your mind about being a digital nomad. It’s time to give you some tips about a digital nomad lifestyle.

Digital Nomad Tips, From a Digital Nomad Himself!

Being a digital nomad for over a couple of years, I have gained a bit of experience in the field. Here I will mention certain tips that will help you reach and live this lifestyle.

Have all the Work lined up before you head out on an adventure of a lifetime

Contrary to popular opinion, you should not simply quit your job and start living as a digital nomad. While it may be enticing to throw caution to the wind and dive headfirst into this new and interesting experience, it is far wiser to begin before you leave home.

Typically, it takes several months for a business to start earning (and blogs can take years). I wouldn't recommend starting your new digital nomad career while abroad unless you have a lot of money to live off of. Do it first at home. Create a client list so that by the moment you leave, you'll be making money. That way, you will feel no stress yourself when you try launching a business and set your foot abroad at the same time.

Balancing Work and Travel

One of the most difficult aspects of working remotely abroad is maintaining a sense of balance. It's easy to spend more time traveling and having fun in a new country but not enough time to work. New foods, new attractions, and new people can all tempt you to spend too much time away from work.

Set strict boundaries for when you work and when you go exploring to ensure you get your work done. The best digital nomadic people keep strict schedules to ensure they complete all tasks on time. Perhaps you devote a whole day to one or the other; perhaps you divide each day. Stick to the strategy you've chosen. It will make sure that you complete your work while also having the opportunity to enjoy the destination.

Travel Slow, At Your Own Pace

Slow travel is the best way to balance work and travel while getting to know attractions in exquisite detail. Don't travel to a new city every day. Even if you move cities once a week, don't do it every time. Consider spending a few weeks (if not months) in a single location.

That way, you'll have more than enough time to develop fruitful habits and routines even while getting a thorough understanding of the location you're visiting. You'll be able to play tourist, network, participate in events, and get a better sense of life in the city than the average tourist. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Quality trumps quantity!

Wi-Fi is a Necessity

Fast Wi-Fi is essential when working online. Examine the Wi-Fi situation before deciding on your destination(s). Is it easy to get to? Is it quick? Is it possible to obtain a SIM card for accurate statistics?

Every country differs, and even areas within countries differ, so do your homework before you go. This is particularly important for those who work with cameras or photography and must upload large files.

Furthermore, before renting an Airbnb or staying for an extended period of time, request that the owners send you a snapshot of their Wi-Fi speed. I've spent considerable time trying to find decent Wi-Fi in different countries, and nothing kills productivity like spending the day looking for good Wi-Fi when you could have it right away!

Connect with Expats and the Locals

One of the most exciting parts about traveling is meeting new people. As a digital nomad, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in society for extended periods than a foreigner would. You'll be able to collaborate, attend events, collaborate with others, and meet both tourists and locals.

So, make an effort to get out of your shell and interact with others regularly. Not only will it be enjoyable, but the networking opportunities will be beneficial to your business.

Visit a nearby co-working venue as well. It will almost certainly have regular events worth attending.

These tips will help you when you start traveling and live a digital nomad lifestyle. Being a member of the same community, I have a feeling that you will feel rejuvenated and alive.

Just follow the tips, and you’ll be golden!
