5 Ways to Thrive While Living As a Digital Nomad

5 Ways to Thrive While Living As a Digital Nomad | Location Independent | Scoop.it
I recently began my journey as a digital nomad just a few months ago. Living in a foreign country where my grasp of the local language is tenuous at best has been both a challenge as well as an amazing experience. I truly feel we grow through adversity. I have a slight edge over others who start this lifestyle though, you see I am a professional psychotherapist and life coach, I have worked with digital nomads in the past. This allowed me to learn from their challenges. Many of the negative issues I have experienced so far are not unique, other digital nomads have also had them. If you are thinking about diving into this unique lifestyle, let me help you overcome the most common issues that many new digital nomads struggle with at first. Here are five ways to help you thrive as a digital nomad: 1. Develop a daily exercise habit- Staying fit is obviously important, no matter what lifestyle you choose. However it is ever more important when in a foreign country, your body is being exposed to things that its immunity system has never deal with before. Also, you will be more productive and just feel better. Try something simple like walking around your new neighborhood for an hour…become a flaneur! 2. Commit to a least one in-depth conversation a day- It is very easy living in a foreign country where you don’t know the language to self-isolate and just work on your laptop all the time. However, we are social animals (yes…even us introverts) and need to engage with others at times. This important for our emotional health and to stave off loneliness. If you don’t speak the local dialect, try and find someone who speaks your tongue, lots of ex-pats and tourists out there. If you can’t find anyone locally, Skype a friend or family member. 3. Don’t become a “party animal”- We have all seen those people who are ALWAYS up for a good time…no matter what. They will try anything and as the night wears on, lose all inhibitions. Many digital nomads who travel for the first time can get caught up in what I call the tourist trap, this is when you fall in with the tourists who are in the same place as you but they are there to party…hard. Limit your hedonistic pursuits to a few nights a week at the most, so that you can focus on your daily work, as well as rest your body. Party any more than that, you’re no longer a digital nomad but a tourist. 4. Have a specific goal in mind when you start- What is your goal as a digital nomad? Are you trying to build a business, write a book, or live in unique places while making a living? Before you jump into this lifestyle have a specific goal in mind. I have come across more than one person who became a digital nomad to run away from something (e.g. responsibility, break-ups, emotional problems, etc.), this is not a goal and will come back to haunt you as you’re traveling. 5. Carry one connection with home while you travel- A common issue with many digital nomads is homesickness. This tends to occur within the first two to three months of living in a foreign environment for the first time. You are still adjusting to someplace new and it is normal for you to miss home. Carry with you a memento or two that reminds you of home. This could be pictures, art objects or even a teddy bear, whatever it is that connects you to where you are from. Now more than five ways to thrive as a digital nomad exist but I feel these are the basic fundamentals, without these five, you will have a difficult time traveling extensively and working. I would love to hear other peoples’ experiences as well. What else do you need to do in order to thrive as a digital nomad?
