Living a digital nomad lifestyle can have its challenges – and surely a fair share of mistakes! We know there is no final to-do /not-to-do list of norms when it comes to flexible living, but these are some of the things you might want to keep in mind when starting your nomad life!
1. Moving Too Often Can Be Too Much
Everyone dreams to become a digital nomad for the travel flexibility this lifestyle brings. Keep in mind that moving around too often is not for everyone, and some location stability and routine can also be beneficial for your professional and personal life!
2. Working Non-stop Is A No-No For Digital Nomads
We know being a digital nomad opens the door to many networking opportunities. But not everything needs to be about business. Take the time to try new things, immerse yourself in the culture of your chosen destination and discover new hobbies!
3. Time Difference When Working Remotely
Going to the other side of the world might sound fun but you have to consider the impact of potential time differences and keep your employee or clients in the loop about this.
4. Being A Digital Nomad With No Insurance
As a digital nomad, you might find yourself more exposed to missed flights, unknown health systems & loss/damage of personal goods due to your never-settling way of living. That’s why having good insurance can save you many headaches and of course money!
5. Isolating Yourself Is Not So Nomad
If it is your first time working remotely as a digital nomad is normal that you struggle in finding a balance between professional and personal life. This can lead to you over-working and staying all day closed up in your flat alone. For example, booking a room in a co-living space might just be what you need to make sure you keep a social life even while dedicating yourself to your career or if you’re simply a shy person! Finding the right accommodation can dictate the quality of your new digital nomad life, that’s why you can ask the assistance of our team of housing professionals in Sharedd and discover the perfect place for your desired lifestyle.
