This is the last video in the series that I’ve been recording on the challenges of being a digital nomad and today we’re looking at the solutions to balancing work and life when you’re living on the road. Check out my tips by watching this video or reading below.
I’m filming this video from the unbelievably neat
Lake Titicaca on a floating island.
Today I’ve got 5 tips I’d like to share about finding a work-life balance:
#1 - The first is a mindset shift. Because when you are a digital nomad and you’re working, it’s not a vacation. Even though it feels like it is. Once upon a time being on the road like this meant it was a vacation but you now have to balance seeing all the cool stuff with doing your work and living your life. So how do you do that? I would say that planning is going to be your friend.
#2 - Decide what your work hours are and try to stick to them.
#3 - Decide how many hours you need to work to get done what you need to get done.
#4 - Plan out what you’d like to see in the places you’re visiting so that you don’t feel like you’re missing out.
#5 - One of the most important things though is a mindset shift. It’s ok to not see everything. When you’re living in your home base for example, you’re not upset by not getting to every restaurant in the city or seeing every attraction that exists. You are used to the idea that you’re going to miss something and you need to be okay with that as well when you’re on the road.
That’s it for this week!
