Have a Semblance of Routine:
Never assume that people with no bossing around them have no work routine. Well, the inside truth is that every successful freelancer or digital nomad has to have a routine, though it will be highly flexible but that’s the cost associated with digital nomad lifestyle.
So, no matter what time you get up or at times you pull off a full nighter or awake till wee hours. Well, a sense of routine is the key to productivity because it keeps you focused and within the orientation. A digital nomad without first-rate productivity may sound like a moribund tourist.
Recognize your most Productive Time:
Productivity varies with time and differs from one person to another. Every freelancer or digital nomad knows what window of time works best for them. Some may be nocturnal in nature while many like to kick off their day with the sunrise. If you can decide this spot, then you can decide a turn-around-time (TAT) for your clients.
Lethargy kills slowly. Fighting off the negative energy or mood swings leads to a better and productive lifestyle. Have healthy food. Keep a workout regime. Stretch and exercise in a park or road, choose a time slot: morning or evening. Good energy is needed for good mood. Feeling good about yourself pushes you to perform better mentally.
Keeping time for yourself stays you sane. Pulling an all nighter is fine, but you should have a sound sleeping regime in the day. Well, working all night should not be your top priority, it is recommended for once in a blue moon. Being social is no more considered an escape but a basic necessity of the modern times.
Planning is an important part of this lifestyle as you are out of home and you got to work to be alive while enjoying the most cherished lifestyle in the world. Maintain a checklist whether weekly or daily, arrange a list of clients and the work order that you have received from them. Planning keeps you updated and sorted out, also it gives an immense amount of elation when you tick off the things that you have already completed.
Know How to Reset:
It is quite possible to feel dejected or unmotivated at times. And for that moment you should have a plan to reset your energy or mood. Too much partying during work days may distract you. Treat every day a new as it requires a lot of flexibility to succeed as a digital nomad. It’s not another 9-5 job. Heed on your inner voice and find a way to reset your mood, whether home or abroad.
