Digital Nomad - Tips for a Life of Possibilities
Atualizado: 4 de set.
Hy friends! Good to see you here!
If you're thinking about traveling and working remotely or becoming a digital nomad, know that you're entering a world of possibilities! This lifestyle can be exciting and challenging but also very rewarding. To make the most of this experience, it's important to prepare adequately and have a plan to make this transition as smooth as possible.
Before I started traveling and changing my entire life, I did a lot of research on digital nomadism, tried out some things, and got to know myself in the process to gain clarity on what this new life would be like and if it was really for me.

To help you on this journey, I've gathered some important tips that can assist in planning and adapting to this new lifestyle. They are:
Tip n.º 1 - Mentality
Before embarking on this journey, it's important to be mentally prepared for the challenges and stress that may come with it. Having a sense of self-awareness is important so that you can identify signs of becoming overwhelmed. Establish self-care practices to relax and recharge. Creating habits can be quite helpful in this process, and if you have difficulty maintaining habits, it may be interesting to use an app that encourages you, such as Fabulous, for example.
Tip n.º 2 - Adaptability
Another thing to consider is your lifestyle. As a digital nomad, you'll need to be flexible and ready to change locations and environments frequently. Be prepared to adapt to new cultures and languages and to face new challenges. During my tests around Brazil, I noticed that spending too little time in a place made me anxious because I wanted to get to know where I was and make the most of that time. So, I decided that one month in each place is enough time to explore and enjoy, and if the place doesn't suit me, I know that in one month, I'll be in a different place.
Tip n.º 3 - Accommodations
Whether as a digital nomad or working remotely and traveling for short periods, you'll have to settle in new places frequently. Some options are renting apartments or rooms for a period and looking for accommodations that fit your budget. Some platforms that are good to search on are Airbnb, Booking, and Hostelworld. I've been using Airbnb every month for various reasons, a secure platform, discounts for long stays (which is important), guarantees in case of problems, and nearly every place in the world has an Airbnb to book. Consider how your routine is; for me, tranquility and security are essential. I need a place where I can concentrate to work and that ensures a stable internet connection.
