How do you take care of your mental health during the transition to a digital nomad lifestyle?


by @kalitherapy |  | 8 comments

Iโ€™m a professional psychotherapist who is starting out in this lifestyle and Iโ€™m curious to hear what specific psychological struggles people had to overcome while making the transition to life as a DM. Also, what do you do to stay mentally healthy while traveling to foreign lands. Iโ€™m interested in hearing any insights people may have, especially since I am working on a book on psychological resilience and I canโ€™t think of a more stressful transition than moving from a static to a nomadic lifestyle. If youโ€™re not comfortable putting your experiences on a public forum, feel free to PM me.

Introduce yourself โ€” who are you, where are you and what do you do?

 

by @coffeeshopceo |  | 667 comments

tl;dr: introduce yourself in this thread.

We must all get sick of the same backpacker travel questions when we meet new friends, I know I do.

You know the ones - where are you from, whereโ€™ve you been, where are you going, what do you do, how long have you been doing it - etc.

The novelty of answering these questions wears off after maybe a week, but theyโ€™re nonetheless insightful and no matter how much we hate them, we find ourselves asking others.

So letโ€™s bring the dreaded backpacker questionnaire to NomadForum and introduce ourselves shall we?

**

  • whatโ€™s your name?
  • where are you from?
  • how long have you been away from home?
  • what do you do?
  • where are you currently?
  • where are you going?
  • what has been memorable for you so far?
  • will you go home anytime soon?
  • what have you learnt during your time as a nomad?
  • [insert your own question here]

**

No need to answer them all if you donโ€™t want to :smile:
But the more you shareโ€ฆ The merrier!

Where are the nomad hot spots in Central and South America?

 

by @jb510 |  | 106 comments

The last few years Iโ€™ve spent mostly in Asia (Thailand/Indonesia) and Europe (Spain/Italy), but I run a company in the US and need to coordinate with 10 US based employees and business partners. The time zone issues between EU/US and SEA/US are exhausting even if I love the locales.

Iโ€™d really like to try romping around the Americas for a while, but Iโ€™ve never been south of Baja California and really canโ€™t find much positive having been said about remotely working from CA/SA as a DN.

I know some hippy, surfer, artist, musician, yoga teacher types calling various locals home, but no one making a living onlineโ€ฆ more than a few people have told me itโ€™s fabulous down there until you go to Thailand/Bali and then you wonder why all those ExPats are suffering in CA/SA. Of course you only really know when you go yourself.

Iโ€™d love to see nomadlist.io get filled out with more details on Central and South American cities. It seems really sparse coverage at the moment, but maybe thatโ€™s simply because itโ€™s not good and no one stays there for long.

Suggestions for home base for 10 months in Mexico or Panama next year?


in Mexico by @we_are_escaping |  | 14 comments

Weโ€™re researching places to use as a home base next year, and are leaning towards Mexico or Panama for 10 months (with 1 week โ€œvacationsโ€ to explore surrounding countries)

But, I want to settle some place where the infrastructure is good enough for fast, reliable internet - fast enough to run live webinars without worrying that Iโ€™ll be S.O.L due to internet issues when itโ€™s time to go live.

And ideally, Iโ€™d like to be on the coastโ€ฆ I like to have ocean/beach access without the need for a drive.

And not in a malaria zone (just saying, since Panama in particular has many areas that Iโ€™d rule out simply due to the need for malaria prevention meds)โ€ฆ itโ€™s one thing to take that stuff for a few weeks long trip, but I donโ€™t want to take it for months on end.

Thoughts?

Thanks for reading all :slight_smile:

in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico by @oskar |  | 12 comments

Iโ€™m going to travel to Mexico by the end of february and i would like to know which place do you recommend to stay at for a month or so. Which one would fit better for a digital nomad? Pros and Cons for each place are welcomed :smile:

How do you work out and stay fit on the road?

 

by @christianbundy |  | 30 comments

I worked out a few times a week back home, but havenโ€™t been able to figure out how to make it a part of my routine now that Iโ€™m living out of my backpack in hostels. Iโ€™ve always gone to gyms, but Iโ€™d be open to trying bodyweight exercises. I thought that I might be able to do bodyweight exercises in parks/etc, but the past few days in London have been wet and miserable and I canโ€™t find the motivation to go do push ups in wet grass. Any advice?

Did you feel "lost" transitioning to nomadism?

 

by @levelsio |  | 38 comments

I was wondering if any of you have had this while on the road.

The whole transition from normal life to nomadism and moving around different places has been super fun but also super intense. Itโ€™s also why I built #nomads, to remove those feelings a bit :smile:

From times Iโ€™ve felt super amazing and then super lost.

How has it been for you to shift from normal life to your nomad life?

Why is South East Asia preferred by nomads over Latin America?

 

by @oskar |  | 34 comments

Hi guys

Why do you think south east asia attracts far more 1st world digital nomads and tourists than latin america does? i have some theories but i would like to know your opinions because most of the people in this forum are from 1st world countries :smile:
Is it because is cheaper? safer? closer? more โ€œcoolโ€ ?

thanks

What's the best US state to incorporate?


by @fuzzybabybunny |  | 9 comments

Iโ€™m getting sick of being a CA business because too many things need to be physically mailed in. My customers are all located in the Bay Area in California, but I want to incorporate in a state with low tax liability plus the ability to manage EVERYTHING online, such as business licensing, etc. Anyone got any tips?

What's a good place in Malaysia near the beach?


in Malaysia by @bobz_zg |  | 7 comments

Anyone can suggest some place in Malaysia where could I rent some affordable place ( < 30$ US/d) and be near the beach. What I need is:

  • decent room with daily cleaning
  • 4G reception
  • some night life around, like where there are few bars to hang out when my head is

I came from Phuket week ago to KL, was 100m from the beach for 1 month.
O what a depression when I came to a shitty hotel in KL, I wanted to turn around and go back to Thailand. O, my Buddha!

How have you dealt with bereavement when you are halfway around the world and can not make it home?


by @iamjamesrodgers |  | 5 comments

I really wish I didnโ€™t have to ask this, itโ€™s such a sensitive topic to many but unfortunately Death is inevitable in our lives as we grow -

My Girlfriend and I are currently upon our first lengthy nomadic travels, and a beloved friend has had her Mother tragically and rather quickly pass away.

My Girlfriend is really struggling and feeling suffocated by the distance.

What is the best techniques to be a supportive person to a beloved friend whoโ€™s parent has just passed away while you are on the other side of the world? Or the passing of someone in general? So far weโ€™ve sent an arrangement and wrote a letter to convey our empathy for the friend and Her family -

We both just want our support to be felt and to be enough to make up for not being physically there, it would break my heart for us to be seen as non supportive in this tough time.

US citizens how did you choose where to vote?


by @wanderingdev |  | 3 comments

Iโ€™ll admit it, I usually donโ€™t vote. But with the current batch of scary ass clowns vying for the presidency, I feel like I really have to for the next election. My problem is, I have no idea what state to register in.

Iโ€™ve not lived in the USA since 2008.

My license is from AZ but Iโ€™ve not lived there since 2001.

The last place I lived in the USA was DC, but only for a few months, and I canโ€™t receive mail there.

I receive mail at my moms house in Indiana, bit I havenโ€™t lived there in 20+ years.

So. How do I figure out where to register to vote?

What do you do?

Can becoming a digital nomad help fight your anxiety and depression?


by @noam_lightstone |  | 13 comments

Hey guys, I officially became a nomad in February, moving to HCMC in Vietnam. Now Iโ€™m living in Chiang Mai.

I used to suffer from really bad anxiety and depression, and have a blog that helps people who deal with them.

I wondered: could becoming a digital nomad help with these mental issues?

For the pro-side, you get to travel, meet so many people, see more things than many could hope to see in their entire lifeโ€ฆ

On the against-side, you have stress of sometimes not having money if youโ€™re just starting out, loneliness/isolation, problem with integrating into a new culture, etc.

Wanted to get you guysโ€™ opinions and thoughts. Do you think this lifestyle can help or hurt? Why or why not?

What do you do with presents?


by @bydorian |  | 6 comments

So there are many occasion people give gifts, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Birthdays, โ€ฆ etc.

For instance:

  • Food: you can use it pretty quickly
  • Flowers: doesnโ€™t last too long
  • Perfume: take a lot of space for a month or two
  • Clothes: what if you donโ€™t life them? (eg: a t-shirt, a scarf, โ€ฆ)
  • Random stuff: as part of the nomadic life, we want to be minimalist and canโ€™t keep too much stuff

I would say there is short-term, middle-term and long-term goods. And useful / useless / special goods.

So we have a problem, we donโ€™t have infinite storage space (either out of the bag in containers or inside bags).

Attacking the source of the problem:

  1. Asking people to give mostly short-term goods, useful middle-term/long-term goods (eg: from a wishlist for instance)
  2. Asking for no physical gifts
  3. Not going / celebrating those occasions
  4. Something else?

I think itโ€™s pretty hard to prevent people from giving unwanted gifts (rejecting a gift is an huge cultural mistake).

Attacking the effects of the problem:

  1. Giving gifts to somebody else
  2. Re-selling gifts
  3. Taking a photo of it and throwing it away
  4. Shipping them to some stockage container company
  5. Something else?

I personally think thatโ€™s one of the biggest thing against minimalism, and ultimately against the freedom of moving quickly.

So, what you you do?
