How can I stay healthy as a digital nomad?


by @nomadaccountant 7yr  | 16 comments

Please share your tips for keeping healthy while travelling. My 2 favourites, that have helped my out numerous times are:

  1. Probiotics to avoid stomach complaints (yakult, yoghurt, kimchi, etc)
  2. Red/raspberry fanta to settle stomach issues. May not work all the time but a couple of bottles of red fanta early on has not failed in settling my stomach.

  1. Lots of sleep or an afternoon nap.
  2. A standing desk when working so you can alternate between sitting and standing
  3. Sneaking in a workout wherever you can (take stairs instead of lifts, walk everywhere if possible, stretch often)
  4. Hydrate and eat regular meals, small portions but balanced (enough fruits, veggies and less processed foods)
  5. Take care of your mind (meditate, yoga, happy songs, do what makes your mind happy)

Hope that helps :slight_smile: and I agree with you with the probiotics.

Street food can be healthier than restaurant food, depending on where you are.

Just avoid street food, do some in-house workout and the most important: use condoms! :slight_smile:

On food: keep it simple, no restaurants, something you can prepare fast. My day diet is: 1 apple + some peanut butter, 4-6 slices of Wasa, 200gr of good quality salumi, eggs, some cheese. My evening diet is: ~0.5kg of fresh vegetables in a salad, 100-150gr of meet or fish. Thatโ€™s the same everyday, excluding Sundays when I take some breaks from it.

Itโ€™s low carb, you donโ€™t have to go low carb, but the main idea here is that if you keep it simple you make it easy for you to: 1) create a habit of eating healthy food; 2) create a habit of eating less or enough; 3) have food available throughout the day in almost any situation; 4) get less food poisoning(?)

Then once or twice a week take a break, go to a restaurant, eat something you like. Every few weeks, take few days of break to eat โ€œnormalโ€.

On exercise: go to a gym and spend 3 to 4 hrs a week there focusing on fundamentals. Or do 2 hrs of gym and 1-1.5 of running. I think if you leave in a place for longer than a week, you should be able to find a gym and a place to run.

If you need to go somewhere that takes you less than an hour to walk just do that rather than other options. Try to apply it everywhere. See it as saving yourself some money. Besides, you might see new things as you do so. Change routes for variation if itโ€™s a walk you do everyday.

Neila Reyโ€™ s website (http://darebee.com/) has a massive amount of body weight exercises which are ideal for nomads or travelers. Eveything is free and she even sketches all the exerices herself. And she published new workouts every single day.

She is super-awesome! :smiley:

I use the 7-minute work out app on my iPhone. Itโ€™s not perfect but since itโ€™s all full body exercises, it means I can do it anywhere. I do cycles of 3. So thatโ€™s a 21-minute intense work out, which is decent.

Drink less alchohol, coffee and black tea. Drink more green tea instead.
Qi Gong practice - this one is really a cool method to learn relaxation skill, which is essential for well-being.
Eat a good food.
Try to go to sleep not very late.

@skatkov 7yr

So far, iโ€™ve been focusing on 3 things to stay healthy:

  • Drink less alcohol
  • Consume Omega 3
  • Do some fitness/workouts (usually running for me)

So far so good, iโ€™ve only had issues if i would stop practicing any of above rules :slight_smile:

What features would you like to see on Nomad List?


by @levelsio 2yr 1 year ago  | 3 comments

Hi everyone,

I would love to hear what you'd like me to build next on Nomad List, or any other product/feature feedback ideas you have.

It's been 6+ years now but I'm in this for the long term and with the boost remote work got last year it's even more exciting to work on Nomad List than ever.

Current roadmap is here: twitter.com/levelsio/status/1363204985488572417?s=20 and pbs.twimg.com/media/EusS9PKXEAUR8xp?format=jpg&name=4096x4096

The next products/features I have planned:

- ๐Ÿ›‚ Rebase: visa, residency and immigration services for remote workers

- ๐ŸŽ“Courses: learn the steps how to go remote and travel/relocate

- ๐Ÿ› Gov liaison: diplomacy services to the governments to help us lobby for nomads and for them to attract remote workers

Thanks a lot!

List of Visa/Residency Information in Table/Spreadsheet format?


by @innovatelife 2yr 1 year ago  | 2 comments

As part of signing up for this website I was hoping I would come across a list of Visa and/or Residency requirements by country ideally in a table format to assist with decision making. Does anybody recommend any other websites that might present the information in this format (or Google Spreadsheet)?

Most Walkable Neighborhood / City In The World ?


by @dannybooboo 2yr 1 year ago  | 1 comment

I love living in walkable areas of town. I can always find them. But now I'm wondering where in the world are the most walkable places? I'm imagining walk streets (no cars), zoning allowing both business and residential, parks or beaches ,etc.

Any nomads in Arizona, US?


in Netherlands by @info132 2yr 1 year ago  | 4 comments

Hi guys,

After the Netherlands, the Bay Area, Colorado and being on the van life for 8 months, I am now in Sedona, AZ with a few other digital nomads. We are sharing a home here and are wondering if there are more like minded people in the area.

We do a bunch of hikes and campouts in the northern of Arizona. If you would like to connect with us, please do so :)

Hi everybody. I live and work in Germany and want to go to Canary Islands for 6 months to work from there. I'm going to keep my current job, just change the "home" in the home office part of things. Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of? I was reading about becoming a residence after 183 days, thus having to pay taxes there plus my employer having to register there. Does anybody know how it works exactly? Thanks a lot!

Anyone up to explore some city which is kinda virus safe?


in Bangkok , Thailand by @germanrobert 2yr 1 year ago  | 2 comments

Hello World!

I'm an experienced Digital Nomad and after being in Lockdown in Bangkok and Germany for one year I would like to team up with someone to visit a new place. Or just doing some exchange about what destinations would be interesting currently.

I take the virus seriously and still I think we can still be able to take our life in our own hands. So I'm aiming for cities/countries which are not in full lockdown, are not too complicated about immigration (I'm looking at you Thailand, your state quarantine costs like 1k USD and is basically a prison) and is also rather safe regarding the virus. I tend to stick for rather big cities and like culture. I'm not a beach or nature person. I'm pretty flexible about the money topic.

If you're American but live in Guatemala, do you still count as American for travel purposes?


in Guatemala by @chasindreams 2yr 1 year ago  | 0 comments

What I mean is, for example, since most of the EU has banned Americans, if I live in Guatemala and will be traveling FROM Guatemala to the EU, could I get in? Or does the ban count for all Americans regardless of where they live?

Ukraine Residency

I have a slightly above average US income which I can work remotely from paired with a $1000 a month income stream and more than enough to purchase a middle end Flat in Ukraine. Does anyone with knowledge of this process have any advice to acquire a reliable way to stay in the country?

Are co-working spaces a good way to meet people in a new city?


by @donaldbough 2yr 1 year ago  | 1 comment

My fiancรฉe and I are most likely moving to NYC (maybe DC) in August, and as a technical startup co-founder I'd love to meet new people that are also into startups. Would joining a co-working space be worth the money to do this?

I work for a big tech company that has an office in NYC, but it's mainly sales so I wouldn't be able to meet others that are related to any of my 9-5 work or likely into tech.

If co-working spaces, post covid of course, aren't a good way to meet business starting people in a new city, what is?

Is there a map of countries open for travel now?


in Russia by @vernon99 2yr 1 year ago  | 8 comments

I have two passports from different countries and am trying to understand where can I travel now. Is there a publicly available map of countries open for visitors by passport country that I can use to see what are my options? I was pretty sure such a thing should exist, but cannot easily find any.

Maybe at least there're maps for specific passports? Mine are Russian and American.

If there's no such thing, I'd be down to build one, let me know if interested to collaborate :)
