Digital nomads are everywhere nowadays, and those who have yet to adopt this fun-loving lifestyle often aspire to do just that. Who wouldn’t want to travel the world while holding down a full-time job? Here are the top factors drawing workers to the digital nomad lifestyle.
The Freedom To Travel
The freedom to travel anywhere you want in the world at any time is one of the main factors people take into account when they are considering becoming a digital nomad. Millennials are especially attracted to the travelling element of this lifestyle since they tend to value experiences over material possessions.
Maintaining a good work-life balance improves your overall health and can help you to become a more well-rounded individual. Unfortunately, those with a regular 9-5 have struggled to achieve this balance for decades. Becoming a digital nomad solves a lot of the work-life balance issues that typical office jobs impose on your lifestyle, like unflexible scheduling and having to work in a specific location.
Distractions At the Office
From loud phone conversations to deliveries coming in and out, to people sharing details of what they did over the weekend - working in an office can be distracting, to say the least. No matter how hard you try to ignore everything that’s going on around you sometimes, it’s beyond your control. Working as a digital nomad means you get to choose the environment that suits your working style best and leave all distractions behind!
Exploring Other Cultures
Living and working in the same place for your entire life will result in you having a pretty limited view of the world. Digital nomads don’t have a designated working space, which means they have the unique opportunity to immerse themselves in other cultures for long periods of time. Since society is becoming increasingly multicultural, expanding your horizons by exploring different cultures can actually end up benefiting you in your job!
Avoiding High Costs Of Living
Cities like Toronto and Vancouver have unbelievably high costs of living, which poses a real threat to those of us who call these places our home. The problem of unaffordable housing isn’t going to go away any time soon, so moving to a more affordable location is the only viable solution. Digital nomads have the luxury of being able to move at the drop of a hat without it negatively impacting their employment status.
