10 reasons why you should become a digital nomad
in 2021

As the COVID-19 vaccine starts to roll-out, many people will be yearning for a change of scenery and wondering when they can travel, particularly if they've been working remotely all this time.

There are myriad perks to being footloose and fancy-free and unbound by the ties of working for one employer in one location. Here are some of the top advantages to the digital nomad life.

Choosing your
own office

As a digital nomad, you choose where you work, whether that means a coffee shop, a co-working space, or a palm-thatched bungalow on a tropical beach.

Numerous surveys have revealed that people feel happier with some variety in their working environment, rather than sitting every day doing the same thing in the exact same space.

Choosing your
own hours

While it takes some discipline to set your own hours and stick to a routine, as a digital nomad, how you structure your time is completely down to you.

If you want to start the day with a scuba dive and clock on at midday, you can. If you want to sleep all day and work through the night, there’s no-one stopping you.

Maximum variety

Nothing stifles creativity like doing the same thing over again. As a digital nomad, you’ll be working on something new for every contract, sometimes for new people, and often in a new location.

Freelancing is the embodiment of the maxim that variety is the spice of life!

No more commuting

Numerous surveys have shown that the daily commute is the number one hate for most workers. More than 50% of people resent the daily commute and the number is higher for people working in big cities.

Of course, during 2021, many of us dropped the commute in exchange for staring at the walls of our own home. For digital nomads, that same walk to the laptop can be appreciated anywhere.
