As a digital nomad – it’s important that I be really good at maximizing my time and my productivity. I have to manage when I work, my deadlines, and my prioritizations. One of the major mistakes I made before getting my productivity under control was not understanding WHEN I’m most productive, and not looking after myself. When I force myself to work through distractions, I’m not able to function at a highly productive level.
Instead, what I’ve figured out how to do is minimize my distractions, and take breaks when I need to. Instead of being antsy and getting up and down a million times, I’ll actually take a break and go for a walk. When I can’t do this, I have workout bands I use to do arm exercises from my chair. Taking care of myself mentally is almost always the same as taking care of myself physically.
