As a traveling entrepreneur or digital nomad, maintaining healthy habits is even more important than it is for a regular entrepreneur. As much fun as we know traveling can be, frequent moving and traveling can take a toll on your health and wellbeing, especially if you arent taking the steps to keep yourself healthy while on the road. Here are a few tips (and product recommendations) that can help keep you healthy while traveling and working on your business.
In a study conducted by the Draugiem Group, it was found that the most successful employees worked less than 8 hours per day and took breaks every hour. Our brains were not meant to concentrate for stretches of time longer than 2 hours. The most successful entrepreneurs understand this, and build these “brain breaks” into their workdays. Instead of plowing through and forcing yourself to get things done, step away and give your brain the chance it needs to recharge. When you come back to the task at hand, you’ll be refreshed, more productive, and the quality of your work will be that much better.

To Multitask or Not?
4 Hour Workweek author Tim Ferriss recommends removing all distractions from your workspace and giving yourself a strict time limit to finish each task. Instead of trying to answer emails, field phone calls, write a blog post and chat on Facebook, set aside a dedicated amount of time to perform a single, solitary task while giving it your full attention. The quality of your work will soar, and your interactions with clients and colleagues, and other digital nomads will become much richer as you give them your undivided attention.
One of the best healthy habits practiced by successful digital nomads and traveling coaches or entrepreneurs is the cultivation of strong relationships: relationships with your clients, relationships with your partners, and even the relationship you have with yourself. Joint ventures and partnerships will skyrocket you to success faster than any amount of solo work ever could. Instead of trying to white-knuckle this business thing by yourself, reach out to like-minded coaches and trainers and find ways to build mutually beneficial partnerships.
Step Away From Your work
Sure, you’re living your passion as a traveling coaching entrepreneur or digital nomad, but if you eat, breathe, and sleep your business without ever taking time for yourself, you’ll have little of real value to offer your clients. Hobbies, pastimes, and continued travel provide the enrichment your spirit needs to make you a better business owner and person. These things give you fresh perspectives on old problems, and ultimately help you achieve higher and higher levels of success.
Regular Exercise is Crucial for Healthy Digital Nomad Lifestyle
Use your time away from the computer wisely! Depending on where you’re traveling, there are usually lots of opportunities to be active outside, doing fun things that double as exercise. For example, many of our locations are nearby great surf spots, and surfing is an excellent full-body workout. We digital nomads already use apps for everything, so why not do the same for fitness? Mobile apps are a super convenient way to stay fit as a digital nomad, and there are a bunch to choose from.
If you need help gettingthe most out of your workouts, you will want to check out the AMPED Power pre-workout.
When sitting at your desk, bed, cafe, or wherever you (and your laptop) work, it can be easy to forget to drink water. Bad mistake! It should come as no surprise that drinking H2o and staying hydrated benefits your entire body.
If you still feel like you struggle to adequately hydrate while on the road, the electrolytes and vitamins and minerals in every sip of AMPED™ Hydrate make the perfect addition to your healthy nomad lifestyle.
Healthy Diets & Meal Prepping
When traveling as a digital nomad, it’s super tempting to eat out for every meal and try all the different local restaurants around you. Trust me, I know! However, this not only gets super expensive but also isn’t the healthiest. Cooking and eating at “home” is one of the most simple and effective healthy travel tips.
Always keep a stash of healthy snacks in your pack during traveling. Whether you are planning to explore the city or boarding a flight to somewhere new, it is best to stock your bag with healthy travel snacks. Some of the healthy snacks that you can keep are almonds, dried fruit, protein bars, protein powder, and so on.
IsaLean Bars are delicious, easy, and perfect for a quick meal on the go.
Do your very best to sleep more and deep. Getting enough sleep is imperative to performing well while you are working away from your home. Give your body the chance to find its balance and sleep even in day time. I prefer to had some extra free days at the beginning of a new trip, so I can adjust to the new time zone. Books, music and meditation are all great remedies to jetlag.
If sleep is an area of your life that you still struggle, I recommend checking out this Sleep Support System or if you want to dive deeper in the science of sleep, you should check out this Sleep Science Coach course.
The most successful entrepreneurs follow through on their word with their clients, co-workers, and partners. They do what they say they’re going to do, keep their promises, and acknowledge it when they don’t. One way to follow-through is to under-promise and over-deliver. Doing this prevents you from breaking your word. For instance, if a client wants your feedback on a project of theirs, you might agree to provide said feedback by Friday afternoon. When you submit feedback early on Wednesday morning instead, you’ve not only kept your word; you’ve gone above and beyond what the client expected of you. If you can’t get to the feedback until Friday, you’ve still kept your word and maintained your client’s trust.
Happy, healthy and successful digital nomads and travleing entrepreneurs are flexible. Flexible with their clients, their businesses, and themselves. While it’s great to plan and set goals, it’s even more important to ditch plans that simply aren’t working and tweak goals based on the results you’re seeing in your business. Give yourself permission to change your mind if a venture or project simply isn’t delivering the kind of results you’d hoped for. Sometimes what marks the difference between a successful entrepreneur and a failing entrepreneur is knowing when to throw in the towel.
