Obviously, this is the question nowadays. But what happened was that everyone started talking about it and it became so important.
Well probably nothing, it’s always been the most essential part of our lives but recently we’ve realized that “Oh yeah, I’m a human being, I deserve something more than 180 hours of work a week”.
The pandemic had terrible consequences among people, but at the same time maybe it was this bad period that allowed people to unlock that consciousness, to turn to their inner body and ask “What am I, what am I doing, what do I deserve”.

As owners of Burgas coliving, we have had the amazing opportunity to observe how people seek or incorporate different types of practices and methods to achieve balance in their lives and notice how the lifestyle of digital nomads has had a huge positive impact in this direction. So let’s summarize a few key points on achieving work-life balance and maintaining overall well-being and productivity.
To achieve work-life balance, start by setting your priorities. Determine what is most important to you in both your professional and personal life. Set specific working hours and make time for leisure activities, hobbies, self-care and make your daily schedule each morning. This will help you to be more focused, productive in your work and take advantage of all the benefits of your free time.
Working from a coworking space, your own bedroom, couch, hammock, or bean bag, indoors or outdoors, all different types of work have different requirements and we all have different needs and understandings of the perfect workspace. The good thing is that being a digital nomad and staying in coliving gives you the opportunity to satisfy them all. You just have to find what works best for you, or even better, combine them all.
Turn your daily schedule into a routine. This can provide structure and stability in your dynamic life. While flexibility is one of the benefits of the digital nomad lifestyle, having a consistent daily routine can help you maintain balance in your life. Set a schedule for work, exercise, eating, resting, and exploring. Create rituals that signal the beginning and end of your work day to mentally transition between work and personal time. Find a routine that works best for you and adapt it as needed depending on your location and work.
One of the biggest benefits of being a digital nomad is the flexibility it offers. Take advantage of this flexibility by incorporating work and personal activities into your travel plans. Make time for sightseeing, cultural experiences and exploration during your time in different locations. Take advantage of the freedom to work from inspiring environments, such as waterfront cafes or scenic parks. Finding the right work-life balance is all about taking advantage of your lifestyle and all that your surroundings provide.
The home office puts many of us in terrible isolation. But we are social animals, aren’t we? One of the best benefits of s in a coliving is that you can meet lots of people from different backgrounds, discover the world through their eyes, learn from them, share special moments with each other, help and support each other. You can meet not only people, but friends for life. And all while still having the opportunity to keep your privacy. It’s amazing how this great community that is created in the coliving can keep harmony and balance for everyone together, but also for everyone individually.
This is the most important essential thing that doesn’t matter if you’re a digital nomad, remote worker or not. Prioritize self-care activities such as exercise, meditation, proper nutrition, and getting enough sleep. Engage in activities that bring you joy and help you relax, whether it’s exploring new places, communing with nature, or pursuing hobbies. Find ways to unplug from work and technology regularly to recharge and rejuvenate.
And always remember that your work and job are transient, but your body, mind and soul are not. Take care of yourself! Enjoy life! Breathe deeply and be grateful because life is beautiful, the world is a treasure and it is all yours! NAMASTE
