Lack of Control

Living in “borrowed environments” in which many things are out of our control can leave us feeling like we don’t really have a safe haven when we need to escape from the world and be on our own. It can also work to rob us of a sense of agency within our own lives.

Digital nomads often need to learn techniques for shutting out their environment and entering their own “mental” safe space, through practices such as meditation.

It can also be a good idea to take more control over the things that are within your control, like the positioning of your laptop and bags.
