‘It always starts with a boy..’
Bec shares the story of her ex-boyfriend who introduced her to the nomadic lifestyle. He was traveling around Australia in his van and she joined him for a while. However, she did felt very connected to the idea of coming to Bali to explore her coaching career. She decided to take the leap and moved to Digital nomad hub Bali, Canggu.

A nomad hack for Bec is to actively guard her routines. By staying on top of how she spends her days and creating consistency when she plans her week. In this way, she makes that her time is committed to working, social activities and resting. Even though this sounds pretty simple, we recommend to keep an eye out because you might look track. Especially at the start of your nomad journey when you don’t have friends yet and need to go out.
What is your greatest failure in your
digital nomad lifestyle so far?

What advice do you give yourself and others about how to live the digital nomad lifestyle?
Other than creating routine we also recommend to nomads to create ‘me-time.’ It’s a powerful concept where you basically have some time for yourself. It doesn’t really what you do, as long as you feel relaxed and dismisses any distractions.
In our chat Bec shares that she had, she had to learn to be more kind to herself. She explains that sometimes it’s important to be more forgiving when it comes to meeting her own expectations. She says ‘Life is gonna happen and allow it to happen. Don’t beat yourself up if things don’t always go the way you have planned. Flow with life and take it gracefully.
Last question: What book or podcast do you recommend?
Like many nomads in Bali, Bec is into spiritual practices like meditation. A healthy state of mind and body is important to her and she recommends two books.
The second book she names is The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. Great for nomad and living in the present moment and the opportunities that get presented and really important for nomads.
