Electrifies my curiosity
Digital nomads have one personality trait in common which is curiosity. Nienke Nina shares in this episode that the digital nomad lifestyle really helped her to keep up with her curiosity. Living abroad, traveling and learning about other cultures and new ideas about life truly electrifies her curiosity. This has helped her to become more open-minded and have less judgment.
Another great benefit of living the digital nomad lifestyle Nienke Nina sees is that she has become more conscious about her surroundings, the planet and herself. Conscious living is a popular topic among digital nomads and Nienke Nina shares personal experiences in this episode. For example, using her birthday for a Donation Day to help the local community. This lifestyle and more specifically the community, taught her a lot about herself like her purpose and who she wants to become. Connecting with like-minded people that understand her from the get-go and have similar goals in life helped her connect with herself and explore other paths.
Personal development, career growth and mindset are pillars of the digital nomad lifestyle and often conversation topics inside communities. In fact, inside the global digital nomad communities, you find many groups and sub-communities focused on growth. Other growth opportunities come from the daily stuff keeping digital nomads busy like packing, moving, arranging travels and trips and finding new like-minded people to hang out with. Autopilot often doesn’t work as a digital nomad so you become more conscious and in that mindset, there are constant growth opportunities for digital nomads.
