Take small breaks
Since you are getting adjusted to work independently, there are high chances that your productivity will drop. So to keep yourself working at a stable pace, consider taking a break of 5 minutes after around half an hour of work. Utilize these five minutes to involve yourself in something more sociable, so that when you get back to work again, you feel more relaxed and experience increased concentration.
Be a little careful in selecting your ‘nomadic’ workspace
A remote island is great to work, since there would be no external distractions; so if you maintain your sincerity, you can be highly productive. When you are travelling to places and working at the same time, you need to avoid certain places like very populated cyber cafes, wherein you might tend to lose focus. In case of a popular café, a lot of distractions would be caused by other customers, and you might end up spending the whole day eating lunch and consuming coffee and snacks. So opt for a place which has good internet connection and is also less populated.
Say NO, whenever necessary
As you lead your life as a digital nomad, you might meet a lot of people as you travel, some on vacation. These people might involve themselves in a lot of social media activities and well as other recreations. This might tempt you to join them, more so if they ask you to accompany them. Learn to say no to such things whenever required and make your online business a priority.
