My Life Routine

This is my daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly routine, that I try to maintain as much as possible no matter which country I'm living in. My happiness is mainly fueled by freedom, getting things done, and being healthy, so that's what I focus on.

Digital Nomad Travel Rotation

My travels are optimized for an ideal weather all year round, in what I consider the best cities to live. My default rotation is the following: I incorporate scouting phases where I try new cities throughout the year.

Nutrition

I am vegetarian (for ethical reasons), I eat low-carb, and as little processed foods or sugar as possible. I supplement my diet with vitamin B12, omega-3 fish oil, and whey protein. I drink water with apple cider vinegar or lemon when I'm at home, and green tea in cafés. I eat organic whenever possible. Check out my Nutrition Facts spreadsheet. Some of my preferred foods that are optimal for health and taste are:

I avoid pasta, white rice, white bread, potatoes, baked goods, desserts, chocolate bars, and salt. I also avoid dairies (except whey protein) for a better skin. I do not have sugar cravings at all, but I have an addiction for chocolate. When I must have some chocolate, my first choice is Lindt 85%, which I don't like enough to want to binge-eat it, and has the most optimal macros / taste of the Lindt dark chocolates.

When going to bars or nightclubs with friends, my preferred drinks to stay healthy and avoid sugar and getting fat are:

Fitness

I work out at the gym every other day. As a digital nomad I change gym very frequently, and since all gyms have different equipment, I've developed a preference for using dumbbells for a more stable routine. Dumbbells are highly available in every gym and are great for symmetrical growth. I particularly like exercises that only require dumbbells, not even a bench. I guess that's also because I am a minimalist.

I like to optimize my workflow and save time, so I've combined together exercices that use only one pair of dumbbells into the following dumbbells-only supersets:

5kgs
6kgs
7kgs
8kgs
No Equipment
Cable

At each session at the gym, I do all these exercises. I either do 2 full drop sets per exercise, or 4 normal sets to failure (or close), with slow full-range-of-motion reps. It takes me about 1.5 hour of workout, so about 2 hours of my day if you count the commute to the gym and a shower.
