Digital nomads are quite literally sailing into the sunset, as targeted cruises become more and more popular. But is it really cost effective and workable to live a life on the high seas?

Earlier this year, The Telegraph published an article with figures working out that living on a cruise ship is cheaper than living in London. Of course, digital nomads have known for many years now that living in most countries is cheaper than living in London, which is why we hang out in countries like Thailand and Bulgaria, rather than London and New York.

I’ve worked for and with dozens of companies around the world, and I never cease to be baffled by the diversity in professional standards I witness. For the few years that I was a foreign English language teacher, no two schools were ever alike in their expectations of how I should teach or my role in their hierarchy.

And that’s before your first cup of coffee.

Studies have shown that, in order to win at life, you need to win your morning. And with a little help from technology, mindfulness, and good food, you can start to take back your morning and your life.

If you’re anything like me, the only thing that’s keeping you from living a life of epic adventure is your account balance. I was once so poor that my bank reported ‘suspicious behaviour’ when my mother deposited a chunk of cash for my birthday! Apparently that was enough to trigger the alarm at Barclays. Surely this is the financial equivalent of bitchy backtalk?
