A Day in My Life | How I Work While on the Road

Full-time travel isn’t all fun and games. Quite often I have to set aside days to focus on getting some work done, so I can keep traveling. This can be work I need to do on my computer, but also work I need to do for my life — like running errands and setting time aside to recharge. These work days aren’t always my most exciting on the road, but they’re definitely a necessity to make sure my life as a whole stays on track. And today, I’m showing you exactly how a day like this goes.

This video came out a lot shorter than I thought it would. Although that’s probably for the best considering most of my day was spent on my computer — minus the time I spent telling you about my other post detailing how I travel from place to place.

In case you missed it or want another breakdown, I’ve included my typical work day schedule down below. Whether you work in an office, at home or on the road like me, let me know what your work day looks like down in the comments section!

8:00 AM — 10:00 AM — I like to lay in bed a bit after I wake up, so my mornings usually start slow. But once I do get out of bed, I like to get myself ready for the day regardless of what that day has in store for me. Getting ready helps me feel motivated to make the day a productive and successful one.

10:00 AM — I don’t always work in coffee shops, but on days when I know I need to get a lot done, sometimes it helps to be in a public space away from the temptations of just laying in my bed all day.

1:00 PM — When I can, I’ll stay at the coffee shop for lunch. It forces me to continue working into the afternoon instead of foregoing any productivity after only a few morning hours.

3:00 PM — I like to run errands on work days not only because it’s usually the best day for me to do so, but also because it’s a great way for me to break up the monotony of the day. Today I had to stop by the bank and pick up a few things from the grocery store, but these errands change from week to week.

5:00 PM — This is when a typical work day ends for most professionals and by this time, I’m pretty tired of work too. I actually got home a bit earlier than this, so I worked on a few things in my home office.

7:00 PM — If I have the space and the tools to make myself a meal, I’ll try and do that for dinner. If not, I may eat out at a local hotspot or just pick up something I know I can have a few times over to save myself some money.

10:00 PM — This is my goal bedtime, even when I’m not traveling. I may be cuddled up in bed with a good book… or I may be watching another episode of my favorite TV show, who knows?
