Digital nomads are finding that in addition to co-working spaces, co-living hubs are providing them with the flexibility as well as the community feeling they sorely lack in a lifestyle that’s largely rootless.
While most freelancers and digital nomads are unlikely to admit it, a sense of belonging in an offline sense is one of the key disadvantages of a lifestyle that’s not rooted in a single location. The ability to foster and maintain lifelong friendships, relationships and a sense of belonging to a community are goals that fall by the wayside for those who enjoy the freedom of their unconventional lifestyle and career paths. This is why co-living offers such individuals the best of both worlds.
Privacy without the Isolation
Freelancers, entrepreneurs and nomads with a digital business all value the privacy and space their career offers as their time is quite literally their own and not tied down to any obligations. While apartment units do provide the privacy and seclusion content creators require, the isolation, especially during a crisis such as a global pandemic, can bring on mental health concerns. Co-living provides an antidote to this isolation and loneliness thanks to its community living spaces.
Co-living situations are also ideal in terms of finances as those who just starting out on their digital businesses and entrepreneurial efforts can enjoy the comforts of a well-kept household in co-living spaces.
Whether it’s lyf by Ascott or any other co-living community, the personal security afforded by this lifestyle surpasses those of single-owner households or apartment dwellings. In addition to the security features of the community house, the connections between residents mean there will be a sense of responsibility for one another.
