Since becoming a digital nomad my relationship with my own body has changed. I feel my body far more. And I understand what those feelings mean more than I used to.
I used to eat on a schedule so I never really reached a point of hunger. Now I eat when I’m hungry.
I used spend most of my time indoors, in climate controlled environments, never really feeling hot or cold. I was hot or cold, but I just didn’t feel it.
I used to walk to get somewhere. Now I walk not to go anywhere, just to feel myself walking. I’m more aware of the stones beneath my feet and stretch behind my knee as I take a step.
My bodily functions were habit. But now they are more considered, more intentional.
