Corporate housing can provide a comfortable and convenient temporary living solution for business travelers, remote workers, and anyone in need of a short-term housing solution. But while these housing solutions are comfortable and welcoming to the frequent traveler, changes to routines, schedules, and living situations can stress most anyone quite a bit. That stress can be compounded when trying to adhere to rigid expectations like resolutions.
Resolutions are hard enough to follow when you have a daily routine and accommodations. But what about when you are uprooted from those daily routines and familiarity?
Following through on your resolutions isn’t impossible while you are away from the conveniences of home. In fact, with a few simple tricks and trips, keeping to your resolutions can be pretty straightforward. If you’re currently living in corporate housing and have made some resolutions to improve your lifestyle, here are some tips to help you stick to them.
Make Your Resolutions Specific and Realistic
When setting your resolutions, make sure they are specific and realistic. Instead of setting a vague goal like “eat healthier,” set a specific goal like “cook at least one healthy meal per day.” Setting clear goals will help you clearly understand what you want to achieve and allow you to measure your progress. Also, consider your current situation and resources to ensure your goals are achievable. With a specific goal, you’re more likely to succeed at maintaining your resolutions through attainable expectations.
Track Your Progress
Tracking your progress is a great way to stay motivated and accountable. You can create a chart or use an app to track your progress toward your goals. Being able to see your progress can be a powerful motivator and help you stay on track. If you notice that you’re falling behind, use it as an opportunity to reassess your goals and make necessary adjustments. Remember your specific goal, and don’t feel like you lost the war because of a small battle. We all have our moments of weakness, but it’s important to remember that they are only moments that don’t define our choices afterward.
It’s easy to forget about your resolutions when you’re busy with work and other responsibilities. To help you stay on track, set reminders for yourself. You can use your phone or computer to set reminders for specific times of the day or week. We set alarms for all sorts of things throughout our day, to wake up, to remind us about meetings, or to keep up with events. Why wouldn’t we use an alarm o remind us to take time for ourselves or to stay on top of our mental, physical, or spiritual health? Seeing reminders will help keep your goals in the front of your mind and motivate you to keep going.
Find an Accountability Partner
Having someone to hold you accountable can be a great way to stick to your resolutions. Find someone who shares your goals or someone who is supportive of your efforts. Check-in with them regularly to update them on your progress and seek their support when needed. You may find that this can also help your social well-being. Getting out and finding people with similar interests as you can keep your mind sharp and excited for interactions.
Celebrate Small Wins
Remember to celebrate the small wins. Even if you’re not where you want to be, take time to acknowledge your progress. Celebrating small wins can boost your confidence and motivate you to keep going. Every step forward is progress; you should be proud of the advancement.
