5 Ways to Maintain Goals While Traveling

2019 is here and for most, it’s an annual tradition to make new years resolutions and goals at the beginning year that most of us can’t keep. Add traveling into the mix and your goals have already reached a lower survival rate than most. Your lifestyle and traveling shouldn’t get in the way of your goals and aspirations, that’s why we at The Gypsy Nurse have 5 tips to help you stay on track of your goals all year long.

1.) Utilize Apps On Your Smartphone

There are hundreds of apps out there that will keep you on track. Thanks to technology there is literally an app for almost any goal you have such as calorie counters for fitness and weight loss, meditation apps for relaxation, gratitude apps to keep you in check and so much more! Some may cost a dollar or two but in the long run, it’s well worth the cost. What’s also great about these apps are they send you a notification to your phone daily to remind you to keep up with your goals!

2.) Tell People Your Goals

There’s no better way to stay on track than having someone constantly remind you that you are working towards a goal. Tell friends, family members, or co-workers about your goals and ask them to get on you when you’re slacking or ask them to ask you how your goals are coming along every once in a while. It’s easier to stay on track when you know people are watching.

3.) Make A Bullet Journal

A fun way to stay organized and express creativity easy is to start a Bullet Journal. These are easy to carry around and won’t take up too much space when you move from place to place.

4.) Find A Buddy

Find someone who has the same goals as you and hold each other accountable. It’s much easier to achieve a goal when you have someone else doing it with you. Can’t find a buddy nearby? You can always have a long-distance goal buddy and check-in via phone or social media!

5.) Be Flexible

One of the first things you learn as a travel nurse is to be flexible. This goes the same for goals. Achieving a goal does not have a cookie-cutter path. If it did we’d all have 6 packs and a million dollars in our savings accounts. There will be setbacks, there will be discouragement, there will be a lack of time but if you stay determined on your goals and flexible with your methods there will be huge wins!
