Setting New Year’s Resolutions: Tips for Travel Nurses

This article provided by: Titan Medical

With the new year right upon us, you probably have some resolutions that you want to keep in mind for 2020. Maybe it’s adapting to a healthier lifestyle? Or it could be something as simple as being more organized. Sticking to your New Year’s resolutions will keep you feeling rejuvenated and ready to kick start your weekly goals. To get thinking about what you can do to make 2020 your best year yet, here are some ideas to help you be successful.

Resolutions for Travel Nurses

Adapting to a healthier lifestyle:

While a healthier lifestyle might seem like a difficult task, taking baby steps will ensure happy, healthy habits in your future. You’re an avid soda drinker? Try drinking flavored seltzer water instead. Do you go out to eat for most meals? Cut it down to maybe 2 or 3 times a week with help from creating a monthly meal plan. It’s important to get excited about new, healthy recipes to try and once you’ve gotten into your routine, you’ll be adjusted in no time!

Getting into shape:

Instead of joining a gym that you know for a fact you won’t go to all the time, try doing an intro class to that gym to see if it’s something you would like doing. Some classes to consider would be CrossFit, hot yoga, pilates, etc. It’s about finding what works for you and your hectic schedule. If you are not able to join a gym, try streaming some workout videos on your TV in the morning. They work well for their convenience and are friendly for any budget.

Being more organized:

Ever have an itch to buckle down and get organized? Some ways to do so might be to declutter your storage unit, go through closets and cabinets, shred old mail that is piling up on counter tops and clean the nooks and crannies in your home. These cleaning tasks don’t need to be done at the very beginning of the year, but make it a gradual process. Getting around to tidying up will make for a cleaner, healthier environment and you will feel cozier in your space.

Trying one new thing each month:

Is there something that you have always wanted to try or see, but you just never got around to doing it? Whether it’s tasting a new dish at a local restaurant or going to an art gallery – it’ll be a fun and new experience for you to share alone or with loved ones. This is an idea that works well being a traveling professional as you can meet new friends while trying out new things.

Spending time with family and friends:

Everyone has a busy schedule and it can be difficult to find times to gather. To visit family and friends more often, attempt setting up dates to get together a couple weeks in advance that way everyone can ensure they have the time to meet up. This will also leave your schedule feeling less hectic as you have specific plans in place versus last-minute arrangements. New Year’s Resolutions are exciting and the key to keeping them obtainable is making sure they are simple and something that you know you could stick to. If it helps, make a list of what you want to achieve in the new year and add something else after you successfully fulfill one. Make 2020 your best year yet!
