For some, it may seem as if New Year’s resolutions and failure go hand-in-hand. Instead of resolving to not make resolutions for 2016, change the types of resolutions you make. Focus on making positive resolutions instead of negative ones. This means creating realistic goals that include actions that you want to perform. Instead of focusing on stopping certain behaviors, think of ways to develop new positive habits. Then create a plan and surround yourself with a supportive environment.
New Year’s Resolutions that You Can Achieve
- Travel stress-free: Resolving to stress less in 2016 is too great of a challenge on its own because you never know what life is going to throw your way. Instead, make it your goal to experience less stress in certain areas of your life. If travel is a stressor in your life, alter the experience with aircraft charter. Private jet flights never take off without you if you’re running late to the airport. Plus, you never have to wait in a line, worry about connecting flights, or deal with missing luggage. Private flights eliminate nearly everything that you hate about air travel.
- Eat healthier, especially while travelling: Travelling makes it easy to cheat on a healthy diet. This year, plan your meals in advance to stay on track with your goals. First, start with what you’ll eat during a private flight. If you enjoy charter travel, ask the aircraft management company about its catering options, review the menus, and choose meals and snacks that align with your diet. If you own your own plane, let your flight attendant know about your new dietary preferences so she or he can order foods that will set you up for success.
- Be more productive during flights: If you need to work on the go, the ultimate way to do this is to fly private. Rather than working the entire flight, which will lead to burnout and procrastination, set up a routine that you follow on every flight. A routine may begin with having a cup of coffee when the plane takes off, followed by working for 45 minutes and taking a 30-minute break to eat and stretch. Work for another 45 minutes and take another break to stretch and do something that you enjoy.
- Read for pleasure: A private flight is the perfect time to catch up on recreational reading. Make a wish list of all the books you want to read and set aside 30 minutes three times a week to read for fun, even if you have to mark this time as an appointment in your calendar.
- Explore more: It’s easy to get stuck in an unfulfilling routine. This year, make it your goal to visit a new place at least once a quarter, even if it’s just for a weekend. The beauty of flying private is that can you book flights according to your schedule, making taking the time to explore more convenient.
- Spend more time with your family: Between professional success and personal pursuits, family completes your life. This year, resolve to visit extended family at least once. A private jet makes it simple and convenient to catch up with cousins over dinner, take your parents to see a show, go on a weekend camping trip in the desert with the kids, and return to work without skipping a beat.
