How the Top New Year’s Resolutions Can Be Brought to the Workplace
Live Life to the Fullest
According to Time Magazine, 46% of people voted “Living Life to the Fullest” as their number one New Year’s Resolution. But, just exactly how does that translate to the workplace? Well to be honest, work is where you spend most of your waking time so if you are going to “live life to the fullest” that should be done primarily in the workplace. Setting goals that will help you reach your fullest potential at your job this year is a great way to live life to the fullest. Start by asking yourself “Where do I see my career heading by the end of 2016?” “How can I move up in the company?” “What can I do to be more efficient?” Once you’ve answered these questions, setting goals to get the fullest amount out of your productivity should be easier to handle and, if you stick with them, 2016 could be your best year yet!
Enjoy a Healthier Lifestyle
As apparent in many of our blog posts, we believe here at Restoration Media that a healthy lifestyle is essential in all aspects of life and the workplace is no different. Set goals at the office to sit less and stand more. Adjustable workstations can be a great way to stand more often and rebuild some muscle in your legs or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Going for walks during your lunch break can help relieve some stress and promote blood flow to the body. You might be surprised to see how your work benefits from being healthier at the office.
Enjoying a healthier lifestyle can automatically lead to weight loss but what is it that is weighing you down at the office? Could you possibly bringing stressors from the home into your workplace? Are you constantly logged onto Facebook or iMessages? Bringing weight into the office that isn’t work related can slow you down and make you lose focus. This year, leave that extra weight at home by setting goals to check your social media or texts when you aren’t on company time. You might be surprised by not only how much you get done but how much lighter you feel!
Save More, Spend Less
Over 62% of Americans have less than $1,000 in their savings account so this is clearly a goal that can benefit anyone. An easy way to spend less is to cut out going to lunch every day. Even if you are spending roughly $20 a week on lunch, in your career, that could cost you up to a thousand dollars a year! A great way to combat this is by finding an office lunch buddy. Take turns making lunch for each other every other day so that you can hold each other accountable and save even more!
Spend More Time with Family and Friends
This may not be an easy one to do while you are at work but the best way to make sure you can spend more time with your family and friends is by making sure that you make the most of your time at the office. As we mentioned before, unplugging from your social life while you are on the job can greatly benefit your work which means less work to do at home! Other ways you can spend time with family and friends is by participating together in exercise. Go for a walk in the morning before work with your spouse or meet a friend for spin class after you are off the clock. Working out with other people benefits everyone involved.
