We all know that 2020 has been a challenging year.
AND TRYING TO THINK OF A NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION CAN SEEM A BIT DAUNTING.
But Boston Laundry Inc. has a few ideas for your 2021 vision.
It might sound silly, but you can’t wash all of your laundry in one giant load. Nothing would get properly cleaned, you’d overload your machine, and maybe even break it. In our opinion, the same applies to New Years’ resolutions. Making one big resolution for the entire year is a bit unrealistic and can feel overwhelming.
So how do you make and keep your New Years’ resolutions? Studies show it’s best to take things slow. Create positive daily habits over time, and you’ll have a much more realistic approach to your goals.
Need some help creating your resolution? Here are some daily habits for a more productive and positive year.
DITCH THE MULTITASKING.
Do you check your email while you eat your breakfast? Us too. But it turns out multitasking can do more harm than good. Switch it up and try single-tasking; take the time to do a single task with your full attention. If you need more time in the day to take it slow, Boston Laundry Inc. can handle your laundry tasks for you. Our pick up and drop off service is quick and easy to schedule.
ASK FOR HELP WHEN YOU NEED IT.
Even if you’re staying home, you still have to manage to-do lists, video calls, chores, and more. Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need support. Delegating tasks is a great way to ensure everything gets done without the risk of burn out. And Boston Laundry Inc. is here if you need some help with that big pile of laundry or dry cleaning. We provide 24-hour service, so your Zoom shirt will be ready for your next meeting.
KEEP YOUR HOME CLEAN, ONE ROOM AT A TIME.
A cluttered desk leads to a cluttered mind. The same goes for your home. A messy or dirty living environment can affect your mental health. If you don’t have the time or energy for one big clean up session, try to target one area a day. For example, clean the kitchen on Wednesdays, pick up your bedroom on Thursdays, and so on. This practice will keep your home tidy without taking away from the rest of your day.
CREATE MORNING AND EVENING ROUTINES.
Everyone’s schedule shifted a bit with the pandemic. And it can be easy to fall into poor sleeping patterns when your routine is affected. But staying up late and waking up halfway through the day impacts your productivity and mood. So take time to create daily schedules that keep you on track. Avoid doom scrolling in bed, try stretching first thing in the morning, or set aside time to meditate at the end of the day. And if you’re looking for a routine for your laundry needs, Boston Laundry Inc. provides weekly subscriptions that fit your schedule.
New Year’s resolutions can seem invigorating, but it’s hard to stick to unrealistic goals. So take it one step at a time.
Set up realistic weekly or monthly goals and you’ll build lifelong habits that last past January. We’ll be here to handle your laundry while you conquer the world, one day at a time.
