New Year At The Strand

Ready for a fresh start? After months of uncertainty and adjusting to the “new normal”, many of us are more eager than ever for a reset — both mentally and physically. Here at The Strand Luxury Apartments, we believe that part of setting yourself and your home up for success in 2023 starts with being intentional about how you use your space. Focusing on practical changes like organization, technology utilization, healthy activities/habits, and self-care practices — can bring clarity to the New Year ahead while helping optimize productivity. Read on to learn simple steps on how to reset for a productive 2023.

Focus On Your Health

The best place to start your year off right is to assess your energy levels and adjust as necessary – get enough sleep, drink water, and move your body. Take time out for yourself or pursue hobbies that bring you joy, allowing you some mental respite from all the day-to-day grind.

Achieving a healthy lifestyle is important for both body and mind, and there are many advantages that come with it. Eating the right food helps to keep your body energized, while regular physical activity helps to reduce stress and encourages both physical and mental well-being. The Strand’s fully equipped fitness center is the perfect place to jumpstart this journey, offering our residents the opportunity to explore and test their strengths.

In addition, residents of The Strand offer spacious gourmet kitchens with quartz countertops and state-of-the-art appliances, making it easier to cook delicious, nutritious meals from home. You can shop for fresh and sustainable produce from the local farmers market at Midtown Farmers Market, which opens every Saturday from 8 AM to 1 PM.

Through these two things combined – working out at The Strand’s fitness center and eating healthy food – it’s possible to start a healthier lifestyle journey today.

Reset For A Productive 2023

Resetting for a productive 2023 doesn’t have to be complicated or take too much time. All it takes is a few adjustments that can help you refocus and stay motivated throughout the year.

  • Organize – Working on projects or studying with a cluttered desk can be overwhelming and lead to procrastination. It can also cause distractions, making it hard to focus on the task at hand. Dedicating a specific space in your home for work and organization is key to productivity. Set aside an area that has everything you need for studying or working that is easily accessible, such as a comfortable chair, plenty of light, and all the necessary tools. Eliminate clutter from this space by storing unused items away. Creating an organized workspace helps keep productivity levels high so that working from home no longer feels like a chore!
  • Plan – Carve out specific goals and plans for yourself, then break those down into achievable steps. Invest in a planner, journal, or calendar and write it all down!  This will add structure and organization to keep you on track. It’s also important to create a regular schedule for yourself — setting designated times for work, relaxation, exercise, and other activities.
  • Vision Board – Working on a vision board could also help you orientate your goals and stay focused on the bigger picture throughout the entire year. Setting intentions that center around fulfilling tangible objectives can bring about sustainable change within your life.

Finally, try setting up some non-work related rewards as incentives when completing your various tasks; treat yourself with something special when you reach a milestone! You can treat yourself to something sweet like delicious cookies from Crumbl Cookies, located in West Sacramento! When done correctly this simple reset can help set you up for an incredibly successful 2023.
