For many of us, the word “travel” invokes images of white sand beaches, adventuring through Europe, or even spending time with family in a different part of the country. On the other hand, for the billions working in corporate America, travel often invokes images of briefcases, meetings, and working meals. In 2016, 307 billion dollars were spent on travel. That much, or more, has likely already been spent in 2017 with less than a quarter left in the year.
Travel – a word that represents fun, new experiences, excitement, relaxing and much, much more. Yet, add another word in front of travel and it takes on a whole new meaning – business travel.
Traveling for business isn’t always quite as, shall we say, relaxing as leisure travel, but it’s an important type of travel nonetheless.
Making the most of your business travel trip can be challenging at times, as you’ve likely experienced. Not every destination or hotel is optimized to support both leisure and business travelers, and that can take a toll on the business travelers!
We all know the drill – resolve to improve in some way, or work towards a certain goal, in the new year. Yet, for many of us, that prized resolution never comes to fruition. Once the excitement of the new year begins to wear off, and the reality of work and stress sets in, it can be challenging to keep up with a demanding resolution. Resolutions that involve dieting, weight loss, learning a new language, etc.
Consider this – in today’s world traveling often is common for many people. Whether you travel for work, to visit family, or for pleasure, being on the go isn’t always convenient for many resolutions. In fact, traveling is typically an enjoyable experience, a time when we wish to release the need to do anything specific, and just live in the moment.
Which brings us to our main point – how does one keep a new year’s resolution while traveling?
The answer? Create a travel-friendly resolution!
