12 Ways to Ease into Spring Wellness

unspecified-15-682x1024by Stefani Ellenbecker –  Spring is upon is in a big way, and naturally, with the change of seasons, we are all looking to spruce up our body, mind, home and heart. Sometimes it’s not about the big changes but more about the little ways we can implement wellness into our everyday lifestyle that really makes the long-lasting difference. I asked several W&D contributors how they plan to get into a wellness groove this April and they shared a few simple ways they are clearing out their head space, exercising more, eating healthier and getting outdoors to grab some fresh air. We hope this post motivates you and gives a few pointers on how to improve your health this spring. We would love to hear in the comments below what your wellness plans are as the weather warms up!

Bridget Borden, Studio 125 Manager: “I’m trying to incorporate wellness into my daily routine – I drink a mix of hot water, apple cider vinegar and lemon in the morning, matcha green tea throughout the day and hot water with Reishi in the evenings.  Also, I love my barre classes and am full into any challenges they offer.”

Colleen Eversman of  2ndTruth: “I’ve been going to The Firm and spinning at least twice a week + going to yoga in-between. I’ve also been trying to eat less bread and dairy (I did the Whole 30 and discovered that bread and dairy make me super bloated). Drinking at least my body weight in ounces of water – it turns out, staying well hydrated helps my skin not freak out. And, being outside with Ellie (my pup) to run her for at least 30 mins a day. It’s great for her health and surprisingly restoring for me to be outside.”  FULL ARTICLE

Taste of Weehawken event to be held at new hotel

dgbj_04weetaste15_01via The Hudson Reporter – Thirty-two local restaurants, eateries, and caterers will provide samples of their delectable dishes at the 18th annual Taste of Weehawken fundraiser on April 24, taking place at the not-yet-open Marriott Hotel on the waterfront.

Proceeds from the annual culinary fundraiser will go toward programming and facility upgrades to the Weehawken Free Public Library.

“It’s a great community event,” said Mayor Richard Turner. “It gets everybody together from all over town and raises funds for the library, which is a mainstay of the community. It’s really a great night to have great food from a lot of great restaurants and vendors.”

The event runs from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Marriott hotel at 500 Port Imperial Blvd., sixth floor. The property, near the NY Waterway terminal, offers spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline.

Phenomenal food

Roughly 400 food enthusiasts are expected to attend the Taste this year.

Both high profile and emerging local restaurants will participate, featuring American, Cuban, Italian, Indian, Japanese, Greek, Mexican and many other cuisines.

Drinks and desserts will be offered, including cakes, cupcakes, ice cream, artisan chocolates, and other confections.

“I am looking forward to everything. All the food is really great,” said Turner. “The deserts are all very dangerous.”

Also on hand will be aspiring young chefs from the Weehawken High School Culinary Arts Program. This year 10 students were chosen to participate. They will serve veggie buffalo “meatballs” with a blue cheese dipping sauce and a ricotta cheesecake with mixed berries for dessert, according to the class’s teacher Joseph Mantineo.

Pale blues and serene greens can really change the mood of a space. No need to break out the paintbrush or buy a new sofa to get those peaceful, chill Spring vibes. Instead, focus on layering colored accents into your existing decor—adding a blue frame or candle on a living room console, placing a porcelain glass vase full of fresh flowers artfully on a mantel, and showcasing crystal topped containers can all enhance your room’s positive energy.

2018-04-05_11-23-16Decluttering isn’t always on everyone’s list for spring cleaning — it’s not really a cleaning task is it? But if your main goal is feeling like your home is refreshed and renewed, then taking some time to purge and organize is certainly a step in the right direction.

I’m afraid to tell you that there’s no single magic trick that will work for every space and every person who wants to achieve a lifestyle that’s a little lighter on stuff. The best way to do it is just to do it. Get started. Declutter one area of your home today.

“It is an honor and a privilege to be part of a great production, here in Bergen County, and sing the role of Emperor Altoum, sung in the past by the greatest comprimarios.  Being a part of this production of Turandot brings back many memories being part of this opera at the Teatro Petruzzelli in Bari, Italy in a chorus of over 100 and assimilating Puccini’s great music on that enormous stage,” said Simone.
