New Years Resolutions at 70 Pine
January 16th, 2017
Make 2017 your best year yet. Start feeling fulfilled by each and every day so you can stop only looking forward to the weekends. Re-commit to yourself by making a list of your (attainable) resolutions. Here are a few ideas if you’re still stumped:
Start this year by rewarding yourself for all your hard work, both professionally and personally. Whether you are on the go or at home, don’t forget that the relationship with yourself is extremely important; it’s the cornerstone of a successful and rewarding life. Treating yourself doesn’t have to be anything big – try that rich, flavorful piece of chocolate from La Maison Du Chocolate, finally plan a lunch break at Fowler & Wells, book a massage at LA PALESTRA or an in-home massage through Zeel. More interested in a Mani/Pedi? Van Court is the best in Fidi (and offers residents 70 Pine residents 20% off), but AA spa nail and Ann Huang Nail Salon (24 Maiden Lane) both offer first-rate services as well. Go ahead, you deserve it.
Spend More Time With Loved Ones
Is your work-life balance getting in the way of spending quality time with family and friends? Make 2017 the year where you dedicate more time to those who matter most to you by setting time with your loved ones. Invite friends and family to visit NYC and stay nearby at the Q&A and spend time showing them your favorite spots around town. Make your child feel like the star of the show by throwing a birthday party at the 70 Pine bowling alley. Set aside some free time and have the concierge at 70 Pine to book dinner reservations, couples massages or tickets to a new Broadway show. Open up your calendar and start blocking off time to spend with your loved ones.
Bring your giving holiday spirit into the New Year by volunteering. Everyone gets caught up in their own busy lives, that it sometimes hard to remember about others. This is one resolution that you will not regret, nor feel guilty about. Figure out what you are passionate about and leverage that passion make a positive change in your community. Located nearby, the 9/11 Memorial is always looking for volunteers, get involved in downtown alliance, or search idealist.org for thousands of in-person and remote volunteer opportunities.
You know all those places on your bucket list? Well, it’s time to start checking some off – Make this year’s motto work hard, travel harder. While it’s nice to clear your mind from the everyday hustle, traveling challenges you to meeting new people, trying new food and educating yourself to new cultures. Experience a new adventure and start planning your next trip.
Learn to Cook
It’s a known fact that New Yorkers love Seamless, but this year try to cut back on the amount of times you eat out per week. New Year, New Recipes will be easy to accomplish at 70 Pine thanks to an onsite gourmet market (coming spring 2017) at 70 Pine making grocery shopping faster and easier. Learn new recipes on blogs like The Kitchn, browse through Pinterest, or have the inspiration delivered to you with a subscription service like Blue Apron or Terra’s Kitchen where they deliver pre- measure, pre-cut healthy ingredients and great recipes at your door every week.
Getting in Shape
Every year do you find yourself telling your friends that “going to the gym more” is your New Year’s Resolution just to find yourself months later with a gym membership that has never been used? Well, you aren’t the only one – losing weight is the number 1 New Year’s resolution. This year follow these tips to stay motivated:
- Make it a habit: Just like washing your hair, working out should be done 3-4 days a week.
- Set small goals: Whether it’s losing 5 pounds by a certain date, holding a plank for 1 minute or running 3 miles- start small and rise up to it.
- Make it easy: make sure you’re working out somewhere close to home or your office
- Mix up your workout: La PALESTRA at 70 Pine offers 21,000 sq ft of training equipment from cardio and turf training to a Yoga and Pilates studio- the options are limitless.
- Get a workout buddy: Have a friend hold you to goals and gym schedules.
Now go show up, glisten and glow.
