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

PARK VIEW ACADEMY SIGNS LEASE FOR 4,600 SQ.-FT. OF SPACE AT VANTAGE IN DOWNTOWN JERSEY CITY

PVA LogoNew Daycare Facility Will Open in Early 2019 at 45-Story Liberty Harbor North Building

Park View Academy, an innovative new daycare facility, has signed a lease to open its first location at Vantage, the luxury high-rise rental building in downtown Jersey City, N.J.’s Liberty Harbor North neighborhood.

Slated to open in Early 2019, the new early childhood school will serve both residents of Vantage and the community-at-large, according to Fisher Development Associates, which is developing the 448-home waterfront building overlooking the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty and Liberty Harbor Marina.

Park View Academy’s mission is to create a safe, educational, and friendly environment for the children under their care. They believe every child is unique and their growth depends on patience, understanding encouragement, and lots of love! Every day will bring a new and exciting challenge for your little one to experience. The center is the first collaboration between two local veterans of Hudson County child care, partners Yeon Benkovitz, owner of Lucie Goosie Toddler Enrichment in Jersey City, and Diane Branco, owner of World of Wonder daycare center (WOW) and Wowkids, LLC in Hoboken, NJ.

“It’s no secret Jersey City’s demographic is shifting to include more and more young families and there’s a growing need for high quality child care services,” Mrs. Benkovitz says.  “We’re establishing Park View Academy to help fill this demand.  We hope to offer parents a valuable service in a state-of-the-art facility that draws on the expertise of not only two local child care professionals, but also two experienced Jersey City moms.”

Vantage Building Rendering (1)Park View Academy will occupy approximately 4,600 square feet of ground floor retail space at Vantage.  The facility will feature a large play area to strongly encourage a high level of child interaction.

“We searched neighborhoods in downtown Jersey City for nearly three years trying to find the right location,” Mrs. Benkovitz adds.  “We were fortunate Vantage was brought to market by Fisher Development Associates and chose the building for our debut facility because the space is beautiful.  We also love the neighborhood feel and its location near the light rail and right off Marin Boulevard makes its accessible for parents.”

The 45-story Vantage boasts approximately 5,000 square-feet of supportive retail space.  The LEED-certified building at 33 Park View Avenue has been an important ingredient in Liberty Harbor North’s growth into a 21st Century urban destination where inspired living spaces blend with community services and shops to create a vibrant live-work environment for today’s urban professional.

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.
