Life-Changing Resolutions That Last

The beginning of the year is always a great time for a fresh start, but sometimes we try to achieve too much. Here are some simple lifestyle changes that will help you ease into healthier, everyday routines.

Move around. Find the time to go outside. If you can’t fit a full workout into your busy schedule, make it a point to walk outside five minutes every day. This easy commitment could easily turn into a workout habit.

Better Sleep Not everyone is able to go to bed earlier, but the idea of leisure at bedtime by reading, playing, or watching videos on your device could be keeping you up longer instead of winding you down. Put the phone and tablets away before bedtime.

Focus on finding solutions Only focus on problems when you are determined to find a solution. If find yourself only complaining, shift your energy immediately and focus on finding a solution to the problem.

Say “no” No one wants to be perceived as the naysayer, but a firm “no” sometimes is necessary. Over committing to please others can make you miserable, so say “no” when you know agreeing to something will add pressure to yourself. See the good in life

Look for the brightest side of things Look for the brightest side of things and don’t take simple things for granted. Usually those simple things are really the essential ones for your happiness. Be grateful.

Lighten up Find time for fun times. Whether it is getting together with friends to talk and joke around, watching a comedy, or finding things that you enjoy and make you laugh is essential for your brain.

Down time is essential Avoid burning out by filling up your agenda. Having days of “nothing to do” may be hard in our fast-paced world but giving yourself one of those lazy days does the body and mind well.

Spring Fest Time

With the warmer days ahead, everyone is ready to soak up some sun and get back to the outdoors.

Music is the center of it all. We prepare our wallets to support us during every festival coming up that brings the talented musicians on-stage and the food vendors to serve their signature creations. This month is the third edition of Top Taco, an event that has grown exponentially each time.

This event, that takes place on March 14th this year, has become a great avenue for restaurants and their business owners and for the promotion of mezcal and tequila brands. Latino cooks and restaurateurs have been able to connect to the New Orleans community, and Top Taco has allowed exposure to many restaurants, including little mom and pop's that otherwise American residents of New Orleans would have never known.

With Agave Week happening March 10th to March 14th and its tasting events, seminars and parties at the ACE Hotel, Top Taco is sure becoming a New Orleans signature event. We are excited about its growth because it gives visibility to the growing Latino community and some of its great culture.

 Enjoy the wonderful Spring events and don't forget to tag VIVA NOLA in all your pictures!
