New Year’s Resolutions


Can you believe another year has flown by?

It’s time to start thinking about your New Year ResolutionsNew Year’s resolutions, if you are a fan of making them.

Most people’s resolutions revolve around a healthier lifestyle, especially after all that indulgent holiday eating with friends and family. One thing you should keep in mind is that everything in life should be enjoyed with a bit of moderation. That way some things that you might think are bad for you, shouldn’t be completely off limits. That’s the good news! Here are a few fun resolutions you should add to your wellness plan that aren’t a complete bummer. In fact, you might actually be excited about a few of these.


Resolution #1: Have a Glass Of Wine Per Day

The Mayo Clinic even recommends that drinking a glass of wine per day can be beneficial for your heart. Moderate wine drinking does have health reasons, such as reducing the risk of strokes, heart disease, and diabetes. So what better place to have that moderate, but tasty glass of wine then Ayza Wine and Chocolate Bar.

As a pioneer in the concept of a wine and chocolate bar in NYC, this is a fine place to explore all your daily wine options. The Fleur Du Cap Syrah from South Africa is a lush red to try that pairs perfectly with what your next resolution should be.

Resolution #2: Dark Chocolate Should Be a Daily Indulgence

Completely depriving yourself of all the good, sweet stuff in life is no way to live. Having a little bit of chocolate everyday can help keep you on track with your New Year’s wellness plans. Make the resolution to have a little chocolate anytime you want some. At Ayza the perfect one to have on hand for a daily nosh is Jacques Torres, “80 % dark chocolate ganache.” This is chock full of antioxidants that can also help to lower blood pressure.

Resolution #3: Move More and Worry Less

Another resolution to commit to is to move more and worry less. Easier said than done, but one form of exercise that helps is yoga. Mind, body, and soul doing a yoga practice each day, either at home or with a class, can help your circulation, flexibility, and calm your mind in a real way.

If you have never done yoga before, get the beginner poses down, so you get used to the feel of it. Yoga Journal online offers a terrific “Yoga 101” guide that will get you started on the road to a new year focused on your own well being.
