Garreston Forge and Farm: New Jersey History

April 2, 2014 4:03 pm

Escape from the hustle and bustle and travel back in time to a more serene era at Garreston Forge and Farm. The Pre-Revolutionary sandstone home is the jewel in the crown of Bergen County’s historical sites. The Garretson homestead was once an extensive tract extending from the Passaic to the Saddle River and was originally settled by the Garretson family in 1719, after which, six generations made it their home.

Today the farm contains the Dutch farm museum and also sponsors and promotes educational programs that involve local history and folklore, as well as colonial agriculture, horticulture, crafts and archeology. Visit the gardens to explore over 50 varieties of medicinal and culinary herbs, butterfly gardens, fruit orchards and native plants and flowers.

Get Into a Fitness Routine With These Motivational Tips

March 26, 2014 4:03 pm

You’re certainly not the first person to admit that sticking to a fitness routine is hard, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be done. All it takes is time, patience, and a reliable fitness plan that works with your lifestyle. Here are some great tips that will help you to get in shape and feel better about your body.

1. Stop beating yourself up. Many people enter into a workout regime with a negative mindset because they feel bad about their bodies, but this isn’t a healthy way to begin. You need to think about the good things rather than focusing on the negatives.

2. Something is better than nothing. Don’t feel like your workout was a failure if you couldn’t complete it. We all have off days, and just getting onto the treadmill is a small victory in itself.

3. Make it a habit. Begin by telling yourself that you’ll work out every day for 30 days. While at first you may just be counting down until those 30 days are over, you’ll eventually become used to working out and it will become a part of your daily routine.

4. Make exercise possible. Sure, you could work out at 5 a.m. before work, but are you actually going to? Schedule your workouts at times that are accessible and easy to manage with the rest of your schedule.
