Diane Schwartz  on the Impact of Stress

 Diane Schwartz, MD, Internist at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, sat with Joanna Gagis on “A Life & Living Moment” to discuss how stress impacts the body both physically and mentally.

High blood pressure is an example of a physical ailment that we see as a result of stress. “If somebody has a family history or a genetic predisposition,” Schwartz says, “this could be brought out by being stressed all the time.”

“Also, clinical depression, anxiety, panic disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder are brought to a level with which it will be needed to be treated with medication,” Schwartz  states.

#HipNJ’s own Lisa Marie Latino was treated to a new cut and color by a great team of stylists who worked for hours to transform her look just in time for 2018.

For her color, Stephanie Lopez used a highlighting technique which brought out the cinnamon tones in Latino’s hair, creating a multi-dimensional look.

For her cut, the stylist kept it simple by allowing her hair to stay long and soft. She trimmed the ends and used a curling iron to add some gentle waves for a feminine touch.

The final product was a glamorous look that had everyone excited. Call the salon today at 973-762-1212 to schedule an appointment to get your new look for 2018.

Music Monday: The Happy Fits

It is #MusicMonday and #HipNJ is here to tell you about The Happy Fits, a new indie-rock band with an alternative flair from the Garden State.

Calvin Langman – Vocals, Cello

Luke Davis – Drummer

Ross Monteith – Vocals, Guitar

Although they went to the same high school, the band mates didn’t know each other until they heard from friends that they all played music and were looking to start a band.  What started off as playing cover songs turned into writing original music and playing concerts across Jersey.

After uploading music to Spotify for friends and family, The Happy Fits were discovered by their now manager, who scored them a spot on the “Fresh Finds” playlist.

Be on the lookout for their upcoming album, which is set to be released in February. In the meantime, you can listen to their songs on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Bandcamp, and Amazon

Check out their studio interview and their performance of their original song  “While You Fade Away” above.
