Lacking Self Discipline? Here are 5 ways to develop it and reach your goals.

“Self-discipline is an undervalued trait in a modern society that wants everything now,” says Carter, co-author with his wife, Dr. Kirti Salwe Carter, of The Morning Mind: Use Your Brain to Master Your Day and Supercharge Your Life (www.themorningmind.com). “Self-discipline is the ability to motivate and coordinate our efforts to improve our quality of life, but unfortunately most people aren’t taught it.

“It is however, a skill that everyone can learn. Self-discipline is the skill that will allow you to reach any goal you set.”

Carter offers 5 ways to develop self-discipline:
- Be aware of your resistance

- Plan for every outcome

- Prepare to give something up in order to gain

- Reward yourself with self-compensation

- Break your goal down into manageable steps

Go to harlemcommunitynews.com to hear more about these tips that’ll help you gain self-discipline and help reach your goals!

In the heart of the 125th street shopping corridor, off of Malcolm X Boulevard, sits the Harlem Artisans Market (105 W. 125th).

As you walk inside the bright colors of African dress immediately catch the eye and welcome you into a space where you will find friendly local vendors of clothing, accessories, jewelry, natural skincare, hair braiding and more.

“A lot of African sculptors, painters, artists, who bring in a lot of things to New York every year don’t have a space to store items, they end up incurring expensive storage fees and lose their art. We sell their products on their behalf and give them a commission, we are also providing free storage,” said Ogutu.

Ogutu and Konde also created the indoor market as a community empowerment center. They have hosted open mics featuring local musicians and poets, film screenings and community members rent space for family birthday parties. “This space plays a bigger role than just selling stuff. It’s become a community center,” said Ogutu.

Visit the Harlem Artisan Market. Open daily from 11:00-8:00pm.

06/28/2019

Hadestown is the winner of eight 2019 Tony Awards® including Best New Musical and is now playing at the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 West 48th Street).

The acclaimed new musical is by celebrated singer-songwriter and Tony Award winner Anaïs Mitchell and developed with innovative director and Tony Award winner Rachel Chavkin.

Hadestown is the most honored show of the 2018-2019 season. In addition to the show’s eight Tony Awards, it has been honored with four Drama Desk Awards, six Outer Critics Circle Awards including Outstanding New Broadway Musical and the Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Musical. The show is already the highest-grossing musical in the history of the Walter Kerr Theatre and continues to sell out nightly.

Following two intertwining love stories — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — Hadestown invites audiences on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back. Mitchell’s beguiling melodies and Chavkin’s poetic imagination put industry against nature, doubt against faith, and fear agains love. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers, and singers, Hadestown delivers a deeply resonant and defiantly hopeful theatrical experience.

Tickets can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com, by calling (877) 250-2929, or visiting the Kerr box office.

The Women’s Forum of New York hosted the 9th Annual Elly Awards Luncheon benefiting The Education Fund of the Women’s Forum on Monday, June 17th, at The Plaza Hotel in New York City.

The awards, named for the Women’s Forum founder Elinor Guggenheimer, honor outstanding women leaders. This year marked the 32nd anniversary of the Education Fund of the Women’s Forum, which has helped over 260 women, age 35 and over, whose lives have been disrupted by extreme adversity, complete their college degrees.

“The Women’s Forum of New York is comprised of the most accomplished and successful women in the city from every professional sector. We know from our own success how critical education is, so our Education Fund is one way we ‘give back’ – helping women age 35 and over whose lives have been disrupted by extreme adversity complete their education and get their lives back on track. We hope we inspire them, because their dreams, drive, and determination certainly inspire us.” – Linda A. Willett, President of the Women’s Forum of New York.

Funding is provided by member donation and an annual fundraising event, The Elly Awards Luncheon, which honors outstanding women leaders.

06/24/2019

On June 10th the place to be for music lovers in NYC was the legendary Apollo Theater celebrating its 14th Annual Spring Gala with the theme “Icons Revisited.”

A theme that underlines, as President and CEO Jonelle Procope said, the vital role that the Apollo Theater—the soul of American culture—has been playing since its beginnings in cultivating emerging artists and launching legends.

To celebrate music icons belonging to the APOLLO heritage - Bill Withers, Aretha Franklin, Donnie Hathaway and Billie Holiday - talented young and emerging artists Estelle, Jose James, Liv Warfield, Morris Day and The Time, Kelvin Rolston Jr., Caleb Hawley and Cheryl Pepsii Riley performed their icons celebrated tunes.

As per tradition in its Spring Gala, the Apollo presented the 2019 Corporate Award to Robert F. Smith and Vista Equity Partners for their outstanding contributions to the per- forming arts, community leadership, and philanthropic support of initiatives in the African American community.

In a video message Smith - who recently relieved 400 students at Morehouse College from their loan debt – praised the Apollo for its role of socio-artistic leadership and its involvement in the community. Martin Taylor, Principal at Vista Equity Group, accepted the award expressing his profound respect for the Apollo Theater and its mission in lifting up future generations: “Stars are born and legends are made here,” he concluded.

The Apollo Performing Arts Center, with the theaters at the Victoria, is in fact scheduled to open in 2020 and it will mark the first physical expansion in the theater’s history. The aim is to build on the great legacy of the Apollo to discover, support and launch an increasing number of gifted emerging and established artists of color across disciplines.

On June 12th The Young Diplomats Magnet
Academy (P.S. 242) on 122nd street hosted their 5th Annual Art Gala at Raw Space gallery in Harlem, located at 2301 Adam Clayton Jr. Blvd.

Students grades preK to fifth off the art work they created during the school year to family,
friends and school staff.

Principal Denise Desjardin had a vision of hosting the annual art gala at an art gallery to give students the opportunity to see their work displayed in a special and professional setting. With the help of the 121st Block Association and Raw Space, this year it became a reality.

The student art projects reflect what they learn in the classroom with themes like Space, Plants, Family, New York: Then and Now, Africa, Animals, and Weather.

Principal Desjardin said the art element helps tap into the strengths of the creatively-inclined students, who may or may not excel in other subjects.

Parents like Calisher Perry were excited to see their child’s art on display in a gallery space. “This is showing him the atmosphere that he can actually put his work on display and really, I think opens a lot of doors for students,” said Perry.

The Art Gala also served as a fundraiser for the school with an admission price of $5 for adults and $3 for kids under 3, which included food and beverage. All of the students’ art work was also on sale for prices ranging from $3-5.

06/19/2019

Young women in the Bronx and Brooklyn got a chance to pick a brand new designer dress to take home thanks to Believe in Yourself. The non-profit, founded by Sam Sisakhti, has already donated dresses across 20 states since starting two years ago, in cities including Philadelphia, Chicago and Atlanta.

Sisakhti, CEO of UsTrendy, an e-commerce women’s fashion company founded in 2008, started giving away the sample dresses he would get from the 20,000 fashion designers he works with from 100 countries around the world.

“My favorite part is seeing the reactions, some of them are so excited to have a new dress for that first dance,” said Sisakhti. “Our goal is to help 10,000 kids per year and so far this year we have helped 6,000.”

Adolescents who received dresses at the Bronx Clubhouse shared their dreams with Sisakhti who said two careers of interest for the youth were fashion designing and skateboarding. When Believe in Yourself returns to the Clubhouse, planned for October, Sisakhti hopes to bring a fashion designer and professional skateboarder to speak to students.

In the future Sisahkti plans to extend the same programming to young men and create funding for tools students will need to follow dreams, such as an instrument for an aspiring musician.

06/14/2019

125th & FREEdom will make Harlem’s iconic 125th Street its stage as it explores the question: “If Harriet Tubman were alive today, how would she free Black people?” Composed of 16 movements and featuring a New Orleans-style brass band, the choreopoetic performance will take place at 16 sites as pop-up installations across the corridor of 125th Street from the East River to the Hudson River each Saturday in June, beginning on June 8. 125th & FREEdom sees a victorious, but battle-weary tribe of ancient-futuristic nomads as their long-forgotten leader, Tubman’s descendent, incites an epic journey to a land of promised liberation. Fusing song and poetry with choreography based on historic and current Black social dances, this piece will be an immersive, participatory cultural experience that is equal parts ritual performance, processional and protest.

06/12/2019

More than 26 million Americans are living with asthma, including 6.2 million children.

It is important to learn more about common triggers -- which include respiratory infections, allergens, irritants, exercise and emotions -- as well as better understand what causes your symptoms.

- Combat indoor allergens. Animal dander, dust mites and mold are common allergens found indoors that can cause asthma symptoms. Keeping a clean home can help keep the presence of such allergens in check.

- Avoid smoke and tobacco. Any kind of smoke, including tobacco smoke as well as smoke from e-cigarettes or “vaping,” are known to irritate the airways of the lung.

- Stay weather-aware. Climate change increases the risk that air pollution will worsen.

- Know your own triggers. Avoiding and controlling your asthma triggers all begins with identifying them. Work with your doctor to find out what allergens or irritants may be causing your asthma symptoms; an allergy test can help.
