A new years resolution is the promise to start doing something positive or to stop doing something negative at the start of a new year. The practice dates back to ancient Babylon and has continued in various forms clear up to present day. Despite the popularity of making them, as much as 88% of people do not succeed. Fortunately there are a few simple techniques for improving the odds.
Start thinking about the changes you want to make ahead of time rather than at the end of the year. Having time to mull it over will help with picking new years resolutions that are realistic and achievable.
Ample time will make it easier to formulate an effective strategy. Will your resolution require more time, rescheduling or a lifestyle change like time at the gym and a membership? Start anticipating those things before they are needed so you can start your resolution with the new year instead of using the new year to prepare.
Perhaps the most difficult part is actually incorporating the changes you want to make. A very effective way to do this is by setting small, realistic short-term goals instead of large milestones that can seem intimidating. For example, someone that wants to quit smoking cigarettes might gradually reduce the number they smoke in a day. Someone wanting to get fit should try mild exercise and slowly increase intensity as they feel comfortable.
People have been making new years resolutions for thousands of years and now more people than ever do they have a hard time seeing them through. Giving yourself ample time, creating a plan, and setting small goals are some simple ways to increase the odds of success.

This Thanksgiving I will be thankful for a number of things, but none more important than my family. Your family is, of course, an extension of yourself, and when you can’t help yourself, they are there to help you, as my family has done for me so many times.
When I have experienced difficulties at work, I knew that my family would be there. When I suffered an automobile accident, they came to assist me. When I was ill, they were there to provide comfort. When I felt that others were against me, I knew that I could turn to my family for peace and strength. This Thanksgiving, I will be able to share my thankfulness with members of my family at the same time I offer my thankfulness to them.
I am thankful for my career, which has blossomed over the years. I am fortunate that the education I received so many decades ago has not gone to waste, and that I am instead able to use the knowledge gained during those years of school to achieve and maintain a profitable career. Higher education can be costly, but what it offers in return will pay back the investment made many times over.
Finally, I am thankful for my health, which has been remarkably good over the years and will hopefully remain that way long into the future. Your health is part of you, and when it goes bad, it affects everything else in your life. I know others around me who have experienced serious illnesses, from which some never recovered. I owe my good health to the fact that I take care of myself by watching my diet and, of course, by not smoking.
Family, career and health. These are the things for which I will be giving thanks this Thanksgiving. What are you thankful for this year?
As midnight on October 31 draws near, people everywhere prepare to celebrate Dia de los Muertos or the Day of the Dead. This festive event is one of our favorite occasions at Mattito’s. That’s because we love any excuse to enjoy our favorite food and drinks while also sharing stories about our loved ones who have passed on.
The celebration of Dia de los Muertos can be traced back thousands of years. Its observance is closely connected to the Mexican tradition of choosing to celebrate the lives lived by those who have passed on rather than fearing death. To that end, the way that we celebrate the Day of the Dead now means plenty of festivity and fun rather than being a somber occasion.
From midnight on October 31 through November 2, those who observe the holiday believe that the souls of the departed are allowed to wander close to the places they once lived. To celebrate the homecoming, elaborate altars are constructed and special foods are prepared. It is during this holiday that pan de muerto is served and sugar skulls are used as decoration. Friends and family gather at the grave sites of deceased loved ones to drink, feast and tell tales that seem to bring the departed one back to life.
Celebrants leave la ofrenda, or offerings, at the cemetery. These are often preferred food and drinks that were a favorite of the loved one. These offerings are meant to draw the souls nearer while the colorful zempasuchitl, a yellow flower like a marigold, marks the pathway to the grave.
At Mattito’s, we like to think we specialize in bringing families together every day. Whether it’s the Day of the Dead or just an ordinary Tuesday, we’ll always be offering superior food and drink in a convivial atmosphere.

Birthdays in Mexico are more than just another day, they are are a time for great celebration. Families, both from near and far, get together along with friends and neighbors for a day of great festivities and traditions. One tradition that is very important for Mexican culture, is the pinata. The pinata is a clay pot or figure of paper machie decorated and built to look like a particular festive object or animal. It symbolizes happiness and joy and is therefore crafted with bright colors and filled with candies, treats, and small toys. Party goers take turns trying to hit and break open the pinata in order to enjoy its spoils.
Another important tradition celebrated during birthdays in Mexico, is the tradition of food, most importantly the birthday cake. A great meal is created to honor the person’s birthday. Common foods for a birthday party are arroz con leche (Mexican rice pudding), tortillas with salsa, churros, caramel flan, and taquitos (rolled tacos). Drinks are also important, tequilas and margaritas are usually enjoyed in celebration. Our catering service can provide a delicious feast along with drinks for your family and friends to enjoy.
For birthdays in Mexico, the cake is a central part of traditions. The chanting of the song “La Mordida,” meaning the Bribe, is typically done as the individual for whom the party is for takes the first bite of the cake with their hands tied behind their back. The individual’s friends and family watches, enjoying the humor of the situation. Getting together friends and family are the most important part of birthday celebrations in Mexico, so location is a vital aspect of the celebration. Our party room would be an ideal place to house your friends and family for your next birthday celebration.
