Here are a few tips we’ve picked up on how to ensure that your physical health is a positive influence to happiness and a good mood.
- Eat More Nutritious Whole Foods.
Keep your focus on lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and non-processed foods. It’s pretty common sense that a bowl of salad with lots of leafy greens is better for you than a baloney sandwich on processed white bread, so focus on whole food nutrition. Always enjoy what’s in front of you at our many potlucks, happy hours and parties, but just remember to make up for that during the rest of the week…you want to still have fun and not overly restrict yourself.
- Walking and Running for health.
At Laurel Springs, we have many walking trails and great topography to enjoy a stroll around the community. Get out and enjoy our trails, water features, your neighbors and even drop by the clubhouse to say hello to our friendly staff! Keep yourself moving and even invest in a Fitbit or use your smartphone app to track and motivate you to continue your progress with walking and physical activity.
- Fellowship and Friends.
We all know that loneliness is no fun. Did you know that it is also a dangerous threat to your physical health? Don’t let separation from friends and family cause a decline in our mental and emotional well-being. Get involved with our community activities! We have a full social calendar and social activity staff that can keep you involved with our community, new friends and enhances your feelings of belonging. It’s important to get out and about and enjoy the community here that you have chosen to make you like your new home!
