Sunlight and Fresh air are hard to beat!
Spring is here and the blistering winter is finally behind us. Flowers are in bloom and will soon fill the atmosphere with that fresh and sweet aroma of spring. Sunlight shines and the air begins to warm, bringing happiness, beauty, and joy all around. This month’s pillar of successful aging is, SUNLIGHT and FRESH AIR are hard to beat! It focuses on these two natural gifts that provide us with countless benefits. We welcome spring that comes with the abundance of sunshine and fresh air, with the rooted belief that they’re truly hard to beat.
Getting a breath of fresh air increases oxygen levels and makes you feel energized and awake. All it takes is a few deep breaths and your mind will be clearer, sharper, calmer, and ultimately more relaxed! From promoting the growth of plants to keeping people warm, sunlight is essential to human health and well-being. Direct sunlight is our body’s main source of Vitamin D, which is known for fighting off osteoporosis, cancer and depression. Even just a few moments of sun exposure each day might just be the pick-me-up we didn’t know we needed.
In the weeks ahead, the programming team has included the following activities in the calendar:
- Walks in the park and along the paths of the beautiful lakes in our area
- Intergenerational scavenger hunts in the park
- Exercise classes centered around breathwork and sunshine
- Entertainment in the beautiful outdoor areas around the Village
- Gardening club activities
- Mindful breathing outside and around the Village, and much much more!
Our valued residents have the chance to enjoy the abundance of sunlight and fresh air to the maximum. At Harbour Landing Village we’ve taken the provision of these two natural gifts to be of primary importance and the overall focus for the month of May.
