A regular exercise routine is an important part of staying healthy. That being said, there can be many obstacles that prevent people from getting into good habits: a full schedule, existing commitments, or lack of access to proper facilities. One of the most important factors that can make or break your commitment to an exercise routine is your location. When we started work on the Henderson Manor condos in Ajax, we knew that we wanted to create an environment that helped people stay active, healthy, and happy. Greenvilla’s slogan is “for better lifestyles”, and activity and exercise is an important part of that. That’s why our condos are built and located in such a way to enable residents to enjoy long walks, take part in their daily exercise, and just generally stay active. Why is that so important to us? Because we know how big of a difference it makes in daily happiness, comfort, and confidence. In this blog, we will discuss just how important it is to live in an environment that promotes active living, the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, and exactly how our condos endeavour to remove obstacles that prevent the average person from engaging in exercise.
Independent Living: Your Time, Your Schedule, Your Pace
Some people are night owls, other people are early risers. Some folk are happiest when they can go for a walk and meet the sunrise, enjoying the stillness of the moment. Other people prefer the quiet dusk. A big part of Henderson Manor is that our condos enable independent living. There are few restrictions that could prevent you from being able to enjoy a walk or go for a jog whenever you please, but we have tried to eliminate these where possible. The grounds are well-lit and safe, so whenever is best for you, you will feel secure.
How Luxury Living Enables a More Healthy Lifestyle
When someone is frustrated, they might go for a run to cool their head and run off those negative emotions. Others may get on their bike, while some may prefer laps in the pool. But regardless of what is most common, science suggests that the most effective way for people to get into an exercise routine that sticks is to pick something that makes them happy and comfortable. Happier individuals tend to exercise and hit the gym more often. A team of researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center quizzed 276 students about their personalities and exercise habits. From there, they tracked their student ID cards to see who went to the gym and who stayed home. The results showed that good moods and regular exercise are strongly associated and cycles of positive outcomes get triggered.
So, what does this have to do with Henderson Manor? Every part of our condos, from the location in Ajax to the way that they are laid out are meant to create a luxurious, harmonious living environment. From our spacious floor plans to our granite countertops to our in-suite elevators, our condos are designed to be the ultimate in comfort. Your surroundings play a major part in your mood and general happiness levels. Living in such an environment is a great way to improve your day to day mood, and we hope that it will help encourage a healthy lifestyle.
Enjoy Our Spacious Grounds and Beautiful Environments
The interior of Henderson Manor is beautiful, but the exterior is equally so. Henderson Manor’s site is an entire acre of carefully groomed walkways and maintained grounds; perfect for enjoying a stroll or going for a jog. Residents can join in the traditions established by our Phase One residents; like participating in Bocce ball tournaments or bringing grandkids to the park. Add in the fact that Henderson Manor condos are in Ajax, surrounded by businesses and places you want to visit, and the health benefits become obvious. Not only do you have the space to engage in fun recreational activities in one of the nearby parks or gorgeous golf courses, but you don’t need to rely on a car to get around. Want to go window shopping or pick up something for your home? The RioCan Durham Centre is nearby, with a Home Sense, Laura, Pier One, and other useful retail stores such as Home Depot or Costco. Or if you would prefer to grab a meal, there are shopping centres in the area with great local restaurants such as Smoke’s Poutinerie, Il Fornello, Makimono Japanese Restaurant, the Keg, and Boston Pizza.
Why It’s Important to Enjoy Your Later Years With a Healthy Lifestyle
Staying physically active is important, and should not be disregarded as you settle into retirement. Study after study confirms the same fact: staying physically active not only does wonders for your physical health, but it also majorly boosts your mental health. Henderson Manor condos are designed to promote a healthy, happy lifestyle in every aspect. From your personal space to the immediate grounds, you are given the tools to live a comfortable and active life. And, as mentioned above, being in good spirits tends to create a feedback loop of exercising more.
