WHAT ARE THE KEYS TO HEALTH AND HAPPINESS?
For most, the list would include a healthy diet, regular exercise, a good night’s sleep and loved ones with whom to share their lives.
Studies have shown also that time spent pursuing hobbies and personal passions is essential for a well-rounded and satisfying life and to keep the mind sharp, body strong and spirits high.
There are many options for us to partake in the creative arts.
Art hobbies, whether sketching, painting, acting, sculpting or taking photographs, can be for individual enjoyment, gift giving or even fundraising purposes.
We’ve seen across many Palm Lake Resorts how shared creative endeavours (knitting teddy bears for donation to hospitals, crocheting poppy flowers for Anzac Day etc) have brought residents together for the benefits of others.
Other hobbies that residents share include spending time playing games or working on puzzles with family and friends.
Working on puzzles also keeps the mind sharp and alert.
Traditional games like bingo and bridge are already popular in our resorts but don’t forget those nostalgic board games that continue to challenge the mind.
Social hobbies are fantastic because they open doors for us to build friendships and it’s important to keep social skills sharp as this benefits us in many other aspects of life.
Having a wholesome laugh with others and sharing enjoyable activities keeps people actively engaged in life.
This is one of the best aspects of community lifestyle living at Palm Lake Resort – the “community”.
Outdoor hobbies are a fantastic way to get some much-needed Vitamin D and fresh air.
Beneficial outdoor activities can be as straightforward as regular walks around the resort.
Stretching and tai chi are also beneficial (to improve flexibility and mobility) and can be more enjoyable in the outdoors on a fine, sunny day.
There are so many great hobbies available for Palm Lake Resort Toowoomba Pinnacle residents to throw themselves and their time into. And remember, partaking in activities that are loved and enjoyed can help delay signs of mental and physical aging.
It’s all about keeping your mind sharp, body strong and, most importantly, your spirits high.
