If you aren’t already living in a Florida active adult community, leave the rat race behind and join in the banquet of fun that’s created just for you. It’s easy to let go, feel good about yourself and have fun at Lake Ashton.
Research has proved it: Fun keeps us young; stress actually ages us – and this is one prescription you don’t need a doctor for. (When is the last time your doctor wrote a prescription that simply read, “Have fun!”)
Fun stimulates our minds and is a natural high. A good belly laugh is infectious and lights up the room. After all, laughter is the best medicine and has no side effects.
It is easy at an Florida active adult community, where you find yourself looking forward to each day and all the activities that open up like a banquet. At Lake Ashton, you can choose from A to Y – arts and crafts (with a kiln!) to yoga lessons, and everything in between.
Believe it or not, exercise can actually be fun, and when it is, it doesn’t seem like exercise at all. All that good-for-you sweating and panting is more enjoyable with readily available friends eager to join you in Lake Ashton’s exercise and fitness center.
Simply reading is FUNdamental. Lake Ashton has a library plus a media center. A good book or movie can transport you to a different time and make your troubles melt away. That’s because learning is fun! Perhaps that’s why Lake Ashton’s on-site courses are so popular. (And you don’t have to worry about pulling an all-nighter; it’s just for fun.)
Fun is healthy! Decades of research show that fun things like listening to music can lower blood pressure and heart rate. A new study found that listening to and playing music can significantly reduce stress. Lake Aston’s grand ballroom is the ideal place to test that out.
The opposite of fun is stress. Stress truly does age us, according to researchers in a new study from the University of California at San Francisco. So if you get a certain high from singing or dancing or playing the clarinet, let yourself go – that high is a huge stress reliever.
Share the high. Close friendships have been linked to making everyone less susceptible to stress, depression, loss of cognitive ability, and other ills. With all the friendly people at a Florida active adult community and a daily calendar of activities, it’s almost impossible to be anything but “up.” And those with a more positive outlook are more likely to feel happy, peaceful and truly alive.
Remember, seven days without laughter makes one “weak,” according to Mort Walker, creator of the cartoon Beetle Bailey. Discover the fun feast at a Florida active adult community!
