February 5th, 2020
Staying healthy isn’t just about exercising frequently and eating plenty of vegetables. Self-care is vital to a healthy state of mind. Shearwater, an active-living community located in St. Augustine, Florida, was built with the health of its residents in mind and includes tons of ways you can rest, relax and recharge. Here are a few ways you can practice self-care and have a better sense of wellbeing, both at Shearwater and beyond.
- Commune With Nature
Nothing is more revitalizing than a breath of fresh air. Shearwater has 15 miles of nature trails to explore, but strolling through any part of sunny Florida is sure to make you feel good.
- Love Your Pet
Pets can have some powerful mental health benefits. Take a moment to cuddle with your favorite critter, and if you have a pup, a visit to Shearwater’s dog park is a must.
- Have a Spa Day
A long soak in the tub, facial, manicure or massage can make all your worries melt away. Take advantage of your stunning master bathroom at Shearwater for a stay-at-home spa experience, or head over to your favorite local spot for some pampering.
- Take a Nap
Sleep and mental health are closely connected, so do yourself a favor and take a snooze! Cozy up in your bedroom, or better yet, take a nap in a hammock and get the benefit of some fresh air.
- Socialize With Friends
Sometimes a good time with friends is just the remedy you need! Shearwater’s Lifestyle Director plans a year-round calendar of fun events and activities like wine and cheese socials, craft sessions and game nights, so it’s easy to meet up with friends and do something fun.
- Exercise the Way You Like
They always say healthy body, healthy mind! But you should exercise in a way you truly enjoy. Shearwater has a state-of-the-art Fitness Lodge if you prefer a traditional workout, nature trails for jogging and strolling, a Yoga Lawn for relaxing stretches and even a multi-lane lap pool if you prefer strokes over steps.
- Eat Enriching Foods
You shouldn’t just feed your body – your soul needs some love, too! Fruits and vegetables are always a great choice, but treat yourself occasionally with your favorite dish or sweet treat. Residents can even try their hand at gardening at Shearwater’s Community Garden, and have home-grown produce to enjoy!
