As we bid farewell to 2021, and begin to look forward to the new year, what will 2022 bring for you?
If you’re ready to shake off the monotony and embrace what sparks excitement in your heart and imagination, there’s no better time than now to start exploring what that may look like.
It’s true that the unknown can be an unnerving thing – it can be much easier to stick with what we know, even if it no longer brings us joy.
Start this year by taking stock of what makes you happiest and what parts of your life you could change to add to that joy. For example:
- Your time – If you’re retired, you likely looked forward to catching up on all those books you hadn’t read yet, or practicing your choral skills or diving into a waterfit class. But now that you’re at home more, the chores haven’t gone away. If cooking, cleaning and lawn mowing are getting in the way of all you’d looked forward to, it may be time to let the team at Quail Park of Lynnwood look after the chores while you join the choir, get creative in the garden or explore your artistic side.
- Your home – You’ve likely lived in your home for many years and it’s comfortably familiar. But it may also be too big for your needs today. Beyond the housekeeping, a house can be costly when you consider the maintenance, repairs, utilities and taxes, and everything else that homeownership brings. What if you could forego those tedious draws on your time and income and instead enjoy turnkey living in a beautifully appointed residence perfectly sized for your needs today? At Quail Park, residences range from independent living cottages and apartments to assisted living and memory care accommodations, plus a recently added Enhanced Assisted Living area.
- Your social circle – When we’re at work, or our children are actively involved in school, sports or other pastimes, our social circles can seem expansive – too much so at times. But as careers wind down and family activities evolve, our world can suddenly become much smaller. After retirement, that isolation can impact our mental health and in turn, take its toll physically. For those wanting to live well long into their retirement years, surrounding ourselves with a vibrant, engaging community is vital. It’s one reason residences like Quail Park of Lynnwood are so appealing – friends new and old are right down the hall, or in the library or your favorite fitness class, but you also enjoy the benefits of your own private suite when solitude calls.
