The past year has taught us many things, not least of which is the value of meaningful connections with friends, family and community. But it’s also underscored the importance of connecting with nature, of being outdoors, breathing the fresh air and soaking in the vitamin D that comes with it!
These are among the key elements of environmental wellness, a crucial component to an overall approach to wellness that also includes nutrition, fitness, lifelong learning and personal connections. Beyond enjoying nature and fresh air, environmental wellness involves a sustainable approach to everything from laundry to recycling, energy-efficiency to safety.
How important is nature? Studies show for example, that access to nature can boost mental health and physical activity, both key to living a longer, more fulfilled life.
It’s an overarching philosophy the team at Quail Park of Lynnwood keep firmly in mind.
In tune with nature
Inside and out, Quail Park takes its cue from its natural surroundings. With its lodge-like aesthetic, the safe, comfortable, pet-friendly environment offers an abundance of those indoor pleasures – three distinct dining options, a heated pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center and a robust calendar – but residents also enjoy the wellness boost that comes from opportunities to connect with and be part of nature.
“We live in a beautiful area here in the Pacific Northwest, and we’re fortunate to be able to enjoy it virtually year-round. With the forest on our doorstep, paths and a beautiful natural setting surrounding our community, residents find their environmental wellness well cared for,” says Denis Bryant, president and CEO of Living Care Lifestyles’ recently expanded Quail Park of Lynnwood.
Boasting a stunning hilltop location, an adjacent forested preserve provides a beautiful backdrop to this vibrant community. In addition to indoor recreation amenities, residents can visit the putting green, explore the onsite walking paths or simply sip a coffee while chatting with friends among the gracious gardens.
And for those continuing a lifelong passion for gardening or discovering their green thumb for the first time in retirement, the community also offers sustainable gardening opportunities residents love.
Regardless of what environmental wellness looks like for you – gardening, hiking or simply relaxing in the great outdoors – finding a residence that lets you do it all close to home is vital.
