Additional Benefits of an Active and Wellness-Focused Lifestyle for Those Who Are 55 and Older

  • February 1, 2023

We’re all aware of the many physical benefits of an active lifestyle: improved cardiovascular health, stronger bones and muscles, and a healthy body weight. While physical activity and a lifestyle focused on health and wellness are important throughout our lives, it is never more beneficial than in our later years. While active adult wellness keeps our body strong, did you know it also offers a great deal of psychological well-being as well? Here are some additional benefits of 55+ wellness you may not have considered!

Improved mental health. Sure, living an active lifestyle contributes to your physical health, but it also offers a variety of benefits for your mental health. Regular exercise has been shown to reduce stress and help to combat depression. Physical activity even helps to keep your mind sharp as you age. By improving your social circle through fitness classes and exercise buddies, you’ll build an important support network.

Social wellness. So many forms of exercise can be done as a group, and this allows you to enjoy an active social life along with your active lifestyle. That goes double when you’re living in a master-planned community built around active adults, where amenities and fitness classes are around every corner. You don’t always need an official fitness class to enjoy the social benefits of an active lifestyle, though. Something as simple as forming a walking group with friends and neighbors will do it.

Spiritual well-being. Exercise is good for the soul. Anyone who has ever taken a walk to clear their mind knows that. Tending to your spiritual well-being is as important as tending to your physical health. Regardless of your personal belief system, you can find increased peace of mind and a sense of calm and serenity in the simple activities of your healthy lifestyle, from walks through nature to the repetition of an exercise program to the bonds you build with your friends and neighbors as you work out together.

Intellectual sharpness. Keeping your mind active is as important as keeping your body active. The good news is that you can do both at once. A variety of games and puzzles will help you keep your mind active, from sudoku to crosswords to brain-teasers and more. Even the simple act of taking a morning walk or a vigorous after-dinner constitutional can help to clear and focus your thoughts.

We’ve written before about the importance of a live-well lifestyle and how it influences everything that we do here at Chambers Creek. For those who are finding new purpose for their next phase of life and seeking an active adult community and lifestyle to call their own, we’ve gathered all the amenities you’ll need to focus on your physical, mental, social, spiritual, and intellectual wellness alongside your new friends and neighbors in our 55+ active adult community.
