Are You Colorful Enough?When it comes to getting the best nutrients, most of America is falling short. And, unfortunately “falling short” means higher obesity rates, risks to heart health and a climbing Type 2 Diabetes rate. But, instead of complex diets and expensive vitamins, what if eating better is as simple as, doing what Mom always said?
Swing Through The Summer
The Masters may be over, but you can still spend the summer mastering your golf game. At Holbrook Communities, we believe that active adult living should be about doing what you love. So here are some of our top golfing tips to help you step up your game on the green.
It’s As Easy As Riding A BikeWho of us doesn’t remember the rush of excitement when cruising down a new, undiscovered bike path? Our banana seat and sissy bar in place to allow for our best friend to catch a ride, with the wind whipping past, we were free! Well at least until after Labor Day when school started back. But somewhere along the lines we forgot that thrill, we traded our trusted “blue comet” for a Honda, and sacrificed the freedom of the open road to four walls and a desk. However, no one said that biking had to remain in our childhood. In fact, thanks to the excellent exercise factor, biking is making a great comeback for many active adults.
Talking To Adult Children About Needing SpaceWith as much as one-third of America’s young adults still living at home, many active adults are finding it hard to cut the apron strings and live their own lives. But wanting to live free from the kids and explore new horizons does not mean you are selfish parents; it just means you are ready to downsize and your kid isn’t. So here are a few tips on communicating your own “need for space” when it’s time for the birds to leave the nest.
Farm To Table Means More Than Healthy Food
One of the best ideals that Holbrook Communities is known for is our love of great food and a wellness-based lifestyle. When food not only tastes good and is nutritious, we are more likely to choose wisely when faced with the decision of, “What’s for dinner?” That is why we see a lot of value in the farm to table concept as an excellent opportunity to marry the best in restaurant fare with a good plan for healthy eating.
