“Get outside and enjoy the sunshine…it’s good for you.”

I tell my kids all the time, “Get outside and enjoy the sunshine…it’s good for you.” Seems this sound advice from Mom has real merit. Studies show that just a few minutes of sunshine each day has real health benefits. Our bodies need Vitamin D from the sun because it is not produced naturally. If we do not have enough Vitamin D, we feel depressed. This lack of sunshine and Vitamin D deficiency is a major component in seasonal depression. However, those who get outside and go for a walk in the sunshine feel revitalized!! This leads to increased energy levels and a decrease in tension, depression and anger.

So, instead of jumping on a tread mill in the gym or navigating down long, dark hallways of other communities, lace up your shoes and go for a walk outside……on the campus of The Cypress. I’m told everyday by visitors at The Cypress, your residents are so much friendlier. I truly believe our members feel better and I believe it has to do with getting outside, going for a walk in the sunshine and getting some fresh air.

The Cypress campus is perfect for enjoying a walk in the sunshine. 65 acres of beautiful landscaping. Two lakes, waterfalls and water gardens and many cheerful friends along the way. I don’t know what lifts your spirits more…the sunshine and fresh air or the happy faces of friends along the way. Either way, you are bound to feel better. Come join us at The Cypress…for a walk in the sun!!

“Livelier than my country club crowd”

I received the comment below yesterday from “One glad son” of one of our Cypress Members:

Went to Sunday Brunch at The Cypress again yesterday and it always lifts my spirits.  I’m 23 years younger than my parents, but it seems that Mom and Dad and their friends are livelier than my country club crowd.  They really enjoy where the live and I don’t think they have ever been happier.  My sister and I feel blessed that they are in such a positive environment.

One glad son

He’s right! The Cypress community – fascinating people in a place free from worry with opportunities to do about anything and everything one would want – creates wonderful times on a daily basis, not only for our Members, but for their families, too. With more than 100 different scheduled activities a month, not to mention the conviviality of meals and other social encounters, a lively and healthy “vibe”  is constantly generated; one that puts unavoidable smiles on faces. Just walk on our campus and you will see so yourself!

And for those Members who prefer (or need!) moments of quiet solitude, our 62-acre campus provides countless places, both indoors and outside, to reflect and recharge. Speaking of outside, a recent study shows being outside, as our gardens, lakes and walking trails invite,  adds more to wellness than almost anything, but more on that next week.

Thank you “glad son!”
