Once upon a time, networking took place in a private club or at a nice restaurant, where business-casual attire and cards were exchanged over “elevator pitches.”
My, how times have changed. Thanks in part to the aftermath of COVID, and the work-from-home options available through ZOOM and other online platforms, the face of business networking has changed, as well.
What’s interesting, though, is that networking isn’t all about business anymore. It’s how we meet friends, share ideas, and provide (or receive) support so we don’t feel so separated from the world.
And that’s where BRUNCH comes in!
Ask anyone what they want in their “dream home,” and you’ll hear things like:
These responses all tie back to one common theme: enjoyment
Rise and shine! May is Better Sleep Month, so it’s the perfect time to look at your sleep habits, which includes different features of your bedroom, as well as your daily (nightly) bedtime routine.
If you go to bed late, experience restless sleep, and make a habit of hitting the “snooze” button on your alarm clock, it’s probably a good idea to make some changes that promote restful, rejuvenating sleep that allows you to wake refreshed and energized.
Everywhere you look, it seems that neighborhoods are popping up within easy reach of all-inclusive communities, where shopping, dining, entertainment, healthcare, and more are available via walking, cycling, or a very short drive.
Neighborhoods like these appeal to a variety of homebuyers, from active singles to active seniors, as attractive homes with livable floorplans, luxury features, and low-maintenance exteriors offer the pride of home ownership without the hassle of lawn care and the like.
As the Baby Boomer generation reached retirement age, active adult became associated with folks in that bracket, but it applies to adults of all ages and stages.
Many of the lifestyle choices we make in our 20s and 30s affect us for the rest of our lives. But even if we’ve been distracted (or physically inactive) as we dedicate lives to careers, developing an active lifestyle wherever you are now can help ensure you maintain health, wellness, and happiness throughout your lifetime.
In 2023, the first Windsong homes and communities celebrate their 20th anniversary, marking two decades of easy living with spacious homes filled with natural light, plenty of storage, wide sidewalks and amenities to encourage outdoor activities, plus plenty of neighbors who become friends. And, of course, each Windsong neighborhood is strategically located for ease of travel, shopping, dining, and interaction with the overall community of which it is a part.
These days, everywhere you look there’s a new “stress-relieving” remedy.
What we have to remember is, stress has been a part of humans for as long as there have been humans. And just as the triggers and symptoms of stress are different for everyone, so are the ways of relieving it, or of minimizing our susceptibility.
Although stress has been around forever, people have sought stress relief in some form or fashion, with a focus on mental, physical, and emotional health. In April 1992, Stress Awareness Month was introduced, and it has been an annual focus ever since.
For two decades, Windsong has developed homes and neighborhoods in communities where Active Adults have found renewed vitality, vigor, and joie de vivre. Single-story living, with bonus rooms and ample storage, mean plenty of space for hobbies, guests, and designated space for seasonal décor and keepsake items, making right-sizing an easy decision.
When we think about what makes a great kitchen, the first things that come to mind include modern appliances, proper lighting, ample storage, and a central space that makes the kitchen the heart of the home.
We think about how we will use the space, but rarely consider how the space will work for us.
March is Nutrition Month, so it’s the perfect time to give your kitchen makeover
February is National Bird-Feeding Month, which makes sense, as several varieties of migrating birds begin their annual trek as soon as trees and shrubs begin setting buds.
If you’ve had bird feeders out all winter, you will have noticed the non-migrating birds, like blue jays, woodpeckers, and the like, have enjoyed the feast. But they’ll soon have to share as robins, tanagers, grosbeaks, thrushes, and orioles start on their journeys to northern climes.
