You’ve probably heard the advice about “eating a rainbow” every day to attain or maintain optimum health – including a variety of fresh foods from bright red berries to orange sweet potatoes, leafy greens to purple grapes, and more.
That “rainbow” doesn’t just maintain your health and look pretty, its colorful palette provides a delicious palate, as well!
Yes, we’re in the midst of numerous “shelter in place” policies, but that does not mean you have to stay indoors. In fact, medical professionals encourage folks to spend some time outside, especially as the days are growing warmer and we’re enjoying more sunshine. (Don’t even get me started on pollen, which some Georgia residents refer to as “Southern Snow.”)
Since we’re safeguarding our health by spending more time at home these days, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with some Internet opportunities that perhaps you’ve not yet had time to master.
This week, we’re starting with Pinterest, which is akin to an online “magazine” in which you choose the topics and articles you want to read, research, and post to your Pinterest boards
As we face the uncertainty of the evolving Coronavirus outbreak, the safety and well-being of our team, partners, homebuyers and the communities in which we live, and work is our top priority. We want to update you on how we at Windsong Properties are responding to the concerns of Covid-19.
As we inch ever closer to Spring, our hours of daylight grow a little longer each day. Add to that Daylight Saving Time, and we find ourselves enjoying daylight until early evening through the month of March, making it a great time to start preparing the garden beds and containers for summer blooms and harvests.
With each kitchen at Windsong designed to be aesthetically pleasing, convenient, and functional, these tips will help you love your kitchen even more, as you prepare snacks and meals that promote your healthy, active lifestyle:
Thanks to warm (and wet!) weather since… well, probably this time last year, everything is blooming early. For those Boomers who garden, odd bloom patterns can be both a blessing and a curse: we have to use different strategies to fight weeds, protect tender buds from random cold snaps, and research to prepare for what is likely to be a hot summer.
With retirement in the rear-view mirror, Boomers often wonder what their “next act” might be. If we’re to believe our children, the world is theirs now.
What we forget, however, is that we’re not obsolete the moment we blow out the candles on our 50th, 60th, or even 80th birthdays. Our decades of experience in work, relationships, and observation make our “second act” sometimes better than our first! If you need a little bit of inspiration, take a look at these exceptional senior adults:
On February 11, 1847, Thomas Alva Edison was born in Milan, Ohio. He would go on to invent the first long-lasting lightbulb, the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and more, eventually securing 1,093 patents for items that contributed to the everyday conveniences we enjoy today. (He also founded the first research laboratory, assembling teams of innovators who contributed their ideas and work to many inventions for which Edison is famous).
While Windsong may not have a research laboratory on the scale of Edison’s lab in Menlo Park, New Jersey, Active Adults certainly benefit from the innovations present in every home and community Windsong creates.
February is Heart Health Month, playing off the whole Valentine’s Day hearts theme, and since it’s a SHORT MONTH (even with the 2020 Leap Year), here are some tips to make SHORT WORK of building habits that will contribute to your healthy heart!
