Our lifestyle resort, Seachange Emerald Lakes, is built on the principles of nourish your mind, body and soul. From our 5-Star Country Club to the way we have set up our resort, we have strived to build a community in which active people over 50 can find plenty of like-minded people and develop friendships that can last the rest of their lives.
In July 2013, the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing released a document on their website called “Recommendations on physical activity for health for older Australians.” It was based on the “National Physical Activity Guidelines for Adults” by the same organisation. However, it made practical suggestions for incorporating them into your daily life.
Not a Routine, but a Healthy Lifestyle
Here is a summary of the Government’s general recommendations.
- No matter how old you are, you should think of movement as an opportunity instead of seeing it as an inconvenience.
- Every day, try to be active in as many different ways as possible.
- Engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate physical intensity exercise every day if possible.
- Add some vigorous activity into the mix a couple of times a week.
This is an oversimplification of a much larger article, but the generalisations are a good place to start for developing a lifestyle in which exercise comes naturally. That is exactly what we help you do here at Seachange Emerald Lakes.
Active Adult Living at Seachange Emerald Lakes
At Seachange Emerald Lakes, it starts with our residents. We created Seachange Emerald Lakes to be a place where active over 50s could live around like-minded people. This allows both socialisation and exercise to happen on “autopilot.” A person could get plenty of exercise just by walking their dog for two hours every day and plenty of socialisation by talking to the people they see along the way.
However, Seachange Emerald Lakes also offers a host of amenities at our 5-Star Country Club, including swimming, tennis, a gym, a steam room/sauna, a dining room, a bar, a lounge and much more.
