Why Walking Around Our Lake at Maranatha Village Nourishes Your Soul

At Maranatha Village, we are a diverse community that cares. Enjoy the convenience of our on-site services and natural aesthetics like our gorgeous lake. In today’s blog by Maranatha Village, learn about how walking around our lake benefits you and your spirit. 

A Sense of Belonging

Assisted living communities are more than residential homes; in fact, Maranatha Village is ten times greater than that. Many of our residents in the Village have lived in their homes for many years. Walking around the lake compliments that feeling of home, and sense of safe communal belonging. It nourishes the soul to stroll the lakeside, taking in gorgeous calming views, gentle wildlife, and welcoming waves from all your favorite neighbors. If you have not taken a walk around the lake in a while, grab a buddy or go solo. Nourish your body, mind, and spirit at the lakeside today.  

Release Stress and Anxiety

Exercise is essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Walking is not only an excellent form of fitness due to its low-intensity benefits and sustainability, but It also provides stress relief. Walking has a direct correlation to stress reduction and elevated happiness. Those exercise benefits coupled with a promenade around the Maranatha Village Lake, and you’ve hit the low stress, soul-nourishing jackpot. Walking pumps up your endorphins, heightening those feel-good effects on the brain. Don’t wait another minute more to head to the lake to relieve stress and relax your mind.

Living in the moment

We’ve all heard the term before; “there’s no time like the present.” Live in the moment and take in the clean air and cool breeze surrounding your senses. The time is now to finally enjoy the little things and focus on what makes you happy. Walking around the lake with a friend is a great way to “live in the now.” Nurture your soul at the Maranatha Village Lakeside and appreciate the company of a kind-hearted community.
