If one of your new year's resolutions is to improve your health and wellbeing, retirement to a park home could be the solution you're looking for. Imagine a stress-free existence filled with fresh air and nature, not to mention the opportunity to make new friends, bring your pets and try new activities.
Here are four benefits of living in a park home for your health, wellbeing and peace of mind:
1. A breath of fresh air
When you choose a park home, you’re choosing a lifestyle that brings with it the opportunity to spend plenty of time in the great outdoors and the fresh air. Fresh air helps to clean your lungs and can also help to boost the immune system, especially the air from trees, which will be all around you.
2. Get closer to nature
You can wake up to the sound of birdsong, take long nature walks and explore the countryside around you. Every day there is something new to see and discover. By surrounding yourself with nature you will feel calm, peaceful and relaxed, every day.
3. Take up a new hobby
Retirement is the perfect time to take up a new hobby. Our park homes, including Yarwell Mill Country Park in Cambridgeshire, offer fabulous opportunities to take up fishing, boating, sailing and canoeing. Try something completely new and different that gives you the chance to get some exercise, as well as being relaxed and happy. This is also a great opportunity to meet other couples and make new friends along the way.
4. Pet friendly
Our country parks are pet friendly, so your dog or cat can come, too. Studies have actually shown that cuddling and stroking a pet, such as a cat or dog, releases a 'cuddle' chemical that has a soothing and calming effect on us. It can help with different ailments, including high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and asthma, and, of course, with a dog, you will be taking them for regular walks and getting plenty of exercise without even realising you're doing it!
