Sunshine, warm weather, and a beautiful community to immerse yourself in are only a few of the many things to look forward to at Creekside Oaks Independent Living Community this spring. As winter fades into spring, we can not wait to share some of our favorite activities to do at and around our independent living community. Located in Folsom, CA, a town with immeasurable charm, and voted one of the top places to retire by World Report, there will be no shortage of sunshine and fun this season. Keep reading for our must-do list of activities that will be sure to help you soak up all of the sunshine.
Take a Trip to a Local Park
What better way to spend time outside than enjoying the beautiful location we are based in? Whether it be a walk on The Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail, or sitting and enjoying the views in Hinkle Creek Nature Area, Folsom is home to 48 developed parks, meaning there is no shortage of outdoor opportunity in our surrounding parks. Watch families enjoy time outside at the family parks, or pick one with more natural scenery. Either way, this is a great way to spend a relaxing afternoon in the sunshine.
Take Part in Our Step By Step Walking Club
We pride ourselves on our wonderful amenities and activities we provide for our residents. If outdoor exercise is what you are looking for, we always have you covered at our Sacramento-area independent living community! Join our Step By Step Walking Club to engage with your neighbors and get outside this spring! With set times throughout the week, we make it easy and accessible to get outside and enjoy all that the spring has to offer. Be sure to add this to your schedule this spring!
Enjoy the California Sunshine With a Good Book
If you’re looking for an excuse to get outside this spring, try grabbing an old favorite or a new book and take a seat in the sunshine. Reading outside is not only a great way to relax, but it also helps stimulate your mind. With proven health benefits correlated with spending time in the sun, this outdoor activity is twofold, giving you all of the intellectual benefits of reading and the physical benefits of being outdoors. If you are struggling with which genre to choose from, we recommend trying something new! If you always lean towards fiction, try your hand at a biographical novel of someone you find interesting. If romance is your thing, give science fiction a shot. Spring is the perfect time to try something new!
Carve Out Time in Your Daily Routine
As simple as this may sound, allotting just 30 minutes in your schedule each day to sit outside can have a huge impact on your overall well being. Increased sun exposure has been linked to an increase in cognitive function and happiness, and it also helps to regulate your sleeping patterns. Take this time to socialize with friends, sit in the quiet and relax, or just listen to music. Whatever you choose to do, we always recommend taking a few minutes for yourself every day. Our California independent living community prides itself on providing a relaxing and clean environment, so you are able to unwind and simply relax outside as the weather gets warmer.
As spring rolls around, we are excited to get outdoors here at Creekside Oaks. We strive to encourage our residents to take advantage of all that our community and Folsom has to offer as the weather gets warmer. Make sure that if you choose to get outside in the sunny days ahead, you take proper precautions including wearing sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses.
