Age 55: Start Living Your Best Life

Living your best life
If you are age 55 or higher, the time is never better to start living your best life. Do you need some ideas on how to make it happen? Consider these:

Be social

An easy and fun way to boost your health is to take part in activities that stimulate your social capital. Do you love bridge? Dancing? Trivia nights? What about sports, such as pickleball or golf? At Soleil Laurel Canyon, we offer tons of scheduled activities and on-site social groups that appeal to a wide variety of interests. These are an excellent way to socialize. Our residents mingle with fellow community members while enjoying favorite pastimes and exploring new interests.

Be active

You’ve likely heard the saying, “sitting is the new smoking.” Every bit of activity helps to improve your body, mind, and spirit. Whether you wish to lose a couple of pounds, get toned, enhance your cardio, or just want to boost your mood, all are achievable at Soleil Laurel Canyon. Walking, swimming, bocce ball, tennis, SilverSneakers classes — no matter what you enjoy most, we’ve got the facilities, activities, and friendly folks to help you attain your activity goals this year and beyond.

Explore your locale

Go out and explore your local area — you never know what you might discover. The spring and summer are especially lovely seasons for going on a hike, having a picnic at the park, or taking a boat ride on a nearby lake. Being in the location that we’re in, we’re fortunate to have easy access to the heart of Georgia Wine Country. Many of our local wineries offer tastings and tours. Of course, you can always head into the city (in our case, Atlanta) to indulge in top-notch museums, concerts, musicals, theatre events, famous speakers, and other performing arts.

Learn something new

You’re never too old to learn, even for those that are age 55+. It can actually be the best time of your life to go back to school. Your kids are grown, have flown the coop, and you may even be semi or fully retired — all giving you more time to dedicate towards educational endeavors. For residents of Soleil, continuing education is easy. Nearby Kennesaw State University is home to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) for adults aged 50+. Academic courses cover everything from personal computers to the visual arts. If you’ve been toying around with a “second act” endeavor, educational classes offer the ability to embark on that journey.

If you’re 55+ and ready to start living your best life, you owe it to yourself to start now. Contact us today so we can introduce you to what the good life is like at Soleil. You’ll be glad you did.
