Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You work your entire life to reach the point of retirement: the point in your career where you realize you've met your goal, you've done what you had to do and you can finally sit back and reap the rewards. But if sitting back is all you have in mind, then your retirement might not be quite as enjoyable as you one time hoped. In fact, relaxing too much could lead to health issues that will interfere with your retirement plans. The trick to a healthy retirement is to keep it active. This is why Glenmoor is designed for active independent living with state of the art work out facilities and pools - and those are without mention of the amazing golfing amenities.

Why Stay Active?

In past generations, retirement marked the time of need for physical rest after years of hard labor in the factories or outside. But not anymore. With the invention of the desk job and the cubicle came generations of people who spend 20 to 30 years working inside—mostly while sitting down. So when you get to retirement, it isn't necessarily that it is time for you to physically sit down and rest after decades of manual labor. It might mean that it is time to stand up and stretch after years of keeping your mind busy and your body in check.

Glenmoor retirement community is structured around the desire to live an active lifestyle. Golfing is the ideal retirement game. It is not overly strenuous, and requires just as much wit as it does brawn. A live action game of chess, golfing requires strategy, commitment and know-how. It requires practice and it requires patience. Golfing is considered one of the best ways to stay active as you age thanks to the need for mental awareness as well as physical endurance needed to keep up with the walking across the course. In addition, golfing is a social sport—one that you can spend a day doing with a group of friends, especially outside in the mild North Florida seasons. Glenmoore is designed with this experience in mind.

Of course, golf isn't the only option at Glenmoor. The independent living community is absolutely committed to offering every amenity possible, and this includes a luxury pool and spa experience, state of the art gym and plenty of aerobic and similar workout classes that happen right inside the gates of the community.

Staying active during retirement can reduce your risk of diseases like heart disease, diabetes and hypertension. Staying social and mentally active can reduce your risk of highly genetic conditions like Alzheimer's disease. Making the choice to be both active and social can set you up for the most enjoyable retirement experience possible.

World Golf Village is location between the vibrant city of Jacksonville and charming St. Augustine, Glenmoor Retirement Community has provided elegant, worry-free living to seniors from across the nation.
