The sky blue, the sun out, and the thermometer at 60 degrees - what a glorious day today has been! I just had to take full advantage of this perfect pre-Thanksgiving weather, and went for a quick run around Lake Elkhorn in Columbia, MD. When you live life near a lake, you get to do that - you get to squeeze in a few moments of zen on the daily.
When you live life near a lake, or state park (I also live just minutes from Patapsco Valley trails), you get to grab your sneakers for a quick mid-day run, or sit on a bench people- and bird watching during your lunch break, or soak up some rays after work while waiting for a fish to bite, or take your meeting outdoors and brainstorm while hiking/walking laps....
When you live life near a lake (or other blue spaces), your quality of life improves.
That's not just my opinion, but proved scientifically (here's the link to one study).
When you live life near a lake, you do your mind and body good. Just having a view of nature versus a wall of concrete can improve ones mood and overall well-being. Nature is calming - the sounds of birds chirping, and gentle waves rolling onto a shore are used for white noise as a reason. It's relaxing. And when you make a conscious effort to feel less stress(ed), you give your immune system a nice boost.
If you want to be able to take full advantage of a glorious day such as today, and enjoy a quick walk/run or just a few quiet moments surrounded by nature, give me call. If you are thinking about living life near a lake, then lets get started on finding your dream house. Howard County is home to Lake Elkhorn, Centennial Lake, Lake Kittamaqundi, Wilde Lake, and Triadelphia Reservoir. The latter is also partially located in Montgomery County, and famous for the azalea garden where approx 20,000 bloom each May. There are many suburban communities that come with a water view, and are either within walking distance or just a short drive away.
When you live life near a lake, you get to squeeze in a few moments of zen on the daily. Life becomes infinitely better!
