Since April is Stress Awareness Month, we’ve created a list of five ways to de-stress in your home and in the Whitney Ranch community!
Try out some yoga moves
Yoga is not only used as a form of exercise, but also as a way to slow life down and recenter yourself. Since all you really need is a mat (or even some soft ground), any space in your Whitney Ranch home can easily become your very own yoga studio. The spacious Great Room and tranquil outdoor area are especially nice for setting a meditative mood. Once you’ve picked your spot, we recommend checking out this article to learn how to orchestrate your calming yoga routine.
Plant a peaceful garden
Even if you have never heard of a Zen garden, they are fairly simple to create and offer an ideal space to relax. It is a style of garden originally created by Japanese Buddhist monks to be a place of meditation. It’s no surprise then that the focus of Zen gardens is minimalism. Instead of showcasing a variety of vegetables and bright flowers, Zen gardens feature small, manicured shrubs and a simplistic landscape composed of rocks and gravel that can be raked into pleasing patterns. Because Zen gardens can be made into any shape or size, your generous Whitney Ranch backyard can easily accommodate one. If creating a calm, personal outdoor space sounds appealing to you, we suggest checking out this article that covers everything you will need to start your Zen journey.
Have an at-home spa day
It’s time to bring out the scented candles and face masks — our next stress-reducing suggestion is to have an at-home spa day for yourself. Your Whitney Ranch home comes with a luxurious private bath that is the perfect setting for the ultimate relaxing experience. Dim the lights, light some candles, make a decadent snack and soak in the tub until the stress melts away. Click here for Glamour Magazine’s tips on how to maximize your personal spa experience.
Take a walk through nature
The gorgeous natural scenery in Whitney Ranch makes heading out of the house another excellent idea to add a dash of peacefulness to your day. Take a stroll through the miles of trails that connect our neighborhoods, journal about your day in one of our delightful parks, create a photo gallery of all the beautiful plants and birds that color our community. Nature is always at your fingertips in Whitney Ranch!
Take a trip to The Ranch House
Our amenity-rich community provides you with a list of ways to take some time for yourself during the day. Whitney Ranch’s community hub, The Ranch House, has fitness classes, a resort-style pool, a comfy lounge, and a cozy fireplace. With so many options to choose from, it’s easy to let the stress of your day quietly slip away.
