Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
Regular physical activity has many proven health benefits. But how you work those extra steps, lifts, and stretches into your day is entirely up to you. Our wellness programs are designed by experts to align with your personal wellness goals and interests. Swim laps in the pool, walk or bike on scenic trails, enjoy weekly yoga or aerobics classes, or forge a new path entirely. You can also check in with a nutritionist for healthy eating tips to help fuel your daily adventures.
No matter how independent you are, the need to feel connected and form bonds with like-minded individuals is an important part of the human experience. And for many of us, the connections we form with others is also what keeps our mental health in check. Engaging in conversation over lunch with a friend, planning a group outing in Downers Grove, or attending a lecture in the auditorium are just a few of the ways you can form new bonds at Oak Trace.
We all aspire to be part of something greater than ourselves. After all, the actions you take today inform the legacy you leave behind. Some of us achieve balance by forming volunteer groups with fellow residents and some of us find it while participating in worship services. For others, all it takes to achieve wellness is a couple minutes of meditation a day while enjoying the community grounds. The beauty of community life is that there is no shortage of ways to fulfill your spiritual needs.
