During times of stress it’s natural to be concerned about our sense of well-being. Maybe you’ve looked into ways to feel calmer lately. Here’s an idea you might not have come across: Could building a new house help people feel more content? Let’s look at factors that can ease stress and worry.
Sleeping and Eating Well
It’s no secret that good sleep habits and healthy nutrition help us feel good. By building a new house, you can design it with a sound night’s sleep in mind. Consider separating bedrooms from the home’s more active areas to cut down on noise. Pay attention to which direction bedroom windows face. Eastern exposure with its morning sun will gradually rouse you from sleep in a natural way. But, if you’re a night owl, you might prefer avoiding that early light.
When you wake up refreshed, you feel more energized to keep the good habits rolling. A new kitchen can inspire you to prepare fresh and healthy meals at home. When building a new house, buyers have their choice of finishes, fixtures and appliances to create their dream kitchens. Many plans include pantries that are ideal for keeping cooking staples on hand. Designing a large, open kitchen could help lure your entire family into preparing meals together.
Exercise is important to feeling good and staying healthy. At Rivers Pointe Estates, there are many ways for homeowners to get out and get moving. Multipurpose trails are perfect for biking, running or walking. With pocket parks and a river overlook area, our community residents will have interesting destinations to run, walk or ride to. Two swimming pools and a state-of-the-art workout facility are in the plans, too.
Mental activity might be just as important as physical activity. Within our community of new houses, the RIVERWORKS Clubhouse will be a gathering spot for programs and events. Join a book club or head to the nearby new state-of-the-art Hebron Library to study or read.
Spending Time with Others
Isolation doesn’t feel good. Unfortunately some communities where people are building a new house don’t have places for residents to gather. As a master-planned community, Rivers Pointe Estates was designed with social interactions in mind. The planned clubhouse, pools and village green will all be spots where people can spend time together. Cornhole games and campfires are sure to draw residents together. Here, neighbors will become friends. Best of all, with the range of housing sizes and types at Rivers Pointe, people of all ages and stages of life can form enriching friendships.
In addition, when building a new house, people can choose open floor plans and outdoor living areas that are just right for entertaining. This casual type of home makes it easy to bring families and friends together.
Mother Nature has a way of making us feel calmer and more relaxed. With planned green space, hiking trails, a long view of the river and even a streamside campsite, Rivers Pointe Estates will put you back in touch with nature. The sites for our new houses are designed to maintain acres of preserved woods and green space.
Rivers Pointe Estates welcomes animal friends, too. The adjacent Rivers Pointe Stables provide horse boarding and riding lessons. Not your thing? You might enjoy just watching the horses grazing in the pastures, or bringing them carrots to nibble. Pets are family, too, at Rivers Pointe. Taking a walk with your dog can be one of the most relaxing things to do after a long day.
