When we say Optimal Living®, what do we mean? Optimal is more than just an average, normal life and into something unique. In fact, those who believe in Optimal Living® challenge the notion that normal is satisfactory, insisting instead on an exceptional lifestyle. That’s what we offer in our senior communities, and we’d like to explain the concept a little further for you.

Optimal Living® is different for everyone because each person is unique. It’s up to you to define what is optimal for you, and to do this you need to know who you are and what you desire for life, then find the keys to achieve your goals. What are the keys to Optimal Living®?

Success: How do you define success? It’s about looking at yourself objectively, discovering your strengths and weaknesses, determining what you want from life, and creating attainable goals.

Purpose: Having a sense of purpose allows you to be productive and helps bring balance to your life.

Lifestyle: The Optimal Lifestyle is open to enjoying life and creating a healthy lifestyle.

Relationships: The relationships in our lives make it fulfilling and happy.

Vitality: The energy of the optimal life comes from maintaining a balance within your body, mind, and heart. This is accomplished when you exercise, eat healthy food, meditate, and relax, and nurture your relationships.

Philosophy: The way you view the world says a lot about your personality. You can overcome negative thought patterns that rob you of joy by believing in the concept of continual growth, maintaining a childlike imagination that allows you to fully experience the world, and holding onto faith in God to comfort you and bring you joy in all things.
