A Little or a Lot: It’s Up to You!

Posted on February 02, 2018 in Health and Wellness

Socialization is one of the qualities that sets humans apart from other species. Developing and maintaining social relationships is vital for a successful and happy life, at all ages.  If being social is important to you, then an active adult community with ample opportunities to socialize and interact with each other might be of interest.

Whether you’re looking to mix and mingle in a relaxed atmosphere, engage in friendly competitions, or explore your creative side with others, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to socialize and get to know your friendly neighbors at an independent living community.

Social Activities

Common social activities, like the ones below, may pique your interest, and enable you to participate as much, or as little, as you want. Take a quick look, and see which activities may be the right fit for you!

Wii Bowling

The Nintendo Wii gaming system provides excellent opportunities for physical activities and social engagement. Enjoy bowling a few frames with friends, or set up teams and get a healthy competition going. Either way, it's a fun way to socialize with others. Plus, it helps you to sneak in some exercise without even realizing it!

Theater Classes with Willoughby, OH Fine Arts Association

Do you have a flair for acting? If so, you will have the opportunity to let the inner actor or actress in you out by participating in theater classes. Teachers from Willoughby Fine Arts Association provide you with the opportunity to play a variety of roles. You’ll also build camaraderie while you bond with other cast members.

Art Classes

Did you ever aspire to take an art class? In art classes, you can express your creativity through a variety of mediums, including painting, drawing, and even clay! You’ll not only be able to express your creative side and share your talents, but you will also be able to meet new friends who share the same interests as you.

Bridge Clubs

Do you enjoy playing bridge? If so, get your cards out and sign up to play in a bridge club. Playing bridge helps keep your mind sharp, improves your memory, and stimulates your mental acuity. And because playing bridge requires four players, it encourages socialization.

Wood Shop

Are you a carpenter who has always enjoyed creating with wood? Or has woodworking always been something that you have been interested in, but never really had the chance to explore? Working with wood is not only enjoyable for most, but it’s also a great way to investigate a new art form and make new friends in the process!
