Health and fitness are topics that most of us are interested in. Whether you want to lose a few pounds or you just want to be sure to stay in shape so that you can chase toddlers, participate in a half-marathon or age gracefully, you know that eating well, reducing stress and exercising often are important. When you live at Sansara, there are countless opportunities for you to improve your health and boost your fitness level. Between the amenities offered and your excellent location, here are some of the ways that you can get — and stay — healthy in downtown Sarasota.
RELAX AT THE SANSARA, SARASOTA, FL
With expansive windows featuring views of the gorgeous Sarasota Bay, you can enjoy some pretty deep relaxation without leaving your home in Sansara! Want to get closer to that warm, turquoise water? No problem… A quick drive over the John Ringling Causeway will bring you out to Lido Key, where you can while away the afternoon on the white sand or while wading (or swimming) in the gentle surf. Watching the sun sink into the Gulf offers the ultimate in relaxation. If you’re hoping to reduce your stress level without getting in the car, why not practice some yoga or get a massage in the on-premises yoga and massage room? You could also relax with some friends at the community firepit, or even rest in one of the shaded cabanas that are equipped with daybeds. The common areas at Sansara use water, natural stone, bamboo and eleents of feng shui to facilitate both relaxation and self-awareness. Part of the tropical lifestyle that you’re buying when you purchase a home in Sansara includes plenty of time to kick back and relax, so be sure to take advantage of it!
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF AMENITIES AT SANSARA
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends exercising for a minimum of 30 minutes per day. This is really simple when you live at Sansara. You can simply take a stroll to the amenities deck, where you can swim in the pool, or go to the fitness center to use the various equipment, including weights. Since Southwest Florida’s climate lends itself well to outdoor activities all year long, living within walking distance to many downtown amenities allows you to use the “world gym,” where you simply walk to wherever it is that you’re going! For example, instead of brewing your coffee at home, walk the very short distance to Burns Court Cafe or Cafe Amici Downtown, where you can get your morning java (hold the sugar and choose skim milk if you are cutting down on calories!). The Marie Selby Botanical Gardens and the Sarasota Opera House are also within walking distance. In fact, with a WalkScore of 91, Sansara makes it possible to get all of your errands done without even moving the car from its parking spot!
EAT WELL IN DOWNTOWN SARASOTA
With all of that walking around that you’ll be doing, you are going to get hungry. Whole Foods, a grocery store offering fresh, organic and free-trade items, is located under a half-mile away. The Sarasota Farmers Market is also just a quick walk away from your home at Sansara. What to do with all of this food? Bring it home and cook it up in your very own gourmet kitchen, that’s what! Whether you prefer an electric or gas cooktop, Sansara has you covered, because every residence is wired or piped for both. Don’t feel like cooking? Don’t worry; there are a variety of cafes and restaurants offering lots of healthy fare. Simply tell your server if there are any ingredients that you’d like to avoid, and your chef will do the rest.
