Physical and mental wellness are equally important and often intertwined. Medical experts say that there is a symbiotic relationship between the two.

Supporting both critical aspects of health is equally important but can be difficult, during stressful times like the second wave of the pandemic. It’s important for people to look for alternative ways to focus on both body and mind and take active steps towards the pursuit of overall wellness.

At Hiranandani Parks, Oragadam, the wide range of amenities includes a swimming pool, a well-equipped gym, themed gardens, world-class sporting facilities and much more to help the residents stay fit and get over the pandemic’s negative impact on mental and physical health.

A majority of respondents who took part in a survey said that stress and anxiety have taken a toll on their well-being more than ever before. While these are concerning results, the good news is that most of them are keen to improve their current condition as the pandemic has shed a spotlight on the importance of fitness.

Health experts say that staying active holds the key to reducing stress. Also when one performs physical exercise, the brain releases a chemical called dopamine, commonly referred to as the “feel good” chemical because of its ability to contribute to a sense of happiness and positive mental disposition.

Here are three ways by which owning a home at Hiranandani Parks helps to enhance  mental and physical well-being:

1)  A stimulated mind is a happy one

Variety is the spice of life and that can be tricky when stuck at home. To keep your mind engaged and your body active, try infusing fun out-of-the-box elements into your normal fitness routine. At Hiranandani Parks, Chennai, that could mean walking in one of the landscaped gardens or trying a new sport like golf or equestrian, joining the gym and kick-starting a new fitness schedule, or trying any racquet sports. The choice is wide.

2) Exclusive yoga and meditation studio

Yoga and meditation are two forms of physical and mental exercises that have stood the test of time. Popular to help manage and even lower stress. Practicing yoga regularly helps to clear the resident’s mind and offers a level of calm, focusing attention on the matter at hand and increase concentration. On the other hand, practicing meditation regularly will help to clear the mind, wipe away the negative thoughts, and hit the refresh button. The trendy yoga studio at Hiranandani Parks, Oragadam, helps residents try out yoga and meditation in a serene atmosphere.  What’s more, the Brindavan garden at the 360-acre township, popular for its spiritual significance, offers a perfect environment to meditate in peace.

3) Rest “actively”

Incorporate what is called “active rest” into your work schedule. For example, after exercising at the well-equipped gym at Hiranandani Communities, Chennai, residents can spend the next day taking a casual stroll in any one of the 12 themed gardens. Doing so rather than stopping altogether keeps the body working and blood flowing as well as ensuring faster recovery of muscles.
