Deliberate Wellness


The quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as the result of deliberate effort.

In the daily grind of life, it can be challenging — between doctors appointments, grocery shopping, meal prepping, up-keeping your home — to prioritize what benefits your wellness and wellbeing. Things like enjoying healthy meals, making the time to go out for a walk, maybe even taking an art class — these activities take deliberate effort, planning and determination to find, coordinate and attend.

In 2018, a study was conducted by the University of Birmingham to determine if a relationship between the ‘experience’ of your home and wellbeing exist. The full report “Homes and Wellbeing — breaking down stereotypes” suggests that social housing plays a positive role in protecting people from anxiety. Interviewing a mix of social renters compared to owners and owner occupiers clearly demonstrated that for all types of tenants the one thing that mattered the most was feeling secure and having a degree of control over their living space.

Another interesting finding was that one of the most significant factors of a good home is a sense of security and confidence that your living space is a place to retreat and rest. The sense of getting away from it all.

Consider living in a community that values your wellbeing and provides immersive experiences while living in a quality home surrounded by like-minded folks. Good neighbors, good design and good management are all as important for wellbeing as a person’s tenure or tenancy. This is why it is essential to select a living environment that eases the grind of your day-to-day routine and provides a greater sense of community.

Since meeting the team at Upside, I’ve seen first-hand the type of community and resources they have established as their standard for senior living, where wellbeing is of the utmost importance.

Choose to live in a community that supports your wellness. A community that grants you access to opportunities and resources for a more comfortable and secure life. Make that deliberate choice for your wellness.

Upside is creating housing models to adapt, shape and enhance the delivery of wellbeing for its members and for society as a whole. Join us in the revolution of healthy, happy aging.
