There’s something about water that easily calms us. Whether you’re looking out to the placid, crystal clear seas, or taking a refreshing dip at a lake, it always feels so soothing and dreamy.
And there’s science behind this. Medical experts have proven the physical and cognitive effects of water, noting that living near nature—bodies of water in particular—can lead to improved health, well-being and productivity. Water is also said to induce a meditative state, enabling you to feel calmer, more relaxed.
This is perhaps why many are drawn to lakeside communities, for example, especially during the pandemic. Now, more than ever, people have a renewed appreciation for such communities, owing to the wealth of benefits they can offer for one’s wellness.
Take, for instance, the lakeside communities of Sta. Lucia Land Inc. In these neighborhoods, the man-made lakes served as the centerpiece, offering views that are refreshing and picturesque, as well as open spaces, greenery and fresh air.
“We have long been in the business of building lake communities as we believe in the enormous benefits it brings to the community and the residents. There’s something about the lakes that we build that allow our residents to live a more relaxed and less stressful lifestyle,” explained Sta. Lucia Land Inc. President Exequiel Robles.
“The appreciation for lakeside developments, which provide generous open spaces and access to nature, became more apparent during the pandemic. Residents wanted that extra space that allowed them to move freely without having to worry about their health. Also, having access to nature helped many maintain their mental and emotional well-being,” he added.
If you’re considering to invest in a beautiful lakeside community, look no further. Here are some of Sta. Lucia’s lakeside communities that do not only offer a smart, practical investment but also help you achieve that much sought work life balance.
