Creative pursuits have a positive impact on wellbeing

PARTICIPATION in the arts and creative pursuits has been proven to have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing, improving quality of life for those who wish to remain fit and well.

At The Gardens on Lindfield, residents enjoy regular activities and events that stimulate health and wellbeing, a sense of connectedness and offer opportunities to stay fit and healthy.

Residents can participate in weekly tai chi, gardening, line dancing and art and craft groups.

The health benefits from participation in the arts can include improved mobility and motor control, greater self-esteem and confidence, higher social engagement and beneficial effects on mental health.

Village Manager Baden Corke believes that these regular classes are beneficial to the happiness and wellbeing of residents.

"Creative activities are great stimulant for hand-eye coordination and give residents the opportunity to interact.

Most importantly, it keeps them very active," he said.

"These activities also contribute to the overall sense of community at The Gardens on Lindfield. It's what makes this village such a special place," said Mr Corke.

During October and November, Lendlease will present the third annual Spring Retirement Festival celebrating creative life through dance, music, art, fashion and food.

Be sure to pick up your program in the October edition of The Gold Coast Seniors.

Condominiums at The Gardens on Lindfield start at $320,000 for two bedrooms and a car space.
