Healthy Living for 2019 and Beyond

Posted January 16, 2019

At McCormick, healthy living is in our DNA. As we embark on a new year, it’s fitting to evaluate the best resolutions for healthy living in 2019. Here are our top 5:

1. Exercise

A key to healthy living is exercise. Not only will it help you physically, it will help minimize stress and keep your mind sharp. So come up with a schedule for your exercise routine, and get creative! Now’s the time to try new activities, fitness classes, and meet new friends.   

There is no shortage of opportunities to exercise at McCormick. Walk our miles of sidewalks and trails, or lace up your running shoes and cover lots of beautiful ground. Ride your bikes, swing a tennis racket, and shoot some hoops. It’s all here for you. 

If golf is your calling, there’s nothing better than having an award-winning golf course right outside your door at McCormick Woods Golf Club. The McCormick Woods Clubhouse also puts on fun activities such as Yoga and Mimosas which will be coming on January 27th from 10am-11am. This event costs $20 per person and includes a yoga class and a mimosa. Friends are welcome! For more information and to sign up, contact Andrea Harris at 360-329-5241.  

Are you looking to exercise indoors? There are many gyms and fitness centers near McCormick. 

  • Westcoast Fitness is a full service health club with 24 hour access, group classes, and personal training.
  • Olympic Fitness is also open 24 hours, has a multitude of group classes for all ages, and childcare. 
  • The Bremerton Family YMCA offers a wealth of fitness amenities for the whole family, including traditional fitness equipment and classes, along with a swimming and lap pool.

2. Drink Water

Exercising will also help you remember to drink lots of water, as so much good comes from this simple drink.   Never leave home without your water bottle. 

3. Get Fresh Air

Rain or shine, clean, fresh, Northwest air is really healing to help you reduce stress and sleep better.  So get outside and enjoy it!  At McCormick, we love to get outside and enjoy our fresh air.    If you haven’t yet checked out the Big Pond Trail at McCormick, be prepared for some gorgeous and tranquil moments.   Our golf course location also provides a unique opportunity to preserve green space and maintain the beauty of our natural surroundings for all to enjoy.

4.  Meet friends, old and new

Connect with neighbors to go for a jog, walk, or play a round of golf or tennis.  Are you looking to meet new people?  Try a book club, garden club, or bridge club, like those we have at McCormick.  Clubs are a fantastic way to get out, meet people, and get to know your neighbors.  Or you can always volunteer for a local non-profit organization such as the South Kitsap Helpline Foodbank or at one of the local schools.  Wherever you chose to connect, the sense of community, being a part of something bigger than yourself, is invigorating.

5.  See your Doctor regularly

Finally, make sure to see your doctor regularly – schedule that annual check-up!  Prevention is the best medicine.
