Jan 18, 2024 Blog, Lifestyle

The Beacon Lake lifestyle is truly one to be admired. Living in Beacon Lake affords you seemingly endless opportunities to restore and maintain balance in your life. Since it’s crucial for your wellbeing to have a solid balance of work, play, and relaxation, we understand the need to formulate a plan that helps you accomplish all your goals, both personally and professionally. 

Thankfully, at Beacon Lake, the luxurious amenities are available to do just that. Whether you want to spend less time working, more time playing, or just carve out some quality relaxation time, Beacon Lake and its community can help you strike the lifestyle balance that’s right for you. After all, there’s nothing quite like living in a beautifully planned community to help strengthen your mental health and melt your cares away.

Keeping Your Work Hours in Balance

Thanks to our constantly “on-the-go” technology including smartphones, apps, tablets, Wi-Fi, and home computer systems, you might feel as though you’re at work all of the time, even if you’re in the comfort of your own home. Managers now expect emails and voicemails to be answered outside of standard work hours, adding to a lifestyle where you’re always on the clock, even if you’re really not. Beacon Lake - Work Life Balance

So, what can you do in order to balance your work life with your personal life? Easy – unplug! Turn your phone off or on silent. Leave it behind when you go to a gathering at the clubhouse or enjoy cocktails around our roaring fire pit. Spending some time away from all electronics is good for you and your family. In order to truly live the Beacon Lake lifestyle, you’ll need to spend some time unplugged from the world, and thanks to our many amenities and the amazing Florida weather, you’ll have plenty of chances to do so.

Spending Your Time at Play

We say that you’re never too old to play! Since a balanced lifestyle includes some time doing recreational activities, otherwise known as “at play,” you’ll need to make some time for having fun. Whether you need to schedule in your fun time or plan out your activities thanks to your busy schedule, Beacon Lake makes it easy to squeeze in these activities since you won’t have to leave the community in order to enjoy them.

  • Outdoor Sports – What’s more fun than watching outdoor sports taking place? Participating in them, of course. Beacon Lake has tennis and pickleball courts, a croquet field, a large multipurpose playing field, and even an event lawn. Consider putting together your own doubles teams or joining an existing resident led match, so you can soak up some good old-fashioned play time.
  • Learn Something New – There’s always something going on at Beacon Lake, thanks to the meeting room, card room, social room, and demonstration kitchen. Want to learn how to make a new dish or enhance your cooking skills? Take a class in our culinary studio. Prefer to join in a card game or spend some time socializing? We have spaces for that as well. Make sure to check our event calendar to see what fun activities you can add to your schedule.
  • Spending Time in Nature – What’s better than hiking along a multipurpose path or kayaking on a paddle lake? Not having to leave your community in order to do so. Beacon Lake has a paddle-friendly lake, plenty of multipurpose paths for jogging, walking, and biking, and even a dog park so that your pup can get in on the action. Add in the junior Olympic pool and crew house, and you have several watersports to choose from as well. 
  • Getting in Your Exercise – For those who choose to exercise indoors on treadmills, exercise bikes, or in the weight room, Beacon Lake has a fully stocked gym and fitness center, complete with aerobics classes that can help you get in that full body workout you’ve been craving.

Taking the Time to Relax

Relaxation 101 – the third part of a balanced lifestyle involves relaxation. When you’re on the go all of the time, you end up putting extra stress on your mind and body. Spending some time relaxing is an essential part of a healthy work-life balance. Thankfully, there are just as many ways to relax as there are chances to play at Beacon Lake.

  • Enjoy the Fire Pit – It’s hard not to relax when you’re in front of a fire pit. Kicking back, watching the flames, and possibly making s’mores (or simply roasting marshmallows) can be a key ingredient to perfecting your mental health. You also have your choice of joining a group of people around the fire pit for some fun and relaxing conversation, or enjoying it on your own, appreciating the quiet. 
  • Spend Time at the Beach – Did you know that Beacon Lake has its own beach? So not only do you not need to travel far in order to soak up some sun or lounge under an umbrella, but you don’t have to worry about the parking, people, and other issues that you encounter at a public beach. This makes it even easier to relax, read a book, or simply close your eyes and bask in the beautiful Florida wether. 
  • Stroll Along the Boardwalk – That’s right. We said boardwalk! While it doesn’t consist of fancy carnival games and rides like some of the bigger boardwalks, it is perfect for a leisurely stroll. Wandering along the boardwalk and watching people paddling on the lake can be a wonderful way to relax. 
  • Have a Leisurely Outdoor Meal – There’s nothing quite like dining alfresco. Once you get your plates situated outdoors and everyone takes their seat, you can enjoy great conversations and a delicious meal. Want a quiet place to picnic and just be with your own thoughts? Beacon Lake has plenty of places to sit and eat outside, so you won’t have to go far at all.
